Psst that makes for a pretty sweet numerical palindrome.
Dust off something snazzy & don't forget to bring your dancing shoes.
There’s no parking lot for the venue. There is some street parking, though it’s a Friday night in one of the most popular nightlife areas in Chicago so it will be limited and hard to come by. Any street parking in front of the venue is metered until about 9pm and generally runs about $3/hour. Wood Street (just northwest of the venue - Wood runs north) has permit-free street parking as does the area right around the park. That said, we highly recommend taking the Metra or CTA if you are local instead of driving. After all, you’ll be toasting with us, and who wants to drive after a couple of drinks?
We’re going to be fancy, so you should be, too! You don’t need to buy a tux, but if you’ve got a fun dress or nice suit you don’t get the opportunity to wear often, here’s your chance to dust it off and take it for a night on the town.
Chicago is an awesome city, and there are all kinds of things to do. We suggest checking out a TimeOut Chicago magazine (can be bought at most pharmacies and bookstores) or Metromix where events for the weekend can be found.
If you’re at the Public Hotel, the Gold Coast has great shopping and easy access to the Magnificent Mile – Chicago’s shopping hotspot.
Wherever you prefer to stay, we advise you to book as early as possible. This is a very busy weekend with the NFL Draft and a large conference in town, and hotel rooms are already booking up.
We've set aside some rooms at the Public Hotel in the Gold Coast neighborhood, renowned for its shopping, architecture and nightlife. The standard room is offered at a rate of $235/night for the weekend of May 1st. If you'd like to reserve your room, please call 1-888-506-3471 and reference the Dilger-Deibel Wedding Block before March 18th to make sure you get this rate.
In the Wicker Park neighborhood (where the wedding will be) there are a few other options:
There are also other hotels in the city, if you’d prefer to stay elsewhere.
Everything we put on the registries are things we'll love and would give us a fun experience, but honestly, the most important gift you can bring us is having you and your dancing shoes at our celebration. We are pumped to spend our special day with you and are so grateful you’re in our lives!
