Memorial Day Weekend - need help!

Jeserf | Mar 2, 2012 06:40 AM

Planning two nights in Chicago before heading to Milwaukee. This will be our first vacation as a married couple (after our first anniversary, but he was deployed to AFG for most of the year).

I want to have GREAT food planned out because I'm a foodie and he has been 8 months without anything tasty.

We're going to stay at the Hotel Monaco. I'm looking for afternoon snack spots, anything not fancy (I don't want to pack "nice" clothes). He doesn't like mexican/latin food (lame!) and we tend to stick to vegetarian options, though he'll eat fish and I'll eat what sounds good. He LOVES breakfast and is a big snacker. Yes, we'll be getting some Garrett's popcorn :)

We live in DC, and for reference points, we love Rasika, Dino, and I LOVE Birch and Barley/Chuchkey (he's never been).

So far, I know I'd like to hit Bongo Room and Mindy's Hot Chocolate. Last time we were in Chicago, we had the cafe at Spagia and loved it.

Help me make our only vacation as a married couple filled with excellent food!
