Tickets

Am going to both shows. Got an e-mail that my tix for 5/5 have been shipped but no word on the 5/4 tickets.

Anyone already received their tix for the 5/4 show?

Extended Stay Deluxe

I'm staying at the Extended Stay Deluxe on Touhy Avenue. It looks like it's just a block or two from the arena. The rate is $89 a night and it has a kitchenette....if that's the kinda thing you're looking for. I chose this place because it appears to be next to a park with a big lake. Maybe there will be some good views and some kind grass there to enjoy. Look on the map, the hotel is within walking distance of the park that is northwest of the arena.

Shakedown...

I haven't been to a Chicago show before so I'm not sure what to expect. Anyone know how funny the Arena is about cameras, etc.? Earlier post about Shakedown Street - any word on where? I'll be staying with friends (they're not hitting the show) for the weekend before, but hate to be stuck sitting all day Monday waiting for the lovelight to shine on down...

We will be at Hubby bears, before and after the game I heard it is a huge bar. So the more heads the better. Safe travels -- E

Place to stay

Unless there is an Embassy Suite's next to the airport the only one I know of is downtown Chicago where I stayed last year. That is a good 1/2 hour drive across town to Allstate Arena. Just my 2 cents....
