By Karl Klockars in News on May 12, 2011 4:18PM

Per our sources, Chicagoist has learned that Vice President Joe Biden plans to travel to Chicago on Monday to attend the inauguration of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

In today's Sneed column, she asks "Is President Obama planning to come to Chicago for Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel's inaugural festivities Monday?" Close, but no cigar.

Of course, plans can change. If they don't, we're looking forward to seeing you on Monday, Mr. Vice President.

UPDATE: Greg Hinz at Crains is also reporting that Biden will be in attendance, and adds that three Cabinet members (not yet named) will be along for the ride. Sounds like it's going to be quite the shindig.
