Snacks available at show. VERY EXPENSIVE! Instead, eat at a MB Financial Park restaurant after show and get parking validated. http://www.rosemont.com/thepark/

$15.00 parking in garage. Arrive early as getting into garage can take awhile. Plenty of parking. Eat at a Parkway Bank Park restaurant after show and get parking validated. Located opposite side of the garage from convention center. http://www.rosemont.com/thepark/

If you want to take your time or take another look at everything, it's better to take in your own water bottle and a sandwich. There is plenty of spaces to sit either while you are watching a dance or listening to a presentation.

Parking is expensive- $15. You have to pay at in the parking ramp lobby. Please note there are machines that take cash or credit and some that take only credit cards. At the time we left, the credit-only machines had very short lines.

Rosemont's MB Financial Park is on opposite side of garage. Good restaurants to choose from. Plus they'll validate your parking.

The MB Financial Park Entertainment District is on the other side of the parking lot from the convention center. Ask at restaurants about parking validation.
