Yeah it looks like it could be pulled off. Is it safe to stay downtown? I'm just not familiar with the area at all.

Yeah, downtown is safe. Something to consider if you stay downtown since you're bringing your car is that parking will be around $25-30 a day, so factor that into your travel budget.

Pre-season NFL games cost the same as regular season and the results factor into the play-off picture.

Schedule - Chicago Bears

What do you mean the results factor into the playoff picture?

Wow, that's pretty crazy. I guess I'll have to see if I can get any tickets first before making a decision. I know Stubhub will have, but seems like they usually sell for like 3x the face value.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a hotel that we could stay in? I'm not looking to spend a whole lot, but something nice that is moderately priced. I would prefer to walk to the game if possible. Also is there a better way to drive into the city? Will we have to go through bad areas to get to Soldier Field?

Soldier Field lies right next to the lake. There are absolutely no bad neighborhoods you would have to walk through to get there. All youll have to do is dodge traffic and the occasional panhandler in Millenium or Grant Parks. Safe as safe can be.

I am pretty sure it can be pulled off.
Looks like you wont be able to see the Hawks unless you go to Finland that weekend:

Oct 2, 2009 Panthers at Blackhawks (Helsinki, FI) 11:00AM

Sat Oct 3, 2009 Blackhawks at Panthers (Helsinki, FI) 11:00 AM

You would have to stay here a week to see the Hawks...

Sat Oct 10, 2009 Avalanche at Blackhawks Chicago 7:30 PM
