I had gone to a symphony concert in Millennium Park at the Pritzker Pavilion. Locked the bike to a rack near the south end, right next to Monroe Street. This was right next to an entrance to the underground garage and directly across from the entrance to the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago. This was also only about 50 yards from a security station where they were checking bags to get into the park. It was a high traffic area and there were at least 6-8 other bikes locked on the same rack at that time. It was locked through the front wheel and the frame with an Abus Bordo 6000 folding lock. I locked it up at about 5:15PM and went into the park. It was gone, along with the lock, when I came out at about 8:15PM. There was also a different bike locked in the spot where I had locked mine, so mine must have been stolen early enough that another person was able to lock theirs in place for the concert (which had started at about 6:30PM.
