It was quite fun. It was a lot of just letting people bitch and vent, but I knew it was going to be a shitshow from the start when I saw the design of the event. They thought certain things would be more exciting to their audience, when in reality they just wanted to play the game. And everyone knows Grant Park never gets service no matter how much you add bandwidth. This was true. Nobody got angry at me, specifically, and it was nice meeting people that travelled all over just for this. Just tried to get people excited about the grand city of Chicago. Successful on that end!

I was originally supposed to be at info tent, and that would've been horrible. I got assigned to be in the field instead.

I'll be in Chicago for a conference next month, and because of my flight plans I have to check out of my hotel the morning of Oct 15 but have that whole Sunday to do something in the city (while lugging around a backpack and suitcase) before my flight home!

If anyone has ideas of how I can spend my time while not absolutely killing my back+suitcase wheels, let me know, because I'm not too eager to just sit in a United economy terminal for like 12+ hours.

Luckily for you, all the CTA trains are luggage accommodating. If you've got a few hours, there's plenty to do. What sort of thing would be your pace?

Also, a lot of hotels will hold your luggage for you even after you check out. If you have that long before your flight it would likely be worth the backtracking.

Where is your hotel and where do you want to go? I would gladly allow you to store luggage at my apt, but I live very far north so that would probably be inconvenient for you if you're staying downtown which seems most likely.

I'll be at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center - so actually a bit removed from the city itself.

I'll definitely call up the hotel and ask if them holding my luggage is an option, since if I go into Chicago I'd have to backtrack in the direction of O'Hare anyway (and thanks for the offer Shea - I'll let you know if I'm in need, but if the hotel agrees they operate an airport shuttle anyway so it should all be good). Still no concrete ideas on what to do because everyone else I'm going with was able to find an early flight, but I'm checking out theatre options and looking at just general sightseeing possibilities.

I'll be in Chi-town for the 2018 Cold Wave festival, probably end of September? Dates haven't been released yet. Kinda pissed I missed 2017 but I already saw KMFDM a few years ago and Stabbing Westward last year so I'll live. Maybe I'll get lucky and Gravity Kills / VNV Nation get booked.

Anyway keep an eye out for your favorite Jiffy near the end of September, probably.

If anyone would like to put me up for the weekend I will provide you with a ticket to the festival, a good amount of alcohol, and my lovely shining presence.

I may be in Chicago sometime in April with potentially a few hours to spend. Anyone up for lunch or have any ideas of cool things accessible by public transport to do?

Would depend which airport/train station/etc you'd be in, and what day of the week. Do you know those details yet? PM if you'd rather not post.

If you have a few hours we could go rock climbing at First Ascent. Also if anyone in Chicago wants to join sometime, let me know! I go pretty much every Saturday.

Note: None of the airports are in Chicago. So if you have a layover at midway or Ohare you're probably SOL since its going to take you about 30-45 minutes to get into chicago via transit to begin with.
