Hi, fellow foodsters!

my name is Dickson and i will be in Chicago from the 25th to the 30th. my trip revolves around Charlie Trotter's restaurant as it is closing and would love to finally meet him/eat his food. i will be staying at the dana hotel located between the loop and lincoin park, i do not have access to a car, but am willing to take public transportations.

i already have a few places I'm going to, but i would love some suggestions in bars (where bartenders like to drink), nightlife, restaurant and possibly sight seeing ideas

places I'm going to already include
-trotters (26th)
-hot doug's (possibly lunch of 27th because of duck fat fries)
-bert's place (tony bourdain recommendation)
-alinea (on the wait list, but will try to hound them for a table)
-riverside boat tour (recommended by my chef at work)

if anyone in the industry would be so kind to show me around, i would really appreciate it!
you can reach me on my email address

thanks in advance
