KoalaFace: maq0r: Can someone recommend me a good hotel?

I moved from venezuela to the US a few months ago and I'm sort of near Chicago (SE Iowa) so I might be able to attend, want to know Chicago so what better place to start than with a fark party?

umm...it's the middle of an oncology convention. Hotels are like $400 a night downtown...stay by the airport. I'd put you up at my hotel, but we're at $399.


Yikes!

Maybe I won't be going...

Ugh

Well, I can stay away from Downtown, and I prefer to use the subway/L over cabs. Any suggestions?

Chinatown. The hotel is small and cramped, but close to the red line and good food.

blueyd1: Can we please have another one sometime this summer, Buk?


We've been doing about 3/year the past couple of years. One winter/spring... one summer... one fall. Usually the fall has the best turnout with semi-nice weather and cheap hotels. Summer is tough because of all the conventions jacking up the prices downtown.

See you all there!

KoalaFace: but we're at $399.


so, it sounds like "someone's couch" or "flee to Gurnee or Merrillville" for me :)

I'm there for a conference. My hotel is full. But it wasn't that expensive.

Stay downtown. Any major hotel will be fine (Hilton, etc.) Lincoln Park is easy to get to by cab or bus.

 
2012-06-02 09:19:03 PM  
I'll be in Chicago then. Might show up.

How many hookers should I bring?

How many sluts?
 
2012-06-02 09:20:07 PM  

gameshowhost: Will there be nudity this time? The last one was disappointing.


I will be nude.

How scary is a FARK party for a liter who doesn't really chat people up in threads?

The worst part for you would be trying to get your login written on a "Hello my name is" badge.

Sounds like a good icebreaker...people trying to read the itsy bitsy words on the badge then me smacking them for looking at my chest. Carrot and stick, right?

Fedora: I'll believe it when it's on the calender


Ya mean people will be draining pasta?

Now that sounds like a party!
 
2012-06-02 10:52:59 PM  
I can maybe go, but I have no idea where I could stay (I'm in Iowa)
 
2012-06-02 10:56:05 PM  
I wish I was going to be in town for this...
 
2012-06-02 11:23:12 PM  

Bukharin: You can pay a la carte if you want, noone's stopping you.


Actually I did not know this. Having more than a couple drinks is usually problematic for me as I have to drive a long way home.
 
2012-06-02 11:30:47 PM  

Bukharin: AssAsInAssassin: /$30? Really?

You can pay a la carte if you want, noone's stopping you.
But people usually drink so much in 3 hrs that $30 is a deal.

I'd like to see him try!!!

/Not really... he'd prolly still kick my ass.

Why no fark parties in Las Vegas? I want to move to a fark party city. It's not fair to live in a city where no fark parties happen :(
 
2012-06-02 11:37:39 PM  
Will they have the fight?

I stayed at a 3-Star hotel downtown for $60 three weeks ago. I don't know if I can say the hotel name or the website I got if from directly, but here goes. William Shatner told me to book hotels at this website and the hotel was at the corner of Ontario and Rush. The room was $76 out the door.

The Hyatt Regency on Wacker, which really isn't on Wacker, has 2,019 rooms that are never fully used and there are tons of hotels downtown. Someone has rooms available for cheap on the Pricey Line type discount website.

Really? Can you play "Taps?" Or maybe you're more of a Satchmo kind of player?

Ha ha. Love it. Coincidentally, I just saw a sign yesterday that he is going to play a festival in a neighboring town in a couple of weeks.

If they have a room available, I HIGHLY recommend Gold Coast Guest House... cheaper than a hotel downtown might run you, fantastic location, free continental breakfast. The lady who runs it is super nice.

If not, I also recently discovered this website http://www.airbnb.com/
... if you're comfortable renting someone's spare room.

I don't mind at all being away from DT as long as I have access to the L
 
2012-06-04 05:53:17 AM  
Wow. It's such a wonder I even saw this announcement that I might just have to go.

Not sure if serious, but: clicky clicky to see what you missed in Vegas
 
2012-06-07 12:01:56 AM  
so hotels downtown this weekend in Chicago are gonna be absurd. Fine. How about, say, Gurnee? 'cause weather permitting I might hit Six Flags on Sunday
 
2012-06-07 12:51:54 AM  
I'm in town now. Will be until early Sunday. Let me k ow if you want a happy hour drink. Otherwise will see you at the party.

Of course you do this on a date when I am doing a foodie thing in Wisconsin.

brap: Fly me out I'm bored and restless.


Oh c'mon, it's only a 13.5 hour drive down I-80.

Is car rental out of the questionl? Because I can have an obscure dying great-aunt like it's nobody's business.

Can't make it.

Some day, when I'm not feeling so old

My life and Lake Shore Drive are double biatches.
 
2012-06-08 11:31:56 PM  
Oh hell, according to Google, it will take me an hour and 15 minutes to get there from my house ... if I walked. Which means I'll mostly likely stop by as it is pretty close by.
 
2012-06-09 12:19:00 AM  
I have to work.....One day I will grow a set and maybe show my face. And then next time show my face and them introduce myself. Maybe.

BrunelloBabe: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Hidden Shamrock? I always figured Farkers were more of a dirty-Durkin's crowd...

Durkin's was really close to my first place, but I've always been a Yak-Zie's Diversey girl.


You love Yak-Zee's.

I dare you to ask me to follow up with more information.

(it involves a hedge and a text that says "i just woke up please god tell me this is your apartment")
