west loop, the new hyatt over there, looks like i'd have to swap to green
what green line stop?
looks like Lake St is where I transfer then get off at Morgan
I’d take the train, that cab will probably cost at least $50, and I’ve never driven from ohare that early on a Saturday but pretty often a cab barely saves you anytime over the train anyways
Taxi will save you maybe 10-15 min if traffic is good.
I’d take the blue line to lake, then. Uber to the hotel
You aren't going to want to take a taxi during rush hour
y'all have saturday rush hour?
also this thread is friendly and efficient with information, props
i moved back my brunch reservation half an hour just in case
in plane nerd info MSP-ORD Delta using an A321 seems like overkill but i'll take my personal tv screen
There won’t be much, if any, traffic at 820 am on a Saturday. Cab will still be expensive though. Can probably Uber for $30-40.
At 8:20AM on Saturday traffic should be light, so in theory uber would be fine. Check google maps before making your decision unless $$'s mater that much then take the train, its fine
Have you seen Lyrtch ’s itinerary? Money doesn’t mean a thing.
i'm not just wanting to waste money for mild convenience benefits sir
*spends $200 on dinner*
*walks twelve blocks instead of taking a $10 uber*
How much shit are you bringing? The Milwaukee and Grand stop is borderline walking distance to the Hyatt House West Loop. Plus you can scout out all the spots on your walk.
Or you can just Uber/Lyft from there. No need to go all the way into the Loop to Lake if you don't have to.
this is what i pay you all for, if weather isn't trash definitely going to do Milwaukee/Grand stop
staying at the Hoxton for the rest of the days so imagine that's how we'll get back to ORD
You doing brunch at Cabra Sunday?
nah have a roister reservation and contemplated how awful it'd be to show up at au cheval when it opens to see how bad it is
not taking advantage of that hotels restaurants really, will likely try to get drinks/empandas at Cabra at some random hour and hit Lazy Bird same
just get the ventra card right? the google pay functionality seems questionable on whether I'd get transfer discounts
Not overkill actually. That flight is always packed if not full. Delta only runs 6 destinations out of ORD so you essentially have to make a connection through a hub (ATL, MSP, CVG, SLC, etc)
You won't get transfers via Google Play
the info on this is crazy mixed, it seems that Ventra says they track your CC # to calculate transfers etc
"When using a digital wallet to pay, you’ll be charged a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) fare when you board. Transfers are now available between services when using contactless PAYG and are charged at the same rate as when using a Ventra Card. If using a Pay app, be sure to have the app use the same funding source every time you tap to make sure you get the best fare. "
Wow. Had no idea that changed.
not 100% convinced due to the mixed responses on reddit regarding it but seems to be the case if you trust ventra
be real nice to not have to fuck with anything but just using my phone for transit
Monday at 10AM is the best time to hit up Cheval tbh. I presume that’s not an option though. Maybe Wednesday at 10 before you fly out.
FWIW they made a change to the Ventra system a few months ago, and I’ve consistently gotten my ApplePay transfers charged appropriately since. It was hit or miss before then.
This damn alligator is captivating the city. It's like panda watch on Anchorman
Wonder which elected official is shaking them down
I've got four hours before I can get into my AirBnB and will have my carry on with me. Where should I go?
where are you?
Just landed at O'Hare
Are you the one that has the bnb in the Gold Coast?
On North Milwaukee avenue, wherever that is
North Milwaukee and old town
Milwaukee and what? Probably in wicker.
Go to Big Star on Damen and chill on the patio. Eat some amazing tacos/ beer.
What’s the address? Milwaukee doesn’t go through Old Town
1478 North Milwaukee Avenue Floor 2, Chicago, IL 60622, United States
I'm also a big fan of Paradise Park right there on North. It's a great outdoor drinking spot on a day like today.
Yeah go to big star. It’s a 10 min walk, if that from your place.
Paradise Park is good too.
Just take the Blue Line down to Damen. There's all sorts of shit to do right there, including Big Star and Paradise Park. Piece Brewery right next to Paradise Park is also dope.
If you’re w a group - Piece is a good dinner spot. Great pizza and beer. It’s not Chicago style tho, if you’re looking for that.
I’m buds w the owner. Great place.
I flag places on google maps as "want to go" when i'm getting ready to travel somewhere
nearest place to that location was Piece Brewing.
i'm basically a chicago expert
although Big Star is a Paul Kahan joint so its the move
now I want Mexican
Today would be a glorious day for Big Star
Big Star was a good call. I'll be at the bar for whoever wants a free beer.
Hot AF today. Hope our visitors are staying hydrated.
We all can rest easy . Chance the Snapper has been captured.. The city is safe from our reptilian overlord
We will be in Chicago this weekend, first time. Dinner reservations at Gibson's Steakhouse, NoMi, & RPM Italian. Any of those a mistake?
Will be staying on magnificent mile (is it frowned upon by locals calling it that?). Thursday we will be getting there very early and have a lot of time to kill until dinner. Mainly want to know a place in that area that will have good bloody marys & brunch/lunch? Probably going to art institute but what else should we do? Navy pier? Also most of Friday during the day is free. Nights we already have covered.
I know thread is only 9 pages long but I'm p busy today and tomorrow. TIA
also Uber or Lyft in your fine city?
1. River walk is pretty awesome, although will be really crowded during the weekend. If you wanted to hit up the Art Institute and aren't afraid of walking, doing the river walk to Maggie Daley Park to Millennium/Grant Park is something that I legit love doing and do almost every weekend during the summer (never gets old)
2. I always suggest Cindy's as a place to stop by for a drink, especially if you can sneak in early on a weekday afternoon when it's not crowded. Great view of the lake/parks.
3. Fulton Market/West Loop is another neighborhood that I'm a big fan of walking through. You won't be able to walk over there from Mag Mile, but there's some great restaurants and just good vibes over there during the summer. A bunch of places have rooftop patios in that area - I suggest Aba.
4. Cafecito is a great lunch spot right off of the north end of Mag Mile. Not sure on the alcohol situation, although I know they do serve beer/booze.
