The Notre Dame weekend

For those of you who were lucky enough to get tickets, you may want to bookmark this blog from the Chicago Bruin Alumni Club. They have already put together a FAQ for the Notre Dame weekend, including these interesting details:

What events do you have planned?

Right now, we are looking at a variety of fun and exciting events for the weekend. These include:
- a night at the legendary Second City improv comedy club on Thursday night
- the famous Chicago River Architecture Cruise on Friday afternoon
- a rocking Pregame Party at Joe's BeBop Café on Navy Pier on Friday night
(just like Damon's in Birmingham, only better)
- and a Postgame Gathering downtown after the game.

Will you be arranging transportation to South Bend?

The club is indeed organizing roundtrip luxury motorcoach transportation due to the high demand. The estimated departure time will be 8 am from Navy Pier. Exact details and bus assignments will be coming soon.

How much will it cost?

We are negotiating with several bus companies. The seats (with champagne continental breakfast and snacks on the return) will not exceed $50, but we will not know the exact amount until a contract is signed.
Beer Bus! Seriously though, this sounds pretty rockin'. I was at Damons in Alabama with about a hundred other alums and Bruin fans from around the country. That was a great time. Wish I had gotten a ticket for this game even though I am a little leary about how the result will turn out. This sounds like a lot of fun.

Anyways, if you are going to ND via Chitown definitely a handy blog to bookmark. I may even buy this t-shirt from the Chicago UCLA alumni club:

By the way, speaking of this game, stay tuned this week. We are going to have something special probably around middle of this week. Have a great Sunday.
