Cheesecake Factory and Giordannos (spelling?) Yeah, leave it to the fat kid to bring up the food places.

Field Natural History Museum - they have the most complete T-Rex in the world there ("Sue").

I've always wanted to go there!

I'd say you don't like science as much as I do

Go eat at Ed Debevic's, their food is awesome, and the servers dance on the tables and are rude to the customers, it's great.

Field Museum, The Museum of Science and Industry, The Art Institute, Shed Aquarium, and Navy Pier are all fun if you have never been there before, or if you are on field trip in junior high.

If you like concerts, check out who is playing at local venues like the Aragon Ballroom, The Riviera, Double-Door Bar, or the Metro.

One thing that is kinda "touristy" but I still love to do whenever I am downtown in the daytime is going up to the top of Sears Tower, which they just renamed "Willis Tower". The view is awesome on a clear day.

Or even take in a Bulls or a Blackhawks game, seeing the United Center is a must for anybody in Chicago.

Just stay off the Eden's Expressway around 5pm. Or just avoid driving at all around 5pm. That sucks.
