+1  I think it adds something to the appeal to move around -- though,  
that having been said, Carl makes really good points about Sully's  
accessibility -- so IMHO, making it a frequent repeat venue is fine --  
but variety needs to be kept as well.  (I care more now that I'll be  
back in Chicago for good in a few months ;-)
