The weather was Windy & Cold. I wore Sweater.
Arrive early to get good seating. There are some awkward spaces to sit with no tables and not so great views!
Doors do not open as they are advertised. It is a small theater seems like all the seats are good. We got there early just to stand in a really long line!
Take brown line to Sedgwick
We are usually taken to our seats and so you have no idea of where you will be seated. We ended right underneath the speakers and while we had an excellent view the incredibly loud volume during the transition between scenes made me wish I brought ear plugs. So look up when you get to your seat and ask for a different seat if you are next to the speakers. Some of you may not mind and that's ok too. Have fun.
Request center or left seating, away from piano up-front right, so you can hear comedians better.
The weather was nice out. Cool, autumn afternoon.. I wore You will want a coat & scarf for the theatre. It is cold inside the UP theatre..
we ate at OLD TOWN PUB just a couple of blocks south on Wells then split dessert at 2nd City
I wore summer clothes.
As always, SC seating is very intimate (read tight!) so you will get to know your neighbors.
The Second City's Game Night
While you could not tell that the, "seasoned fries" were seasoned with anything other than a little salt, the sweet potato fries were the best I'd ever had - crispy and lightly seasoned. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. The commemorative cup with unlimited refills of soft drinks were a great value.
The weather was spring.
Skits can get quite "blue" so really wouldn't bring anyone under 20. Keep your kids at home.
Dined at the local joint for ribs B/4. YUM!
You can order bar type food there or there are restaurants and bars in the area.
The weather was mild for december.. I wore Casual attire.
