Hello readers,

This week we may witness history as the Chicago Cubs travel to Cleveland and continue their bid in the World Series where they could end up winning the championship for the first time in more than 100 years. The stakes are high, with everyone making wagers on the final team standing—including Kimpton Hotels. Last week Kimpton’s combined Chicago properties (the Allegro, Monaco, Palomar, Burnham and the Gray) sent a goat and the following message to their partner, The Schofield Hotel in Ohio.

“Your Kimpton sister hotels in Chicago wanted to let you know: [We Aren’t] Afraid of No Goats! But YOU should be. We’re so confident that our Cubbies will bring home the big W for Chicago that, if they don't, all Kimpton Chicago hotels will offer Ohio residents rates of $99 the month of December. And if the reverse happens, Schofield Hotel will offer Illinois residents the same deal the month of December. Do you accept our challenge?"

The Schofield did accept—now all fans of the Cubs (and Kimpton) just have to wait for the final play.

Note, the rates are limited and subject to blackout dates, but even so this is a great deal for the boutique hotel in Cleveland.

Happy Planning!
