How's My 5 Day Eating Agenda Looking? Help Make My Trip Awesome!

vissai | Apr 18, 201201:52 PM

I will be visiting Chicago for the first time 5/11-5/16. I have worked on my eating agenda for months now, but I still have some decisions to make. I figured people as obsessed with eating as I am could help me.
Some Info:
-I can only afford one crazy meal and Alinea is it so no Trotters, Tru, L20 etc :(
-My Fiance and I will be doing CrossFit 2-3 days during the trip to be able to make the biggest dent possible.
-I will be staying at the Dana Hotel in the River North area.
-I can eat silly amounts of food, seriously I have a bottomless stomach.
