Hey guys, I'm going to Pitchfork Fest with my brother and we need some good places to eat as well as a nice place to stay. I've amazingly never set foot in Chicago. I guess D.C. as close as it is along with my frequent visits to NYC kind of made it a moot point in my mind (what else do you need in a city?). I know nothing of the food. I know my brother wants to go to Pizzeria Uno for the novelty alone. Other than that, I'm lost. Also, can anyone recommend a good hotel that doesn't have outrageous rates? I was on the brink of booking a room at the House of Blues (which would have been about a grand for three nights) but stopped myself. I recently stayed at the Gershwin in NYC (remember that thread?), and it was an awesome experience. The hotel was really trendy (and full of models) coupled with the fact it was just over $100 a night. Now, I'm aware I probably won't get that price in Chicago, but I want a similar experience; I try to avoid chains at all costs. And this is all. Hope you guys can help. P.S. - An obvious one for the SF crew: any good clothing shops? My favorite stateside shop is Odin and I've been buying a lot of Japanese streetwear off of coldrice, if that gives you an idea of my style. Also, any vinyl-heads know if it's worth a trip to Rotofugi?
