There are a few restaurants nearby, I saw Al's Italian Beef, Culver's and Joy Yee's as we were coming in. You can bring a gallon size ziploc with snacks and up to a gallon of water in a sealed bottle (which they then take the cap from). What's to stop you from bringing a spare cap?
Love this concert arena and have been here a number of times over the years. Was able to make it from the city in 45 minutes which is comparable for other venues in the burbs like Allstate Arena. (Can be longer with traffic.) Plenty of parking (free) and reasonably priced concerts with big names. Love the open air venue with covered seats (and option to sit on the grass further out), excepting when it rains, so dress for the weather. Casual is fine. Crowd management for exiting parking and bathrooms excellent. Three lanes takes you back out to the main road and right back out to the expressway. And the traffic people know what they're doing unlike other places (Soldier Field, terrible!!!) Lines are incredibly long for the women's bathrooms but they move quickly! There are women in the bathrooms directing you to the empty numbered stalls that indicate vacant or in use (I think there were about 50 stalls for the line I was in and there is a second line for an adjacent bathroom which I'm sure had just as many stalls.) Don't let the location stop you from attending here. One of my favs.
The weather was very humid. . I wore a light top and shorts with flip-flop..
Drink and eat before u go to midwest ampitheater!! Super pricey!!
