Am I correct in reading the ALA shuttle bus schedule? We will not be able to get to and from this location because the shuttle will already be done for the evening?

Hi Sara (and anyone else interested)--it looks like you're right about the shuttle, but the Sheraton is easy to access by taxi and public transportation late into the night. Feel free to shoot me an email at kristin dot moo at gmail dot com if you need help finding your way on the CTA (Google Maps also has a public transit option that works really well for directions here).

Actually, according to the schedule the last shuttle from McCormick Place LEAVES at 8, which is when this event starts, so there will be a shuttle that will be able to get people to the Sheraton.
