PARKING:
DO NOT PARK IN THE HOTEL PARKING GARAGE. IT IS $64+

Use the app SpotHero to look for the best parking options downtown. Plan to pay $10-20. You can also park further away from downtown at a CTA stop, then ride the CTA. I *strongly* suggest to carpool and split the cost or to use public transit.

You can drop off your setup at the venue before parking to avoid carrying it.
