Well, it looks like I'll be headed to Chicago this fall...

My brother is getting married! STB-SIL asked me to be a bridesmaid.

It's not until Sept 1 (tentative), but I'm assuming I'll be in town about a week. Anybody want to meet up for dinner? I'll post again closer to the actual date, of course!

ETA:
Looking at August 24-ish

Oooh, I've always wanted to go to Chicago, and my sister has been talking about getting a summer home there. If the stars align I would love to grab dinner/drinks!

ETA: Congrats on the growing family.

Take an armed escort. It's actually more dangerous than DC.

Thanks Crescita just talked to the FSIL for 20 minutes on the phone. We've only met once, but I like her. It's still weird to me that my brother is actually being nice to someone though. What's up with that?!

Keep me apprised if you're going to be in town!

My brother lives in Lincoln Park (I think that's the neighborhood name? Something like that), but it sounds like the wedding will be south of the city. I'll probably stay with one of my college friends who lives around there, since I'm planning to be in town about a week to help with wedding hoopla.

Ama - I MAY be able to swing this. A whole lot of planets to align to make it happen, but there's a possibility.

Yes, Lincoln Park, easy area to get to and around, and LOTS of good places to grab dinner!!

Is it safe to say that weekends are better than week nights for availability?

I'm looking at flights and they're actually pretty reasonable, just $250RT right now. Considering being crazy and booking 6 months before the trip.

I can either
1) fly out on Saturday morning and be there for 10 days, taking 5 vacation days from work and missing two days of class, but have Saturday night to see lovely SI folks
or
2) fly out Tuesday evening and be there for 6 days, taking 3 vacation days from work and missing one day of class, but have to see SI folks on a weeknight.

ETA: The plane ticket costs are the same, and I'm staying with a friend who lives at the north end of town, so no cost for a longer visit.

Oh, and this is the last week of August.

The one thing Lincoln Park doesn't have is parking....

$250 RT from DC sounds high. Have you checked Southwest into Midway?

We can potentially make it or not make it either way - just can't predict.

Weekends are always better for me and I happen to be Teslet-free the last weekend in August.

Southwest into Midway is typically hella-cheap.

I know, I usually fly my boss into Midway when she goes to Chicago, but Southwest is expensive. I guess I should wait a bit.

United tickets for next month are only $158, so hopefully it'll go down.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, Chicago isn't too far of a drive for me. But, the last weekend in August, I think we will be at Niagara Falls.

depending how you count, it will be the 2nd to last weekend in August. Labor Day weekend I'm booked solid with wedding stuff - so it's the weekend before that that I'm hoping to meet up with SI Lovelies.

I will be giving birth sometime in August, so I'm out!

But have an awesome trip!! So many good places to see/eat in Lincoln Park!
