Parking Spots for sale at Taco Bell
We are offering parking spots for a fee at Taco Bell (1111 W Addison St, Chicago, IL) which is just north and west of John Barleycorn, Wrigleyville.
$5 plus ticketting fees ($6.11) will get you spot from 6pm to 10:30pm. This price is available until December 4th. After that, parking spots will go for $10 plus ticketting fees ($11.24). This is until all the spots are sold.
You may also decide to pay by check (See "Pay By Check Option"). If you do this, you can leave off the ticketting fees. Spots will be awarded after checks are received and cleared and only while they are still available (otherwise the checks will be voided.)
48 hour cancellation fee is in effect for these tickets as well.
Buying a parking spot does not give you access to the party. You still need to purchase an "Advanced Ticket" or "Early Bird Ticket" to attend. Only people who have purchased an "Advanced" or "Early Bird Ticket" will be permitted to buy a spot. All other tickets will be removed and refunded up until the 48 hours before the event (removed after that point.)
Parking after 10:30
If you intend to leave your car in the lot after 10:30pm, you can pay the parking attendant $5 extra.
When you arrive at the lot, you will have to leave the attendant your car key; so, that they can move the cars. We will also request a description of your car & license plate number in case there is an issue where we need to contact you during the party.
There are two private parking lots located at 3509 North Clark and 3511 North Clark. You can also park at the McDonald's (at Clark & Addison) for $10 while spots are available.
Meter parking is also available along Clark St., but you'll have to feed the meter after 2 hours.
