Come to the market place, it will give a taste of what type of guys will be there. You will have various vendors selling everything from porn to jewelry so bring your wallet. There will be various events all around the city so checkout IML's website or grab a Gay Chicago mag. I can't wait for IML, I will be attending the Onyx party which is always given by the Onyx club which is a black leather group, it's the of the few times here in Chicago where you will get a good mixture of gay guys together on a dance floor lol. I love to see the looks of stuffy straights as they see the guys from IML walk down the street hand in hand in their chaps, PRICELESS!!!!! You also have to checkout the cocktail mixers held at the host hotel, its also a chance to meet the guys that have come in for the event. My friends and I usual go that Friday of that weekend after work, checkout the market place then head straight to the mixer, the eye candy is AMAZING!!!! Have fun!!!!
