I probably will just meet everyone at Mitsuwa, as I am planning to stop at Chinatown first and everything. So someone (probably you kim.) will be randomly glomped by me.

I will more than likely go on the bus... which going on the bus, are we going as a group on the bus as well? :D?

Also, will there be shifts in leaving? I know I won't want to be there too late and a lot of us will probably go to the ACen meet and greet right? =D?

Oo, I didn't see this thread before! I think I will join in on this, I've never been there but that place sounds awesome! Since I really REALLY hate to park and repark in Rosemont, I'll just leave my car there and bus it. I'm planning on being back for the 9 pm meetup, as well as to get my badge :D

For those a little unsure of the bus, just stick with me. I know my way around transit, plus being the neurotic I am, I shall have copies of the bus timetables on me. :D Anyone have the exact address for the place so I can figure a route?

I can't WAIT for Acen!!!!

I hate parking in Rosemont, and it's pricey, so that's why I'm going to just leave my car. I've got to go back to the Hyatt for picking up my badge and for the later meetup.

Looking at Trip Planner, there's two busses that leave from the Rosemont Blue Line terminal and stop near Mitsuwa: the #606 and the #616. Looks like the 606 is the better bet, with the 616 you have to walk .7 miles but the 606 stops .1 mile away. Trip planner is giving the next bus after the 4 PM meeting time as 4:50 but I will print a timetable (closer to the time..I'll loose it if I print it now! ;) Fare is $1.50, and if you take a second bus within 2 hours, it's $0.25 for a transfer. My recommendation is, when we get to the bus terminal, go inside and put $3 on a CTA transit card, it makes life a lot easier, since you don't have to worry about exact change! I'll be using my Chicago Card for that reason (hmm, which reminds me, need to go check the value...)

I'll probably be in my Danny Phantom shirt (which I am in the process of making right now :D ), dunno if I'm going to throw on my wig to go with it ;) but either way I'll be easy to spot!

I can't wait, this should be fun!

Best bet with the buses is to take #606, it stops at Arlington Heights Rd. and Algonquin which puts you at the corner where Mitsuwa is. The #616 will take you a little too far from Mitsuwa and is rush hour only so if you're not too quick and just hanging out there is a chance of getting stranded. So I would go with the #606 since it has a regular schedule compared to the #616. I put links to both routes below from the pace website.

Y'arggg. I've got school that day, and if I WERE to go, I'd probably show up late for the fact that I get home from school at 3:30, and then I'd have to make the 45 minute drive out to Arlington Heights ... I don't know if I'd be able to make it out to Mitsuwa, but I'll probably head over to the Hyatt to hang out for a while.

So I'll repeat this here so that there is less confusion:

I'm very familiar with the public transit to Mitsuwa, and the BEST route is the
Pace Bus#606 that leaves from the Rosemont CTA station.
Parking is also available at the Rosemont CTA Station for $1 a day. FYI - The Rosemont Convention center generally overcharges for parking...

Here is the link for the bus route:
http://pacebus.com/s...asp?RouteNo=606

You will want the stop thats at Algonquin & Arlington Heights which is marked 3 on the map of the #606 route.
http://pacebus.com/pdf/maps/606map.pdf


You will want to buy a 1 day Visitors Pass from inside the Rosemont station for $5(exact amount needed, as there is no change available from the machine), as this will make your trip a LOT easier on the bus, without having to fumble for currency.

I used to take this route all the time to get to Mitsuwa, since I didnt have a car.

If we are official for 4pm meet-up at the Rosemont Station on Thursday, then I may be able to be there and help.

