    I'll never forget the first time I listened to a concert in Chicago's Orchestra Hall. It was Andre Segovia, the incomparable Spanish guitarist, and the hall lived up to its billing as an acoustical marvel, the finest complex of its kind this side of Salt Lake City's Mormon Tabernacle. Located at 220 South Michigan Avenue, Orchestra Hall was built in 1904. Designed by renowned Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, the elegant 2,522-seat venue was earmarked as a home for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which had previously performed in the larger Auditorium Theater. Today, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is universally regarded as one of the premier symphony orchestras in the world and Orchestra Hall is part of a music complex that also includes Buntrock Hall, a rehearsal and performance space, Grainger Ballroom and Opus restaurant and cafe. From 1907 to 1996, the ninth-floor penthouse served as the home of the Cliff Dwellers Club. Aside from musical concerts and piano recitals, the hall also has hosted lectures by such notables as Harry Houdini, Amelia Earhart, Bertrand Russell and Orson Welles. Season tickets are as cherished as as hard to obtain as the Cubs, Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks. Orchestra Hall was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1994.

    I have heard about The Blue Man Group since I was a kid. I didn’t really know what they did or if it was good. I honestly never gave it much thought. We were taking our teen twin girls to Vegas and already had a comedy show and Ká that we were going to see. I wanted to add one more show that would be fun. I decided to give Blue Man Group a try, I mean it’s been around for decades so it has to be good, right? I was wrong it was amazing, funny, special and unique. I loved every minute of it and laughed so much. I highly recommend it to everyone and especially if you’ve been like me and on the fence since you don’t know exactly what it’s about. Even now I can’t explain it fully but I loved it.

    My aunt attended seminary in Chicago around 2000 and was active in the Cathedral. So while my wife was shopping on the Magnificent Mile, I walk over two blocks to visit this church. It was a beautiful church both interior and exterior. Aside from the stained glass, the interior, especially the coloring, is very different than most Episcopal churches. The exterior is more traditional stone church. I was simply glad it was open to take a look and say a prayer. I love visiting churches because they small detail differences say so much about a community. It was a beautiful downtown church.

    Was here to see Cory Wong, and wow what a great show! Great venue, cool vibe all the way around. Everyone inside and out from the front door to the coat check, to the bar staff, to the ticket takers knowledgeable and friendly. The venue has great acoustics. No lost vocals, or bottom end. Plenty of places to park and eat nearby. Easy to get to and from the expressway. Thanks for a great night!

    We went to the Metro for the 1st time in May 2022. Tickets were either 'General Admission' or 'VIP'. (Not all shows have these options.) We thought General Admission meant 'pick your own seat'...WRONG! It meant standing in front of the stage. VIP meant you got to go to the balcony and there is seating there. If this explanation is on their website, we did not see it. So now you know. The facility is old but that does not mean there is anything wrong with it. People working there were fine, no issues. We did enjoy the show, it is a very hip place for the younger set.
