    Got your hotel yet?

    Just booked rooms for the KC game. Last year we stayed near the stadium, didn't tailgate (paid like $10/beer in cyclone tent), and drove home that night. It was nice being able to walk to the game from the hotel but that was about it.

    This year staying both Friday and Saturday night in the P&L district.


    Can't wait!

    Re: Got your hotel yet?

    Yup, booked at the same place I stayed downtown for the Big 12 BB tourney: Hotel Phillips. I got a deal on Priceline for $74 a night and know regularly it has been going for $99 a night. It's literally just blocks from the P&L District which is very nice! With no Chiefs home game to go to Sunday our Saturday night could be late in the P&L.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Yes. We booked again at the Drury Inn by the stadium right after the game last fall. Great trip, can't wait.

    Re: Got your hotel yet?

    Thinking about going the bus route with the Des Moines Cyclone Club like we did last year. Which reminds me, I got to get that sent in.

    Re: Got your hotel yet?

    I should probably talk to some people about making it a trip. I think the only way I get a couple of them is if we stay for the baseball game later.

    Re: Got your hotel yet?

    Not yet, but can't think of a reason why we wouldn't book downtown to be near P & L District for the Friday night party.

    Dude -- 2002 (or maybe your wife…for shopping?) called and they want to thank you for your hotel reservation.

    Cancel that bad boy and get downtown! Clone fans will be flooding the Power & Light District and you're going to want to be walking distance…aren't you?
