Take the Metra. There are shuttle buses from station to Ravinia. Dining options are plentiful but Maribel and Parkview require reservations.

I made the mistake of getting a prepared Greek salad from the Ravinia Market. This "Greek" salad had a total of 2 olives, and about a teaspoon of tiny feta cheese crumbles. It had no peppers. But it had gobs of chickpeas - a cup of them. The offerings at the Market are overpriced in the first place, compared to what you can get from, say, Mariano's, but the salad itself was not worth half the price. When I told the manager, his reaction was "I'll tell the staff" and "is there anything else we can do for you?" Well, the answer to that second question is "no, not now or ever."

The draw was Yo-Yo, who was great in the one number in which he soloed, but I will definitely keep my eye out for "The Knights". Their lack of orchestral stiffness was refrershing and they were fun to watch and hear.

Yo Yo is such a great musician and a generally nice person. He even sat in with the Knights on the last number played. The Knights are a young group of fine musicians that really like each other.
