LOOP - The other official Chicago Sun Times party happens at the Palmer House with Yelp. All ballrooms in the hotel are open with lots of bars serving top shelf-only and a variety of hors d'oeuvres and massive confetti storm.

Like the Sun Times party at the Wyn, prices include pre party and post party for $145 and have the option of a discounted hotel room. [Racked Wire]
