We can get *up to 30% off at that hotel but I haven't heard back from Kimpton.
It was also for 10-25 rooms, I don't know what discounts, if any, they offer for groups larger than that.

If it's emporium I have like $80 worth of game coins I can hand out (gf's friend's husband owns the place)

With Kimpton in Chicago, my goto is always the Palomar. Good vibes at that place.

Well, MBK and Story already booked Allegro, so I'll book there, too.
The hotels I was looking at originally were further up on the magnificent mile, but I don't what to be 6 or 7 blocks from everyone just so I can be closer to the Chanel boutique.

What's all this, then? A Chicago Fark party?

We'll see
 
2018-04-18 10:09:29 PM  
Wait, so it's not TFD only?  Pass.
 
2018-04-18 10:10:27 PM

I like Chicago.

If anyone in this thread is interested in getting a group rate at Hotel Allegro, will you please let me know if you would be interested in a room and if you want a single or a double occupancy?
I need to have this information for the hotel before they can quote me a rate.

Dammit. I'm running a triathlon in Lake Geneva at 7am the following morning.

Couldn't have picked a single worse day for me, sorry.

I think some of the TFD people are hanging out the night before, too.

Anyway, can we switch it up from Emporium? The area is cool and all, but we've both been there before and the place has kind of turned into a shiathole. We should mix it up a bit.

I'm picking up my Pulitzer at 8am the next day so... yeah, it's not going to work for me either, unfortunately.

For the first time in always I'm actually in town for this, and if it's at Emporium, that's stumbling distance from my house.  In case you are still looking for a venue, Logan Square has another barcade called Logan Hardware (that I actually like better). That said, there are a metric crapton of bars in my 'hood now, which span the gamut from divey old man bars to douchey trendoid hangouts so if this is where you want to do it, there's a ton of choices.

Kimpton Hotel Allegro just got back to me and is quoting me a group rate for rooms than is actually higher than booking an individual room  on their website.
Everyone's on their own.
 
2018-04-27 10:29:08 AM  
I'm in!!

Maybe I should stop in Eglin along the way?

Sorry, misspelled first time.
 
2018-04-27 04:09:35 PM  
Maybe I'll finally go to one of these.
 
2018-05-01 03:32:31 PM  
I'll be there most likely.
 
2018-05-01 04:20:05 PM  
Hmm...haven't been to Chicago for about 15 years. I was possibly planning a trip to Milwaukee but I might be able to swing this.
 
2018-05-01 04:29:51 PM  
I'm just getting back from vacation, but I'll be there.
 
2018-05-02 09:54:58 AM  
I can swing this. Lemme look at flights.
I am so hugging you MBK :D
 
2018-05-02 10:43:14 AM  
Flight booked! Thank you AA miles!

Similar to emporium and nearby, but potentially less crowded??? Never been on a weekend night so I can't vouch.... might need to do some reconsoaonce  loganarcade.com
