Best of Chicago

Amin / London | Mar 9, 2006 01:31 AM

Need some major help here please, and pretty fast too. My son is currently in Chicago(don't ask where he is staying cos I really don't know). He is with a cousin of his, and another cousin is arriving today. She's a VA gal but lives in NJ and will be having a car so distance is not a problem. He leaves on Saturday (or Sunday for Boston)

I have got a few good pointers from previous posts on this board, however would appreciate some additional help, so please advise:

(a)What is the best Chicago has to offer -Must see / Must Do for food, or shopping.

(b)What are the best foodie items he can pick up for his old man . Stuff that will carry well in his suitcase back to London. (He is going from Chicago to Boston and then DC /VA, so will subsequently post similar messages on the relevant boards).

(c)Where can they have a great time for one evening ?They are in the 23-28 age bracket(two single males and one single female). They don't drink so where can they spend say around $ 20-30 per head ?

(d)Ferry plaza -Is this the farmers market so often talked about on these boards ? trying to locate some back info on this (or some new one)

(e)TJ's - Where is TJ's and what are the best and easy to carry stuff to take back with him ?

While I await some great ideas from you, shall do some more delving in the old posts on this board

Many thanks / Amin
