Attire – Cocktail party but weather appropriate.  Meaning, if you want to wear your cute party dress or cool new shirt – fantastic. But if it’s rainy cold and you can’t imagine changing out of flannel-lined jeans and a wooly sweater, that’s fine with us! Just no snuggies, please. Ditch boots at the door – the drinks and conversation will warm you right up!

Parking Discount – A real $4 deal!!  We arranged a big discount at Mart Parc Wells Self Park, closest garage to the event. Enter garage from either Wells Street or Kinzie, 1/2 block north of DIRTT, and be sure to bring your ticket with you to the party. Before you leave our party we’ll sticker it so when you return to the garage your fee is reduced to $4.00. No driving around the neighborhood or special reservation required. Because ISC loves our friends.

Public Transit – Easy! Event is right across the street from southeast doors of Merchandise Mart. CTA brown line stops on 2nd level of the Mart. (Tip – there is no down escalator in the Mart; use stairs next to ATMs outside CTA turnstiles.) Or, the #156 LaSalle bus stops one block east at 320 LaSalle. Follow the narrow sidewalk on the north side of the building west toward Wells, then turn left. For other options, check TransitChicago.

Dinner before? – If you want a special dinner before the party, there are lots of great restaurants in the River North area. Nearby options include: River Roast or Chicago Cut Steakhouse on LaSalle; or Kinzie Chop House, Moe’s Cantina, Highline, or Old Crow Smokehouse on Kinzie  For many more options, and reservations, try here. Check back; we’ll see if we can find you any deals.

This is a 21+ event.

Handicap accessible – Yes, DIRTT  is accessible.

Printed tickets – Don’t print out tickets; it wastes paper. Provide your name, and guest name(s), with your ticket purchase and we’ll have a complete list at the door.
