Put me on the Waiting List
We are again partnering with Heartland Community College to bring you a day trip package including roundtrip bus transportation from Normal, a boxed lunch from Kelly's Bakery & Cafe for the ride up, shopping/sightseeing time in Chicago, dinner at the quaint authentic English pub Elephant & Castle, live taping of Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! and all gratuities. The live show is a full 2 hours long, so you get to enjoy twice the silliness when you're there in person.
Once in Chicago, you'll have several hours for sightseeing or shopping on your own. We'll meet up again for dinner at the Elephant & Castle. You'll be able to order your dinner entree from a slightly shortened version of their full menu. Your meal includes one beverage (beer, wine, or soft drink) and dessert. The Chase Bank Auditorium is walking distance from the restaurant.The live taping takes 2 hours, after which the bus will pick you up at the front door for the ride back to Bloomington/Normal.
