I realize I started another topic a couple of days ago regarding Alinea, so my apologies for bombarding your board. You have been so helpful so I'd like to ask some opinions regarding my food schedule that I have planned for an October weekend.
My sister and I are traveling to Chicago for the Skate America competition. She is a skating fanatic, and I am tagging along to sample the Chicago cuisine. Our schedule is pretty tight as there are competitions from 1-4PM and 7-10PM daily at the Sears Center. I wanted a combination of fine dining and casual dining and everything in between.
Here is what I have for now:
1. Friday Late Dinner - Pequod's Pizza/Franks N' Dawgs
2. Saturday Lunch/Brunch: Publican (Made reservations for 10AM)
3. Saturday Dinner - Girl & the Goat (Made reservations for 4:30PM), post-skating snack: Purple Pig (planning to go at about 11PM)
4. Sunday Lunch - Avec
5. Sunday Dinner - Alinea (we are skipping the end of the competition to make time for Alinea)
Thoughts? I know we may be overloading ourselves with food, but there are so many places to try in one short weekend. A little bummed that there isn't any time for Grace.
