Eating Chicago - Continued from Before

Holly Moore | Jul 29, 2002 06:56 PM

Greetings -

Folks asked for my eating plan for Chicago over a 2-3 Day visit. Here it is, though not final.

Once you look at it - 4 questions:

What should I eliminate
What should I add
What are the best road food dinner choices
Where should I stay to minimize traffic and travel time
