Chicago foodie weekend - please comment on eatinerary

OK, so a friend and I have a foodie/girls weekend coming up in about a month. Below are our meal plans...thoughts welcome!

Thursday: Arrival day
Lunch at Badhappy
Dinner at Girl and the Goat

Lunch at Topolobambo
Dinner at Spiaggia

Lunch: open
Dinner at Moto
Possible if up to it - drinks at Aviary

Brunch at Table 52
Dinner at Alinea!

A few questions re Alinea: I've been reading the "wine pairing debate" that is currently occuring in recent yelp reviews on Alinea. My friend and I love wine, so I would lean toward pairing. Anyone paired and not been happy? Also, is the highest level of pairing worth it? (I think there is a reserve pairing and regular pairing, correct)?

Another aside, because we wanted it to be the last meal of the trip, our reservation is Sunday...and because it is Aliena the only time (aside from 5:30) that was available was 9:15. I've read on yelp of bad service in the last sunday slots. Anyone have experience with this slot who can reassure me that this is not the case?

Monday: depart, with a stop on the way to the airport for stretchier pants, lol!
