Hi, all! I'm heading to Chicago in the coming days to do some writeups for Tripatini. Any travel/tourism tips/contacts most appreciated!

Ah, that's right, thanks for the reminder, Ed; I'll contact Kristin Unger at Wagstaff, especially re the new Radisson Blu.
David the media rep for the city's tourism deparmtent is Emily Long at email@example.com or 312-742-0821. She can be very helpful, but first she asks media to fill out this form: http://www.explorechicago.org/city/en/special_pages/tourism_media_c....

Great, Margaret, thanks so much! One of my Tripatini partners and I will be arriving in town this coming Thursday around lunchtime. Your web site looks great - let me give it a closer look, see what ideas it sparks, and I'll email you by the end of the weekend. Looking forward to meeting you and John! best, Dave Appell
That's so fun! We just joined Tripatini like...2 days ago. This is really fun! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help or any questions I can answer. Even if you don't come on a tour I'm more than happy to fill you in or point you in directions.
Bedankt, Maarten, I will look into it!
There is so much to do in Chicago! I suggest checking out the Art Institute because they always have some amazing exhibits and the building is pretty cool. Millennium park is also a neat place to check, I also recommend going to a Cubs baseball game. Wrigley field is part of baseball history and Chicago has some of the best sports fans. Here is a good site for tours and planning http://www.visitchicagosouthland.com/?gclid=CNXCxt-IlbECFQtThwodmnLIdA. If you are looking for lodging you should check out http://bescover.com/inn-listing-5?field_physical_city_value=Chicago.... They a have the best bed and breakfasts nationwide, and it is another way to meets some locals.
