Jay Pritzker Pavilion
Millennium Park, 201 E Randolph St, Chicago, Illinois 60603
Join fellow IC alums on the great lawn at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park for a night of fellowship and laughs. This event is free and BYO...Everything. Bring blankets, a low lawn chair, and a picnic dinner. Please plan to show up early as possible. In past years the venue has CLOSED entry at 6 pm due to venue capacity. Spots are hard to save as well. IC board members will be arriving at 5 pm or earlier to steak out a spot but that is no guarantee. PLEASE show up early.

Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is WBEZ and NPR’s wildly popular weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio, listeners and contestants test their knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what’s real news and what’s made up.

The live tapings at the Chase Bank Auditorium are some of the hottest tickets in town. WWDTM is like the girl (or boy) that everyone wants to ask to prom and there are only so many dance cards to go around. Our solution? A wonderful night on the lawn at Millennium Park with host Peter Sagal and crew! Listeners are invited to bring a blanket and a picnic and to join us at downtown.

This is a classic Chicago event, WWDTM under the stars with a huge crowd — a crowd so large that in 2015, gates closed an hour before the start of the show due to venue capacity!

The park will open at 5:00PM. There is not reserved seating for this event. Seating is first come, first served. Hint: Get there early!
