I'm going to visit Chicago for a few days in two weeks, and I don't see any existing Chicago threads. Food: I made a reservation at Moto and also plan to hit up Hot Doug's and Lou Malnati's. Any other places of note to try? Girl and the Goat is booked up until mid September. Maybe I'll have some luck checking opentable regularly to see if anyone cancelled. Shopping: Coming from Toronto, I'm considering picking up a Burberry trench to save on taxes. Is the outlet at Lighthouse Place worth it? I would have to rent a car for the day, I believe. Any stores that stock APC/McNairy/W+H type stuff that I can check out while I'm there?
