Hello to everyone and thank you for this wonderful forum. My BF & I will be arriving in Chicago on Sept 17 at 1:30 and taking the orange/ red line in from MDW to the Palmer. Could you give me feedback on this itinerary? Is it all "do-able"? Should I make reservations at any of the restaurants? No car, just public trans and walking (I love HopSpot.com). Thanks for all your help.
