We Went to Oprah!!! Chicago, Illinois, Part 2

Well, unfortunately this is our last post for a while, but we will post again, so do check back. Thought we’d end with some insights and tips into our Oprah experience…….and how you can see a show (or two) as well.

  1. If you’re in the Chicago area, be sure to check the Oprah audience reservation website – there are often last-minute shows that need audience members.

  2. Again, if you’re in the Chicago area, you can go to Harpo Studios and get in the stand-by line ~ often times, and we were told in especially cold weather, people do not show-up for their seats, and seats open. Be sure you get there early, by 6:30 am for the first show, and by 9am fort he second.

  3. If you won’t be in Chicago anytime soon, but still want to get tickets and go, check our post about how to get reservations – if you’ve tried before, it was much easier with their new online system then how we had to call, just a year ago.

  4. There is an Oprah Store (of course)! You do not need to have gone to a show to go to the store, and all proceeds benefit charity. Suzanne, not the most enthusiastic shopper, bought two pairs of socks with an “O” on them. Brad stood with the other 4 men trying to hold their ground.

  5. Have fun! Even though we didn’t love the topics – it was still amazing to see Oprah work in person – it’s a much different experience than watching her on television.

  6. Diet before you go to Chicago ~ the food was incredible and we both fit a bit more snuggly in our clothes when we got home! :-)

I am just green with envy! I have watched Oprah since the day she went on the air and she is my all time favorite celebrity in the world. I missed another chance to see one of her shows (always has been the wrong time of year when we have been in the area)this past summer!
Oh well, thanks for letting me go with you in your blog.
Maybe someday when Oprah and I are really older and grayer ... :)
Good hearing from you guys!
