Visiting from San Francisco -- Need a couple of more "Must Do's/Eats"!!

Hey all --

My girlfriend and I will be visiting from San Francisco on Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get reservations at Alinea, so I'm hoping we can at least get into Aviary at some point to try some of the drinks.

Here is what we're up to during the 4 nights we'll be there....My question is this; what are a couple "MUST DO's," "MUST DRINKS," or "MUST EATS" that we should check out that aren't on my list? We love intricate cocktails, and I'm a HUGE pizza freak (especially Chicago style, so any options besides the ones I listed would be great), and definitely don't want to miss out on any "must's" that your city has to offer, so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Eats:
Girl and the Goat.
Lou Malnati's

Great Lake pizza -- is it worth they hype?

Cocktails:

To Do's