I was one the main people a few years back on the original ACENML that helped folks with public transit to/from ACEN and around. Let me know (PM me) if you need help, have any questions, or are unsure of anything. Im here to help. I'm not sure that I'll be able to be there to meet up with you all as previously mentioned, but I can offer my cell phone number to those whom PM me if needed.

jenchan -- if you can't make it, don't worry, I'll most likely be there (my manager had better give me Thurs off like I asked!) and I may not have taken the #606 before, I know my way around public transit so I can help too. :)

And as far as passes go, if you're just going to Mitsuwa and back the $5 visitor pass really isn't necessary as it'll be only $3 round trip (see my post above). There's fare card machines in the station that people can put the $3 on (I'll be stopping there myself just to check and make sure I've got enough on my Chicago card since I never use it anymore)

I'll be easy to spot -- I'm planning on wearing this: http://img215.images...ndpshirtbj1.jpg

Can't wait!! :D

I can give directions, simple directions!, to Mitsuwa for those of you that might not be able to make this for whatever reason. Below is the simple directions, then regular street directions for those of you that don't want to use the toll road or you can take the bus during the day, totally up to you. Note my directions assume you are heading out from the Hyatt facing west I believe (basically if you turn right you'll pass Mc D's along the way).

Simple Directions (using 1-90)
Turn Right onto River Rd. heading towards 1-90

(To get to 90, you have to turn onto Higgins and follow that until you hit Devon, there is a hospital I believe on the right, then you get on the ramp there. There is a toll booth when you get on and I don't know how much it is as the tollway system here in IL has different amounts at different points, so be sure to bring lots of change)

Take I-90 to the Arlington Heights Rd Exit (to my knowledge there is no toll to pay getting off here)
Turn right onto Arlington Heights Rd
Turn right onto Algonquin Rd
Turn left (at first light) on Tonne Rd
Turn left into first driveway and whee Mitsuwa ^^

Road Directions (without Tollway)
Turn right on River Road
Turn left onto Touhy (you should see Target on the left before this light)
Turn right onto Elmhurst Rd
Turn left onto Algonquin Rd
Turn right onto Tonne Rd (light right before Arlington Heights Rd)
Turn left into first driveway and whee Mitsuwa ^^


Back to the Hotel
I recommend taking the reverse of the street directions back to the hotel. It gets a bit screwy around the airport and those of us that are taking 90 know how screwy it is unless it gets modified one way or another. The road directions to Mitsuwa is about 30-40 minutes depending on traffic and possible construction that might pop up between now and the con in a couple of weeks.

Did they reopen the ramp from Higgins & Devon? I haven't been going that way lately so I didn't know it was done.

The toll plaza there is $0.40 for iPass (and affiliated things like EZ-Pass), or $0.80 cash.

For the non-highway directions though, beware River and Touhy. They're working on that I-294 overpass there, and sometimes River gets closed at night (trust me on that...I had to jump on 294 to get home one night last week).

Thanks for the Pace Bus PDF. I've lived around Chicago for years, but I still find the bus routes confusing.

If anyone's thinking about going to Chicago's Chinatown, please keep in mind that it isn't the ideal place to be. I've seen far worse neighborhoods. Still, getting there by CTA trains takes a long time, and parking around there is only for the brave.

(I've been to Mitsuwa, and I've sighted a few fans in the foodcourt. The fact that they wore distinct t-shirts helped.)

Sounds fun. Both the hotel and Mitsuwa are 20-25 minutes away from my house, so I may stop by and hang with you guys for a bit.

Just a heads up to those who haven't been to Mitsuwa in a few months! If you're hoping to buy stuff besides just food, you may be dissapointed. ^^"

The book store, toy store, and that knick-knack store are no longer there. ^^" There is a new book store near the front but they are smaller than the other place. The toy store moved down the street and they have weird hours. Sometimes they have a sign saying something like 'appointment only'.

Mitsuwa still has an AWESOME food court though! The also opened up a new ice cream shop, highly reccomended! And of course, there's the grocery store with plenty of snacks. For those who just want eats and to hang out with friends, go for it! ^_~

Sorry to sound like a downer! I just felt those from out of town could use a heads-up, just in case they were hoping to go to those stores that are no longer there. ^^"

I just wanna get some snacks mainly to eat during the con, we might have to head out to dominicks or something to get some beer and soda, but least inbetween big meals we'll have good tasting snacks.
