I could not in good conscience encourage DC fans to come to Chicago where they would root against the Fires of Illinois. By this time, I think anyone who is coming has made plans so post here if you have any questions about staying in Chicago. It will be cold here so bring warm clothing. Please post any questions you have here about lodging food, blues bars, shopping or whatever. I will be at work on Sunday morning before heading to the game with the 18 month old so you can call me if you have any last minute questions. I can't invite anyone to stay with us for a couple of reasons: We have two daughters, 2 months and 18 months, and they have been up much of the night the last 30 days. Plus my wife has a trial on Monday morning and will too busy to have house visitors in the days leading up to it. I don't think anyone is missing anything because we live 20 miles north of Soldier Field in suburbia and it is not at all convenient for people who like to party. If the national team ever plays here (unlikely, but you never know), I can persuade my wife to have people stay and save some money.
