10th Anniversary Trip, Need Suggestions

midweb23 | Aug 14, 2011 04:24 PM

My wife and I have planned out a trip to Chicago to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Our itinerary is as follows:
Day 1: We arrive on a Wednesday afternoon at Midway around 230pm. Our first reservation is Topolobampo for dinner at 8pm. We are taking the train from Midway to our hotel downtown, the Hotel Palomar. We would love to find somewhere interesting to grab a quick bite either on the way to the hotel or in the near vicinity of the hotel before our dinner that night.
Day 2: Our anniversary day! We plan on visiting Fox & Obel for breakfast and to peruse the market before heading out for sightseeing. We want to try deep dish pizza for lunch, thinking Lou Malnati's?Our dinner reservations that night are for Alinea at 730pm, can't wait!
Day 3: We are planning for breakfast at Bongo Room and some more sightseeing before heading back to Midway for an afternoon flight.
My wife loves cupcakes and would love to visit a bakery or two. I am a beer connoisseur and would love to find a local brewery/brewpub for a tasting or a great beer store to take some bottles home. We also would love to squeeze a visit to Sable at the hotel after reading great things about it. I don't know where we would fit this in, maybe just after dinner drinks. We are also open to visiting any other "can't miss" foodie destinations and are open to suggestions. Thanks for any input!
