I've reserved my ticket, but like everyone else I have all sorts of questions.
Mainly though I'd like to find a quite, non-tourist bar near Grant Park where I can drink and watch the news without much of a hassle before going over to get in line. Something inside the Loop and divey would be great.
I just received the following from the DNC: "Ticket holders should walk towards Grant Park on Congress Parkway, then walk south on Columbus Drive to the site." So, somewhere near that would be good.
Also, any advice on when I should get in line? Or if ticket holders will be ushered in?
I'll be checking this thread between now and late Tuesday and updating it with details as I find them. Thanks for any and all advice.
Bonus points if any Chicago Me-Fi's want to join.
