There's no doubt the Ravinia experience (BYOB, picnic) is pleasant and one-of-a-kind. But lawn ticket prices, considering the lack of a view of the performers, have certainly gotten to a new level ($38 for Garcia Tribute, $49 for Simon, Dylan). Bring your wallet if you're looking to get in the pavilion. Choose carefully!
