hi there,

san francisco chowhound coming to chi-town for the asian american jazz festival -- i apologize for not combing the board -- and want to eat right on a shoestring. i'm staying on N. Deerborn bet. Division and North. mostly bound by foot but anything and all would be much, MUCH appreciated!

some wants and needs (on the cheap):

strong coffee (don't tell me starbucks!)
good (authentic, regional) chinese
late night
pizza (last year, it was... ok. now i want great!)
indian (any region) or pakistani
places w/ veggie options
soul food
are there any good ramen places out there?
anything else i shouldn't miss?

. and also, if you'all got favorite used bookstores, vintage or thrift clothe stores, record stores or anything that might help make the most of my weekend in chicago. thanks ahead of time.

*also, can you cc: me personally?*
