WASHINGTON--While the main NATO/G-8 summit meetings in May will be held at the McCormick Place campus, a variety of other events--receptions, official dinners, spouse activities--will be also be taking place in the city. Secret Service and State Department officials have been combing Chicago's iconic venues and are about to finalize their decisions. Think Field Museum, Art Institute, Navy Pier, other museums, etc.

Meanwhile, the State Department is finalizing the deal (actually a government purchase order) to take-over McCormick Place for the summits.
