We are sooooooooo ready for #US99LakeShake this weekend, and I figured now is the best time to start planning the final details, right?


* Fanny pack to house all of this stuff below!
* Sunscreen (preferably SPF 99, like I wear)
* Credit card / cash / debit card
* Sunglasses
* Poncho
* Wear breathable clothes ... it's going to get HOT with so many people in one space!
* Your best friends

GETTING THERE (my secret is now yours!):

* I love to ride Divvy right to the gates. Hear me out. You can grab a bike anywhere across the Loop ... and they now feature a $3, 30-minute ride. So. Cheap. You can use the Lake Shore Drive / Roosevelt Road underpass with bike lanes and pedal east (north of Soldier Field) to either bike rack in front of the Field Museum or directly in front of the LS gates at the Planetarium.

* If you're a Bears fan like me, rent the Divvy and use the 19th St / Metra overpass which lands you directly on the south side of Soldier Field, east of Lake Shore Drive. From there, pedal to the same places.

* Uber / Lyft right to the door, but be aware that on the way back, it'll probably be easier to walk to Soldier Field before getting a ride.'

* The US*99 Shuttle Busses! All info can be found here! 


* Make sure you check out the #NextFromNashville stage line-up (next to the lawn!)
* The pop-up Opry stage is a #MustWatch for any country music fan! On Friday alone, we'll have acoustic shows from Raelynn, LOCash (!) & Tracy Lawrence
