I'm having a lovely panic attack right now, just reading about it. Oh, yes - we'll be easy to spot. I'll be perspiring!

Our office practices "casual Friday," so if I'm coming directly from work I'll be wearing jeans.

Yes, you can count me as probable, Ive upgraded myself to a 65%. If I dont show up just look for the girl dressed for a masquerade :-) It may be me.
I dont have anything confirmed as of yet but Im working on it.

Every day is casual day for me. If jeans don't work, I'll have to do some major shopping. The few dress things I own don't fit anymore.

Scratch the shopping. I've found that most places are happy to take my money no matter what I'm wearing.

Here is a list organized *roughly* by the areas of downtown Chicago that would be most feasible for attendees to stay in (contains no price clues though, beyond spotting the identifiable economy ones). Disclaimers: this probably isn't all of the feasible ones; and some may not still be there or have changed names. But if so, the new name for it is probably listed too. Also may be repeats, like if the location is somewhere that kinda could fit in two categories. Maybe this will help at least, if you Google them or as a reference while you use the hotel sites to see how much they are and get contact info (not all of these are listed on each of the major hotel sites).

For my purposes here I picked "Convenience Ground Zero" to be the heart of the Mag Mile, around Water Tower Place or the river at Wacker. You couldn't go very wrong with any of the following. Loop ones would be farthest away (well, closest of all if Millenium Park was Ground Zero!), but none are bad. About 15 min. walk, or a quick, few buck cab ride (also there are bus stops every block, for buses that go straight up and down Mich Ave all day and night). Best zip codes to stick within are 60611, 60610, and maybe 60605. A suggestion would be, when you find something you think is suitable, pull up a Yahoo or other online map and enter the address of it. You should be able to get a good idea how far away from ground zero it is. Between about 400 N. and 900 N., and within about 6 blocks east or west of N. Michigan, is probably a decent guideline.

GOLD COAST (Ranges from 5 to 10 min walk to Mag Mile):
Ambassador West Hotel / Omni Ambassador East Hotel / The Talbott Hotel / Claridge Hotel / Sutton Place / Hotel Sofitel / Tremont / Seneca

On or almost on MAG MILE:
Four Seasons Hotel / Hotel Inter-Continental / The Westin, N. Michigan Avenue / Marriott Courtyard, Ontario St./ The Drake / Hotel 71 / Lenox Suites / Club Quarters, E. Wacker / WhiteHall / Fitzpatrick / Park Hyatt / Omni Mich Ave / Marriott, N. Mich Ave / Hyatt, Wacker St. / Le Meridien

STREETERVILLE (next closest to Mag Mile):
Doubletree Guest Suites, Delaware Place / Holiday Inn Chicago City Centre, E. Ohio St. / Radisson Hotel & Suites / Millenium Knickerbocker Hotel / Sheraton Hotel & Towers, N. Water St. / Wyndham, St. Clair St. / Residence Inn Marriott, Walton St. / W Hotel, N. Lake Shore / Comfort Inn, Ohio St. / Embassy Suites, N. Columbus St.

RIVER NORTH (varies! Most from 5 to 15 min walk):
Best Western River North, Ohio St. / Cass Hotel / Embassy Suites, N. State St. / Holiday Inn Chicago Mart, N. Orleans / Howard Johnson Inn / Ohio House Motel / The Westin River North, Dearborn St. / Red Roof / Homewood Suites / Raphael / Hampton Inn / Amalfi / House of Blues Loews hotel / Renaissance / Hard Rock Hotel / Hilton Garden, Grand St. / Courtyard Marriott, Hubbard St. /

LOOP (most approx. 15 min. walk):
Hotel Allegro / Hotel Burnham / Crowne Plaza Hotel / Executive Plaza Hotel / The Fairmont Hotel / Monaco Hotel / The Palmer House Hilton / Renaissance Hotel / Swiss˘tel Chicago / W Chicago City Center Hotel, Adams St. / Oakwood at North Harbor Tower / Club Quarters, Adams St. / Congress Hotel / (Hyatt Regency McCormick Place is probably too far)

Hello! I would love to join all of you! But I can only come for one day, so which one would be better? I don't know the plans, so could you please babble mail the info? I told my DH and he said he and the kids could visit the museams while I do this but we need to be done in order to get on the last South Shore train to South Bend, IN. Can anyone help! Thanks!

I was thinking I might be able to spend the night if I could find a room mate to share the costs of the hotel room. Our hot water heater just went out and it was over $500 bucks to fix, so I am running short on cash. Anybody? I promise, I am mostly normal, lol I only do bizare things in my sleep! just kidding! lol really!

Ouch, guess I haven't reached that mythical state of completeness yet, I had another spasm that forced me to post hostel info.

These of course aren't as convenient as the hotels mentioned. Found awhile ago, don't know if the info is current. But there are lots of details available on the web. (FYI Happyflower, these can be shared, but don't know if you have to provide your own roommate, or if you're comfortable letting them provide one if they will). The lines looked like they might run together in this post, in case something seems to be missing.

Yep. He was full of cautions, but simultaneously approved.

I'm guessing that if you come during the day, the day of the 4th would be best. The activities on the 3rd will be in the evening.

the words for those things cheerleaders shake? The things they hold in their hands? The things with long paper streamers?

Oh drat. I don't want to be vulgar by saying their name.

> C'mon Spoc. We're not scary. In fact, we're all scared!

Oh heck, put me on the Yes list. I'm sure at least one thing will work out. And I am thinking Friday could indeed be it. Nah, you kids aren't scary. I have only held out because for some strange reason I can barely commit to even my fa-vo-rite activities in the whole world if it's firm and in advance (boy, would my friends and family back that up! I'm surprised they still are my friends and family). Get anxious after I do, NOT about possibly not wanting to go but because I spontaneously and unexpectedly wake up feeling physically crummy not infrequently.

Ok, enough of that, let's par-TAY. Keep in mind, though not many here have had the indescribable pleasure of experiencing it, despite my compulsion to post reams of dry data at times I AM a hoot. Well, I ain't anything conjured by "spoc," anyway. ;-)

Speaking of names Dinah, at least you have a normal human one for people to call you by during the party! But I do enjoy the thought of these other names being yelled out to get each other's attention in loud public places.

I'll be driving in Friday after working in the morning, so I'll try my best to not get lost or get stuck in too much traffic in order to make it to the restaraunt.
