What: Day trip to Chicago for live show taping
Thursday, May 14, 2015
Time: 11:30am - midnight
Cost: $150/person
Who: This trip is for adults age 18 and up. You must be 21 to consume alcohol.

Grab a seat on this bus - they are VERY limited and this event sells out fast.


IMPORTANT NOTE: although the WWDTM reservation process has been updated this year and we have a firm date, there is always the outside chance we may have to change the date of our trip to another Thursday in May. We will contact everyone who has purchased tickets with any changes.

The day trip package includes 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.

wait wait stageWe are again partnering with Heartland Community College to bring you this opportunity. When you order your tickets, you will be asked to select one of the following lunch options:
Café Roast Beef
Freshly sliced roast beef, piled high with a horseradish cheddar cheese on pumpernickel rye bread. Served with mayonnaise, greens, tomato, and red onion.
Turkey & Pesto
Freshly sliced turkey and provolone served on Italian bread with a homemade red pepper & pine nut pesto.
Hummus & Veggies
A pita pocket stuffed with hummus, seasonal veggies, and romaine lettuce, sprinkled with fresh rosemary.
All lunches include regular chips, pickle spear, cookie, and bottled water.

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.
