Staying South of the Loop - anything close by?

foster | May 4, 2012 12:19 PM

My husband and I will be visiting for the first time during the last week of June for 5 days. We are staying in a condo a few blocks from the Sears Tower, a place called River City. From what I can tell, there aren't a lot of worthwhile spots in the immediate vicinity - more of a DBD area, correct? I am thinking the Gage might be one of the few places we might try if we are very hungry or thirsty & don't want to walk too far...

Don't get me wrong, I have scouted out lots of places to go over the course of our trip, I am just wondering about what is REALLY close to us - a mile or so's walk for

1. worthwhile food or drink
2. a market where we might buy a few things for our fridge - fruit, beer, maybe something to throw on the grill.

***I have just edited the thread name - thanks Ferret & Masha for telling me which neighborhood I will call home for a few days!******************

Thanks in advance!
