Transport 30 people in Chicago half a mile

I need to transport about 30 people half a mile in downtown Chicago very cheaply. It seems like the cheapest thing to do is just get 10 cabs since it's expensive to hire a bus or party-van-thing for one short trip. I was wondering if anyone had any different suggestions or have tried to orchestrate something similar.

Can you put me in touch with this man?

The post about Chicago bars got me to thinking about a 4 o'clock bar I spent some time in, and, more specifically, about the bartender who worked in that bar.

Dress me up in Chicago!

Need to buy a fancy evening dress. Don't want to buy a basic LBD, and want mini or knee length - not full length. Prefer a little funkier perhaps. Any suggestions where? The boutiques I frequent don't do a lot of fancy dresses, so I'm lost. Of course there are the dept stores but would love to avoid if possible.
