If anyone else is getting in around 8:30pm on Thursday I'd be down to split a cab...


Sadly I'm coming in about an hour after you, at 9:20 (and at Midway), but I'm interested in hearing the easiest way to get to Regents from there.

I also just got my host info, so hopefully other folks did as well.

Yup. And of course the first thing you do is look at the glass Menagerie :)

So which ChiTown people are going to this TLS meetup? Someone suggested pub transport after the Chi thing is done.

does anyone have any suggestions re: parking... b/c there's not an airport close to me I'm stuck driving up, which means - i'll need to park

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Yeah, I'm down for it. Its about 9 bucks a person from the law school if you have a full cab, about a 25 minute ride. Google says it will take an hour by public transport but it would probably be cheaper. We could do a costs benefit analysis.

9 bucks a head vs. probably 2 or 3 for public transportation is a no brainer. i assume we'll all akwardly figure out who all the TLSers are at that opening reception and grab some cabs maybe from there?

Worst case, use priceline negotiator. I got 60 bucks a night downtown.

Just found out my host lives right next to Regents. I'd be up for a shared cab. That seems better than trying inebriated public transportation during my first time in Chicago.

9PM, O'Hare. If you haven't arranged alternate transport I'd be up for splitting a cab.

Only, I'm going to downtown.

Which class do you guys think you might sit in on? Nussbaum's sounds cool. I was thinking about going to Leiter's, but now it says it will not actually be a real class, just a lecture for the admits.

so much +

However, at least we won't be getting a false sense of good weather while we're there. It seems as if the lady is going to be herself. Gotta respect that.

Also, a friend has informed me that cover this Friday night at the Cubby Bear is $25. If it's anything like Michigan's ASW, we have to pay for it ourselves if we want to partake.

Just looked at the site, and that is indeed the case, it seems. That totally blows. I wonder if the school knows that...
