    I called the venue around 4pm today and they said it was still on.

    I asked about parking and as of 4pm there was still more than 2 inches of snow around on the streets so the snow parking restriction was still in effect. Of course they were expecting this to be resolved by tomorrow night, but be prepared if it is not.

    Most metra trains are running normal except 4 lines, so if you are planning on Metra keep an eye out.

    I'm hoping to drive down and park in the loop and cab over as well. Hopefully the parking garages are open. Many businesses are still going to be closed. CPS is closing schools again too.

    did they confirm that Gamma Ray would be there?

    also I like the cab idea...where is a good place to park?

    Oi, this sounds like it could be a mess!!!

    modernwizardry - I got your messages. I will let you know what I decide.
    I don't know yet if I go if I will be heading from work or from home, which is in Lombard.
    I think coming out by you would place me going south though.

    Yuck. Yes you do. I think I had Uno's once when I was in Florida and once here, and I never will again. Just found it sort of disgusting, but I don't remember why.

    Finally finished all my shoveling. To get rid of this much snow with just a shovel and no snowblower really, REALLY sucks! Tomorrow I'll probably be a lazy ass and sleep in and take it easy, so I can rest up for the concert. I sure hope it goes on. I most definitely will be doing Metra as usual.

    Yeah theres no way I can get there as I walk to the train and its 8 blocks through sidestreets. Just not worth the hassle and the fact that its going to be in the negatives. Have fun.

    asides from calling the club you also may want to check out MPShows twitter account. They seem to update often so if there is issues today with the show they may post something before coming all the way to the city. Hopefully I will see most of you there tonight.

    I heard in Wisconsin, Coke II just came out!
    Don't worry, the hype dies down quick my friend! :p

    Yeah, Gino's is good, so I will not argue anyone who prefers it to Lou's.
    Just for me personally, Lou's is godly.

    Well, I took the 88 and the 294 into work today, and both were very clear.
    I do feel a lot better about it, after being on the roads this morning.

    I did hear though that O'Hare has canceled 1,000 flights for today.
    I am not sure if that basically means it's a wash of yesterday's 1,000 cancelations.

    What I do worry though is that while the show itself might go on, Gamma Ray may not make it.

    I miss original pre 1985/84 Coke. Liked seeing the Coke II exhibit when I was in Atlanta.

    This is my worry as well, and it is also why I probably won't be leaving until about 7.

    Never had either, so no. Though, my dad for some reason loved Crystal Pepsi.

    They've never banned them so I'm thinking yes.

    I might call you later Simon.
    If I go, I will be leaving from Lombard.
    I was thinking about heading out around 6:30ish.

    Hmmm, are you sure?
    Or just confirmation that the show itself will go on?
