Subject: Chicago/NYE update
Another rung ascended on the ladder towards "7th Heavan in '97", as Lion Keezer has so aptly named his incredible WWW page, dedicated to the soon-to-be event, upcoming in Chicago on 12/31/96!
I have found the WAY COOL post-show gathering spot! Within walking distance of The Park West is a "beguilingly dim & cozy, subterranean jazz" place called The Bulls. They've been in business for 32 years. They would love to have us continue the NYE party there, and will be serving up real food and live jazz! They'll be open until 4 AM that night. There would be a cover charge involved, as they are paying musicians, kitchen staff, bartenders, etc. and the amount $10 was tossed out. Anyone care to join me for an Italian Beef on French with extra peppers?
PS. Still working on a pre-show dinner thing. 16 of the 25 rooms blocked at Days Inn were sold, as of this morning.

Subject: Dinner, Pre-NYE show
Finally! The pre-show dinner spot has been secured. It is in the same location as Topo Gigio's (in the Days Inn building), but under a new name and management. Travia's is an Italian restaurant and I mentioned 5:30 as a start time, for those of you wishing to jump on line at the PW early. It was suggested that a limited menu (3-5 entree choices) would make for easier ordering and better service. Any thoughts, reservations?
PS. In the interest of organization, please let me know of your individual plans, ie. hotel, dinner, show and/or post-show gathering as you decide, by email. Thanks.
