Is there a relatively recent Chicago (the city) thread? GF and I were there last spring, and are going again next month, and I was wondering if there is anything we should do. We're going Wednesday and coming back Saturday afternoon (3 nights), so we have Longman & Eagle, Eataly, and pizza on the list for lunch, and Gibson's, Intro, and dinner/food in Wrigleyville after a Cubs game for dinner. Anything we shouldn't miss in late May?
Also, any good whiskey bars and/or cocktail bars? And anywhere to smoke a cigar in the city? We're staying at the Raffaelo if that matters (so Drumbar is on the list at some point), but a good bourbon bar or cocktail/cigar bar rec in the city (and preferably not too far away) would be great.
my favorite bar in chicago was the velvet hour but i would go somewhat early or pretty late. Huntsman didn't like it as much, but i would put it in my top 5 bars. also the aviary (by achatz and friends)
i also really loved just having the dessert course at Tru
