Hi mercer - Blake moved over a year ago. New address is 212 W Chicago Ave. Good news is that it is much closer to Ikram -- I'd say about 1 mile. Depends how much walking you want to/can do . Or its a really short cab ride. You can get directions from one to the other on Google maps or Mapquest.

Samantha Chicago is a great store, hard to see from the street. It is located on the second floor (so you have to walk up some stairs) It carries brands like, ya-ya,vince, lewis cho, rami kashou, AKA New York, Shoshana, Citrine by the Stones, Cynitha Vincent, Theory, Michael Stars, Goldenbleu, True Religon, 575, Kasil, Genetic, Nation, Karen Zambos, Joe's, Kenneth Jay Lane, Karoo, Trina Turk, and even more than that.

Sugar Magnolia is also a very popular store, I have only been in once. And im not sure what all the brands are, but I'm sure it is worth a trip!!!

Going to Chi-town this weekend, very excited! Anyone know how easy it will be to find free parking on weekends near N. Michigan Ave? I don't mind parking further away (but paying less) and then walking or taking public transit to the shopping district. Isn't it $7/hr to park at some lots right at N. Mich?

Exactly! Do you know anywhere near the shopping area or at least the El station that has free parking? I'm planning on buying a pass for the El anyways so I can get to and from my car if I have to.

Chitown was fabulous! And to top it all off, I saw Nelly while shopping at Water Tower Place. There was a huge crowd outside the Water Tower Clock Shop where he was buying a huge diamond encrusted Rolex. (They shut down the store, but I was surprised that the store didn't close the blinds since people were snapping pics.) And yes, you could see his grillz.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess it was more than 18 hours ago but less than 72.

Yes, of course, based on the time of my post. But more specifically, it was Saturday night around closing time. (Why do all the damn stores in Chicago close so early?)

JJohnson, where do you work?
