Please join us for breakfast and a tour of the Magnificent Drake Hotel. On Saturday January 15th we'll gather in the historic Drake Brothers Restaurant in the hotel for a meal to celebrate our New Year of explorations with the Windy City Explorers. We'll converse about the rich history of this property and be treated to a private tour of the property by hotel management. If it's available, we might even get a peek into the Presidential Suite where Princess Diana stayed in 1996. If we look carefully during our tour, we might even recognize scenes from the classic movies Mission: Impossible, Risky Business, My Best Friend's Wedding, Hero, What Women Want, Continental Divide, Flags of Our Fathers, and Wicker Park which all include scenes filmed at the Drake. Finally, we'll be sure to ask our guide about the mysterious "Lady in Red" who supposedly haunts this property!
