can't hardly wait!

So, my "big" trip to Chicago, with Mom, purely for fun, is less than two weeks away. We arrive at various times on Thursday, April 13... hopefully Mom's plane will be on time, or we'll miss the first plans. (Although, I'm so stoked about Topolobampo, I think I'd grab a cab and go without her if I had to!)

We're staying at the InterContinental. Most advice welcome, although I'm utterly sold on Topolobampo and Keefer's, so don't try to disuade me :-)

Topolobampo @ 2:00
With eating lunch so late, and with theatre tickets for 7:30, I'm leaning towards ordering Lou Malnati's delivery to the hotel upon our return. Anyone know if that's an option for our location and hour?

We were going to breakfast at Ann Sather's (almost solely because of the cinnamon rolls), until I actually mapped it! No thanks. So, we need to come up with something that will hold us up through a Chicago Greeter tour and shopping the Mag Mile until afternoon tea at the Ritz-Carlton at 2:30.
Haven't a clue what we're doing for dinner this evening, we have Blue Man Group tickets for 7:00.

Probably breakfast in the room or at least in the hotel.
Not a clue what to do for lunch. Is street food a M-F thing? I love street food, and we just don't have it here. Or maybe we'll figure out how to get to Santorini's.
Dinner reservations for Keefer's.

Sunday heading home at an obscenely early hour.

And, I'm almost looking as much forward to reporting on the food experiences as I am to the trip/experiences themselves! :-)

Kind regards,
