Memorial Day / Guys' Weekend

Howdy, Chowhound!

I'm going to be in Chicago with a couple friends from college over Memorial Day Weekend. I'm looking for suggestions for some cool stuff to do while we're there... restaurants, shows, tours, bars, clubs, etc. We'll be staying a couple blocks west of Michigan Ave (corner of E Superior & Wabash) and will be using public transportation to get around the city.

So far, we are planning on doing Giordanno's at some point and are considering making the trek out to Hot Doug's. I know that we are going to want to do dinner at the best steakhouse we can find, so any recommendations are welcome... Chicago Cut & Joe's are the two big ones that keep coming up in my searches. The Aviary has caught my eye for after-dinner drinks one night. I also think it would be cool to do a comedy/improv show. Vertigo Sky Lounge will be close by, so we may do that one night. Purple Pig looks like it could be a good lunch idea.

Anything else you guys could recommend? This trip is going to primarily be a 1-year graduation reunion and a chance for everybody to unwind from work.
