244 Donald E. Stephens Convention Center Tips
Naturally, VERY expensive food & drinks - just got a bottle of water & it was $3.
Restrooms are always very clean-no long lines.
Sales floor thins out during stunt shows-easier to peruse the vendors then.
Venue food WAY too expensive-brown bag it.
$13 reasonable but can carpool to split the fee.
Comfortable shoes/be prepared to carry a swag bag-aisles between vendors are NARROW when crowded.
I park in a secret free spot!
They have an inexpensive coat check.
Paying for parking at the kiosk is always a pain
Pretty typical food and drink pricing for a show
You can park just 4 minutes North in the CTA station for just $5 up to 14 hrs
Leave your purse at home. Just pocket the essentials. You will be carrying plenty of literature.
Was unprepared for parking being on the opposite side of the street. Very confusing.
Bring a wheeled suitcase or shopping tote to carry all the literature and give-aways.
