Parking is $15, cash only, and right next to the theater under the EL tracks. We arrived before the attendant, so we parked and went to dinner, then paid on our way back.

Prost is just past the tracks on the same side of the street. Good German pub type food and good service. Get the pretzel with beer cheese!

They sell drinks in the lobby, which you can take in the theater, but it's cash only, so hit the ATM before you go.

Try one of the restaurants recommended on the web site. Wine and Tine gives a 15% discount. Make a 6 pm reservation and have a relaxing meal ahead of time. Theater bar is CASH only.

The parking lot is right next to the theater. it is TINY and under the "L". You will miss it if you aren't looking. It costs $15. Make sure to get there early. It is a very small venue.
