If you're unfamiliar with the area, please allow plenty of time to find your way.

What about parking?

Just south of the Norris Center is the Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, which has an attached parking lot. Parking there is free on the weekends after 4 p.m. There are other campus lots where you can park if this lot is full.

Check the Northwestern University parking web page for more information and a campus map with marked parking areas.

I'm traveling from out of town to attend B-Fest. Can you recommend some hotels or local restaurants?

While we can't recommend specific hotels because we haven't tried them ourselves, Yahoo Maps does have a list of nearby hotels that you can check. There are a number of restaurants in the area as well.

(If you drive in or rent a car during your stay, the webmaster can particularly recommend Superdawg, about ten miles from the University, as a junk-food favorite. Say hi to Maurie and Flaurie while you're there.)
