Hi Chicago Chow Hounds! Greetings from Bay Area Chow Hound. We are headed to Chicago for the first time for my 50th B Day celebration. Will be there e/o April for 3 nights. I've been reading the posts. Here's what I've come up with so far. Thurs: Spiaggia Fri: Cubs game. Fri night: Charlie Trotters: Sat night: Gibsons (friend says Morton's is better but I don't get that from this site). You like? Any advice? Looking for cool lunches/ brunch. We don't leave until Sunday night. Staying at the Sofitel Water Tower -it's suppose to be a good location. What to do during the day? Are there some cool neighborhoods to check out/ eat lunch? In addition to food, I love music/ the blues. Chicago Blues! Yeah Baby! Any recs? Thanks in advance.
