The Chicago 2016 Bid Committee is having a big party in Millennium Park on Wednesday the 3rd, hosted by Chicago's greatest athlete, Oprah Winfrey (hey, she did run that marathon!). Meet hundreds of Olympians and cheer on Chicago's chances to host the 2016 Games. UPDATED: Although the Chicago 2016 blog says he park opens at 6am, and entry is first-come, first-served, says to stop by the park at noon tomorrow for reservation information. This event is the season premiere of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
