I've got no responses on the Chicago board and have always found Manhattan simpatico-- anyone here know Chicago? Need help by the 25th!:
I'm heading back to Chicago for my August trip, this time with my terrier. We know where to go in New York (Verbena is our new favorite, and Kavahaz gets points for letting us duck inside last Saturday for a drink during a late afternoon shower) but are clueless about Chicago. We don't want to be condemned to room service every night and would be grateful for suggestions. We're staying at the Drake again, but don't mind taxis provided they welcome us both.
