Will be visiting chicago from minneapolis for barely two days next weekend. Thursday late we will get in to Lincoln Park where we'll be staying close to halsted and diversy. Our hosts will surely have favorite places to show us, but if there are any real gems nearby, or in the loop where i have to be friday morning/mid-day (is it worth it to cab to hot dougs friday? i understand standing in line and all that this would entail - is there something equally worthwhile closer to the lake?
Probably saturday we wanted to go to devon for indian - something we have enough of here but not anything mind-blowing. Assuming im looking for pretty much anything indian - north or south, with a slight preference for southern. Also, does anyone know if Mysore Woodlands is owned as part of the chain in India? Any recommendations for places to grab snacks and sweets are also much appreciated.
