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.
Forgot about Ed Debevic's its awesome, I love that place, but go early because it gets packed...Navy Pier is a great time as well

I've always wanted to go up the Sears tower.

But the most important thing you need to do,
is try "the best sandwich in the world" (Anthony Bourdain)

I Love this guy, and wanna try one of these next time I am in Chicago,
so you try it, and let us know if its really so tasty???

Silver Palm restaurant, Three little pigs Sandwich.

smoked ham, a breaded pork cutlet, two strips of bacon, and two fried eggs, blanketed in a thick coat of gruyere, all on a brioche bun.

Let me know how long you'll be there, Que. I might be able to swing a trip up to Chicago on the company's dime.

By "know" you mean "read something the wrote on a stall door", don't you?
