Trip to Chicago in July with family

nhinske | Apr 29, 2014 11:27 AM

Our family consists of two adults, two kids, 8 & 10 and my mom, 65yo. We are all headed to Chicago in July. There will be some days my husband is in a conference and other days we will all be together. One night, my husband and I will get date night! Whoo-hoo!

We are staying downtown at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers. Here are the places various people are interest in:

Girl and the Goat
The Signature Room on the 95th floor of the Hancock building
Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder
Do-Rite Donuts

We are also considering going to the Tommy Gun's Garage Show. It got great reviews on Tripadvisor.

Any must-dos and don'ts? I hear we have to do the popcorn place. For our date night, we would love to bar hop and explore but don't want to get turned away at the door for not having reservations. Any general areas/restaurants that would fit the bill?

Also, we have time for a leisurely breakfast on a Saturday morning. Any suggestions for something relatively near our hotel?

Do-Rite Donuts & Chicken,
Do-Rite Donuts & Coffee,
Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company,
Chicago Pizza Tours,
The Signature Room at the 95th®
