monamiestephanie | Jun 24, 2010 12:47 PM

I'll be visiting Chicago this October to run the Chicago Marathon! I'll be staying at the Westin Chicago River North. This'll be my first time visiting, and I'd like to try a bit of everything--from the low-end to the high.

Can you please review my plans? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

Dinner - Frontera Grill (or is Topolobampo a must?)

FRI 10/8:
Breakfast - Hot Doug's
Lunch - Blackbird

SAT 10/9:
