I'm not sure what is going to be bigger in Chicago the weekend of August 6-8, 2010...Chicago Trauma Symposium or Lollapalooza? They both have big names performing. You may run into Lady Gaga, Green Day or Soundgarden at the Palmer House but they won't be speaking on orthopaedic trauma.
What timing! If you enjoy great live music, people watching or general excitement this is a great weekend for you. Lollapalooza happens to be taking place the same weekend as the course almost just across the street at Grant Park. What a great way to relax after the course each evening.
