I'll be in town for 3 days and 2 nights in late February, staying in the Lakeview area. I'll be visiting on somewhat of a whim and will be traveling solo and looking for some recommendations on activities, pubs and dining (or combination of some or all of the above).
My interests are first and foremost beer, good/unique food then museums, local flavor, etc. I'm sure I'll be able to find plenty of things to stick my nose in, but more so looking for recommendations on any quality gastropubs or hole-in-the-wall not-to-be-missed eats that will be more hospitable to the solo diner or person stopping in for a pint.
Any place on public transit is fine, though I haven't seen much of the Lakeview/Wrigleyville area and would prefer to stay around there if possible. That said, if there's something that shouldn't be missed let me know.
Thanks in advance.
