Notes about Chicago and Food

Hyde Park and Chicago

The University of Chicago has recently updated the maps and directions on the web. Please visit the University's map page for maps, driving directions and parking instructions. The Ramada Inn is located in the northeast part of Hyde Park and is good 20-30 min walk (aprox 2 miles) from campus. The hotel should provide a shuttle in the morning. Chicago and Hyde Park are both filled with many cultural and culinary treats, a good resource for Chicago information is the web page for the American Astronomical Society meeting that will be held in early June; see specifically the page on things to do in Chicago. Also, please be advised that Chicago and Hyde Park are both urban settings and one should exercise due caution at all times (e.g., never leave luggage visible in a car).

Food Note

The Chauatauqua program does not provide for participant meals, so you will be responsible for your own meals. However, some arrangements have been made. Coffee will be provided each day. There will be a reception at Adler Planetarium on Monday night with a cash bar and appetizers, but not a full dinner. Also, in conjunction with the trip to Fermi Laboratory on Tuesday a dinner has been scheduled at Chez Leon, at a cost of $30/person.
