might have to be at later.

That's the Hancock? My wife says that's pretty nice.

I'd like to have a touch football game in Soldier Field with Mike
Ditka. Ditka versus Perl Mongers? (Ditka!)

Also, the backstage tour of the Lyric Opera is full of geeky goodness.
None of it has to do with computers though.

We could rent out Pizzeria Uno (or Due).

The Lincoln Park Zoo has a camel last I heard (although they had some
trouble with PETA over that).
