Chicago Blues Weekend January 14-16, 2011 January 3, 2011

Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.

The Chicago Blues Weekend Winter 2011 will include 12 performances at 12 venues over 3 days during the Martin Luther King 3-day weekend, Jan. 14-16, 2011.

Featured events include 3 Chicago Blues Express shuttles, Buddy Guy appearing at his own club, Legends, a daytime Chicago Blues History Tour, and the legendary House of Blues Gospel Brunch.
The shuttles will feature some of your Chicago Blues Tour favorites, including Linda’s Place, Lee’s Unleaded Blues, and Wallace’s Catfish Corner full details available at the link below.

If you missed the half-price tickets offer, I’ve got another deal to announce, and I’m calling it the 69/69 deal. You can get Blues Express tickets for $69 and a discounted hotel room in downtown Chicago for the same $69 price, but you have to act now, as supply is limited for both rooms and seats. (We only have about 20 discounted seats left, and less than that many rooms).

You can get tickets for the Blues Express at the Chicago Blues Weekend site: http://www.chicagoblueswekend.com/jan2011

Hotel Discounts
Once again the Congress Plaza Hotel is offering rooms for just $69/night in a landmark Michigan Ave. hotel to all Chicago Blues Weekend guests. It’s a short walk from Buddy Guy’s Legends, Blues Express Shuttles and Chicago Blues History Tour will make pickups there, and it’s right across the street from beautiful Grant Park and a short cab ride from House of Blues.

Rooms will be available for $69 until January 7th at the Chicago Blues Weekend site:


CHICAGO BLUES EXPRESS shuttle all 3 nights!
All 3 nights will feature a Chicago Blues Express themed shuttle.
Shuttles depart from the Congress Plaza Hotel Tap at 520 S. Michigan, and visit 3 venues featuring live blues band, and return downtown 4.5 to 5 hours later. Seats are reserved and you will have your own reserved shuttle seat for the entire itinerary.

*All admissions & cozy shuttle-van transportation
*2 drinks (soft drink, beer, wine, or well drink — upgrades available at additional cost at time of purchase)
