Long-time lurker, first-time poster here. Thanks to all the great Chicago Chowhounds who have helped me with restaurant and food ideas in the past!
A group of us is coming from Ohio to see U2 at Soldier Field on Tuesday, July 5, 2011. I have seen another thread with ideas for late-night dining after the show; many thanks. Our experience at the U2 concerts at Soldier Field in 2009 was that it takes forever to get out of Soldier Field, there are no taxis, public transit is crammed, and you might as well have a place to go!
Five to ten of us will be waiting in the General Admission line at Soldier Field all day on July 5 (I know we are insane). We can probably get Jimmy John's to deliver sandwiches to the line, as they did this in 2009. I would love to have other options. It is possible for one member of the party to leave and return with carryout, as long as they aren't absent longer than an hour or so. It would be wonderful to have a decent lunch, and I've been searching for possible options not too far away, but I am having trouble and hoped someone here could help, please! As far as I know, we have no food allergies or restrictions to deal with.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
