You can't get any better food than you can at Miller's Pub and Restaurant, just a couple blocks down, on Wabash, and they are open VERY late! No need to rush!

The event was (as usual) just incredible. The seating (per Goldstar) was very good for the price.

About the Ticket Supplier: Chicago Symphony Orchestra

The CSO is a musical force in Chicago and around the world with more than 150 performances and events a year, 107 talented musicians, two internationally renowned conductors, and two award-winning composers-in-residence.

The central mission of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association is to present classical music through the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to Chicago, national and international audiences.

The mission is supported by four mutually reinforcing elements: artistic excellence (continued international preeminence in the field of orchestral excellence), audience development (leading audience development initiatives), education (superior education and community programs) and financial stability (fiscal responsibility for long-term stability).

In November 2008, the CSO was ranked the best U.S. orchestra by Gramophone magazine.
