A couple of weeks ago, we spent the weekend in Chicago for a change of scenery.
The main reason was to see Hamilton – which was fantastic – but the rest of the time, we had no real agenda.
It was ridiculously cold, so most everything we did was within a 4 block radius. Shopping, a few pubs (more on that later), dinner, and the SNL Experience!
Since I’ve watched SNL from the first season, this was a real treat. The exhibit takes you from the creation of the show, through the writers room, the daily process of bringing the show to air, all the way to a mock stage with Tina Fey as “host”.
There are tons of artifacts and costumes on display, which I’m told are original and have been ordered back to New York on a moments notice. There are also classic videos being shown throughout the exhibit.
Well worth a stop next time you’re in the city…just check with Groupon first to see if discount tickets are available!
