A getaway sans kiddos...

Ideas? We don't drink. We love music. Especially Blues. I've never been but my husband has a time or two. To watch the Cards beat the Cubs;) We are from Missouri! Couldn't help it. No but seriously, we are excited to explore the city and all it has to offer. We may come back with the kids in the summer but for now it's about reconnecting as a couple and fun. We are thinking the beginning of April for our 7th Anniversary.

Stay somewhere sybaritic like the Waldorf Astoria, Four Season, Ritz Carlton, Park Hyatt, Peninsula... When you come back with the family you can opt for Homewood Suites or Embassy Suites. Have the concierge arrange a carriage ride to a special restaurant or Blues Club

Thank you, do you know of any Blues clubs? We are also considering Tampa, are you familiar with Tampa by chance?

It's not fair to make us compare Tampa to Chicago in early April! Our weather is still damp and chilly while the south is nice and warm. It all depends on what sort of vacation you want. From what you've written, I'd suggest visitingTampa in April and coming to Chicago during Blues Fest in early June.

Tampa and Chicago are different animals and don't compare. Sort of like comparing London with the Cote D'Azur.

PS MInda you posted your query re: Tampa here on the Chicago Forum. You might want to correct that and post on the Tamp forum.

Very nice place for dinner and music. Candlelight ambiance, no standing is allowed in the dinning area. I would strongly recommend this place.
