Best coffee/breweries/sandwiches/art in Chicago for a weekend away...

zammdogg | Jul 24, 201510:17 PM     24

We're headed to the Windy City, and as you've read from my other posts, I love five things in this world: odd clothing/shirts (preferably from local artists), coffee, doughnuts, breweries, and modern art. I'll be in Chicago for a weekend in September for a work trip.

I have reservations at Alinea and no other plans after 5pm. My partner will also need things to do while I'm stuck in meetings. I'll have access to public transportation and a good pair of shoes, but no car. I'm a hipster with an adventurous palate.

Potential itinerary:
Bad Wolf
Lou Malnati's Pizza
Metro Brewing
Little Goat Bakery
Intelligentsia Coffee
Alinea
Dark Matter Coffee
Firecakes
Frietkoten
Wormhole Coffee
Doughnut Vault
Lillie's Q (delivery)
