Nope. I've only ever been downtown twice. Once for the aquarium and once for dinner at Planet Hollywood.

Any soccer fans? Perhaps a Fire game, and hit a restaurant in Naperville.

Scratch that. Fire are at New England that weekend.

Dave & Buster's (on Clark & Oak) allows minors before 10 PM or so. I can call to find out for sure if anyone's interested. Also, there's an cover charge in the evenings, but not in the afternoons.

Daveandbusters.com

Goldcoast: N. Clark St. at Oak
(312) 943-5151
Hours of Operation
Sunday - Tuesday: 11:30 am - 12:00 am
Wednesday - Saturday: 11:30 am - 1:00 am

Guests under the age of 21 (legal drinking age) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (a person 25 years of age or older who agrees to be responsible for the conduct and safety of the underage guests). Our N. Bethesda and Philadelphia locations enforce a year-round 11 p.m. curfew for guests under the age of 21.
One parent or guardian can accompany up to a maximum of four underage guests.
Underage guests must remain with their parent or guardian. Our other guests appreciate this and our insurance carrier requires it.

Appropriate, clean attire required.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Also, ESPNZone

Lincoln Park Zoo - Free! Except for Parking for $10. You can look for street parking too.

List of Museums - I've always wanted to check out the Museum of Holography.

Any other ideas?

I also need an escort :) D&B's wouldn't be too bad I guess. The games there are horrendously expensive though so I'm not sure I'd be able to manage that. Lunch I could do :)

I'm from Chicago (Lake Zurich). D&B sounds cool. Dick's Last Resort is cool too, but somewhat $$$. I think I'd personally prefer the 17th, but the 18th isn't a biggie either.

I'm okay for May 17 or 18. Who wants the joyous fun of coordinating this event? I vote for busmaster11!

Hmmm...

I'm just quietly monitoring the input here I guess. It's still over a month away so it may be a good idea to just brood over this for another week or two.

Hey I'm in Palatine too. I thought I was the only one.
No wonder I'm always too late when it comes to hot deals at OM, OD, CC, BB, etc.
