Arrive early and parking is expensive. If you use spothero.com for discounted parking and use their code "z0no8b" to get $5 off. It will help a lot. You can find and book a parking spot from your desktop or mobile device, get up to 50% off and some parking spots you can use your mobile phone to park instead of printing out the reservation.

Please, for the love of the arts, DO NOT RUSTLE YOUR FOOD WRAPPERS during the performance. It's so disruptive. A live show is not the same as a movie, so please be mindful of how your actions impact the experience of others.

The Q's walked a few blocks and ate at Petterino's. They are very popular. Make a reservation especially before/or after going to the Theater.

We ate at Atwood and took advantage of their valet parking. It is a consistently excellent restaurant and the parking rocks.

Parked on the next block in the parking garage. For roughly 3-3 1/2 hours cost was $37. I'm sure there's cheaper parking elsewhere. But if it's really cold and windy this might be your best spot. Note large amounts of people will be exiting at one time. So there will be lines to pay for the parking as well as get out of the garage.

The weather was cold (like 5 degrees). I wore a dress. My date wore a sweater with dress pants. Note- that even tho you are in the lobby (if it's cold out) the lobby will still be cold due to all the doors (the workers checking tickets and selling souvenirs were wearing jackets/gloves). Dress was a little more dressy-casual. Didn't see many (if any) people in jeans. Mostly dress pants and sweaters. .

I took Metra to Union Station. If you have to buy a return ticket, buy it before you leave the station so you don't have to rush to buy it when you're trying to make the return trip. You can take the 157 or 124 bus,, which will drop you off in the vicinity of the Cadillac Palace Theatre. Watch carefully for Randolph or State Street, depending on where the bus is going. Once you get the swing of public transportation, it's much easier than driving.

I had a wine before the play and it was reasonable priced.There is a Starbucks cafe two doors away from Theater, A Cosi one block away with good sandwich options.
