Check out the details for this GREAT weekend trip at http://www.tallchicago.org/Weekend
Note that attendees must be members of a tall club somewhere first. That's where the Tall Club of Milwaukee comes in. See our web site for membership info at http://tallclubofmilwaukee.org
We carpool down and back, and some people share rooms to bring the costs down.
Update on the pre-weekend events starting Thursday Jan 24 for early birds:
From Linda Huege on Facebook:
The Park At Rosemont (http://www.rosemont.com/the_park_at_rosemont.php) Thursday night. Hotel shuttle will transport you there and back. Friday's Museum adventure is the Art Institute of Chicago with FREE admission to Illinois residents. We can "buddy up" with non-IL guests and each pay half price. Friday night TRIVIA at the hotel, then costume party/dance followed by after-hours food and open bar. Saturday, ice skating, Chinatown and other day trips planned. Saturday night semi-formal cocktail reception, dinner and dance and ---- MORE after hours food and open bar.
There is a pool and decent exercise room at the hotel. And the hotel shuttle delivers people to the Blue line if you wish not to drive downtown.
