Hi All,

The wife & I are coming to your fair city 10/23-10/25.
Here is what I have planned.
Please critique itinerary and make meal recomendations.
We are coming in at 930am Friday and leave b4 breakfast on Sunday.
Staying at Intercontinental but don't let that influence your ideas, they're free nights.
We're looking for non-high end places.
We'll be walking or taking public transit everywhere.
We're 30somethings.
Places without screaming kids running around would be nice.
Want to try local joints.
Must have -at least- one meal with a good chicago dog, and italian beef.
Dinners could be Italian, Pizza, Polish, PubGrub, American, etc.
No Indian or similar foods.
Please no fancy-places.
Let's stay under $20p for each meal.

I know the schedule is tight but we're trying to get it all in!!

Friday
1030am Drop bags at hotel
11am Lunch at ???
1pm Shoreline Architectural River Cruise - Navy Pier
2pm Lighthouse, Ferris Wheel, Carousel - Navy Pier
