Also, want to throw one in there for Hopewell. I know the people there and it's real real solid.

    I think theyíre majorly underrated because they donít like following trends that much. They like to do their own thing which I respect. There's certainly a lot more hit/miss with them, but when they hit, they really crush it.

    Apex Predator is my go-to in the summer, too.

    If anyone hears of any pits going for actual face (not this crazy LiveNation "platinum" ticket stuff), let me know!

    Any good places to hang out eat/drink near the venue? Coming up from Dallas and staying at a VRBO near Millennium Park

    Re: *** Official Chicago 2020 ***

    Just found out right now that "The Scout" is permanently closed. That seemed to be the unofficial pre-DMB bar the last time they played at northerly and it was pretty fun and not far. Anyone that live in that area know if something has taken it's place or still vacant because of COVID? I'm a stupid suburban dad now. I'm sure there are some other suggestions, but there is a lot "close" (1-2miles), but not a lot of options super close - if that makes sense.

    The venue is a little bit difficult to get to, so be prepared to walk and/or take advantage of a pedicab. Doesn't sound like it will be an issue for you since you are staying near Millennium Park - but don't Uber unless you absolutely have to. Get within a mile or two of the venue in advance and you will be very happy you aren't stuck in HORRIBLE traffic later on.

    I'm just hoping they allow for tailgating still. I used to go the bar route and then walked to the venue 2+ miles away which wasn't the best. The tailgating setup in the grassy area by the beach was a blast the last time they played there.

    I feel like we have this discussion every year butÖ Iím from Chicago and NI is my least favorite venue. Itís great in the summer, right on the beach and a view of the city as the background, but itís inconvenient to get to. Not impossible but itís tough. You trade a nice location for lack of transportation. End of any concert haS thousands of people walking down LSD.

    Yea Scout closed. Without Bears games, concerts or after work happy hours they couldnít survive. That has to be 80% of their business. Havnt heard anything about Flos and Santos

    I love NI, but also like walking and have accepted the fact it will take me over an hour to get home to Lake View.

    Re: *** Official Chicago 2020 ***

    Hey y’all - I have 4 LiveNation PIT tickets for Chicago, looking to swap for Warehouse PITs for anyone that isn’t concerned with using the Warehouse early entry. We have a big group, and trying*to get us all in there quick with my group of friends.

    I can transfer my PITs via Ticketmaster to you and will pay for shipping of course for the Warehouse tickets, or can pick up local in Chicago if you live here.

    Thanks!

    Hey all, just a heads up that there is a Travelzoo deal for the Kimpton Gray hotel that is good for the DMB weekend. It is $169/night which I thought was a good price, figured I would share

    That's an awesome deal. The Kimpton is nice and Vol. 39 is a cool cocktail bar. If you stay at there, highly recommend heading a bit west and checking out Randolph in the West Loop for some food/restaurants.

    Haven't been to Chicago for a minute so we went ahead and jumped on those Warehouse reserved. Locked down the same hotel we had for Fare Thee Well in 2015. Might hit the Sunday game at Wrigley like we did in 2015 too, but I'm wondering if those Crosstown Classic tix are gonna be a little too expensive.

    They should be pricey given that both teams are going to be good and it's at Wrigley. But if you're making a full trip out of it, fuck it. You'll enjoy yourself.

    You could also have a great time watching it in Wrigleyville somewhere fun and scalping bleacher seats in the 2nd or 3rd inning if the price makes sense.

    Warehouse Instant Ticket Drop. Lower Reserve Pairs for both nights. I snagged a couple for Saturday for some friends. Fingers crossed for decent seats.

    We got 206 row D Friday and 205 row J Saturday through instants. Just snagged Crosstown Classic tickets for Sunday through the Cubs at the noon onsale.

    Go Sox

    Re: *** Official Chicago 2020 ***

    I've been poking around different sites, but can't find anything about tailgating, so I assume it's out. We did tailgate in 2014 in a soldier field lot, then took boats across the water. But I'm thinking maybe they don't allow that anymore. Anyone know of anything different?

    This is my biggest worry as well. I loved tailgating by the Adler Lot and you're right next to the venue. There haven't been any parking passes made available by the usual outlets so I have no clue what their plan is.

    Go Sox for sure. You'll definitely be good in 205 I would think. Row D is awesome in 206 but hopefully you're closer to the center aisle as opposed to more off to the side.
