We'll be in Chicago next Friday the 3rd and leaving Monday morning.
First visit for my husband and I. Main reason we're visiting is for the food.
We have great restaurants here in LA, but really want the whole Chicago experience.
I've been reading and reading and reading this board for the last couple of weeks and I don't know where to start.
as far as what we don't want: we don't necessarily want to go to a very fancy shmancy dinner, a steak house like Cut or Mastros here in LA. We really want great food, Chicago style.
Looks like most of the vote here on Chowhound is for Lou Malnati's for deep dish w/the butter crust.
how far is Hot Doug's from Downtown? we will not have a car.
We're definitely going to a Cubs game either Friday night or Sat or Sun afternoon.
we're staying at a friends condo in downtown close to many many pubs.
Honestly, I'm so confused right now that I can't think anymore.
any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated
