Chicago Foodie Marathon 4 days - big aspirations - need advice!

foodiememoirs | Sep 16, 2009 08:18 AM

I am a foodie from Vermont. I will be traveling to Chicago October 17-20th. I have absolutely nothing on my agenda except for to EAT! So tell me... what should I do? What should I see? To be honest it is a bit overwhelming and I need some help.
Are there some great restaurants that I should try? Tell me about the hole in the wall places... the locals only joints... the places that specialize in one thing and do it REALLY well! I am on a budget so I dont really want to hear about fine dining folks.
What areas should I go to to find some really good markets or cool culinary shops? Are there any worth while culinary classes workshops or tours that I should check out?
I would love to know if there is anything special going on paticularly during those dates that I should take advantage of.

Thank You for your help!!
links to websites will help me if you have them.
