If you’re going to be around after php|tek on Friday, May 25, we want you to come have an adventure with us! We’re all going to sample the sights and sounds of downtown Chicago, and have some fun in the process (in true PHP Community spirit).
The Community JAUNT will include:
* Blue Line Tickets to/from downtown Chicago
The Blue Line will take us directly from O’Hare to Jackson Station, a few blocks from where we’ll be spending most of our time. Trains run regularly, so when you’re ready to go home, you can do so at any time. We’ll provide you with a schedule, or you can find it online.
Chicago’s deep dish Giordano’s is world-famous, and we’ll be eating at one of the oldest locations in the city. http://giordanos.com
After we eat, we’ll be heading up to the breathtaking Skydeck Chicago (http://theskydeck.com). We’ll see Chicago like never before: 1,353 ft. in the air! If you’re brave enough, you can enter one of the glass boxes extending out 4 feet into the air from the 103rd floor. For more information on the whole Skydeck experience, their site offers a video tour (http://www.theskydeck.com/plan-visit/the-skydeck-experience-video).
From there, we’ll visit one of the local “English-inspired” pubs to relax over a few pints. (http://elephantcastle.com). We have been told by the locals that they have one of the best whisky selections in the city.
