I have an 11 hour layover at O'Hare, arriving at 8pm and leaving the next morning at 7am. I feel like I have time to really hang out and eat in one neighborhood for the night, so I was looking for suggestions. I am looking to wander from one restaurant/bar to the next, drinking and eating the night away with a friendly crowd. Any thoughts on neighborhoods and corresponding food/drink? I'm in my late-twenties and on a little bit of a budget if that narrows anything down.
Thanks for all your help!
P.S. Is it true I have to eat Chicago hot dogs, beef dip sandwiches or deep dish pizza?
