Thanks all. We're only going to Navy Pier because that's there the boat tour leaves from....thought we'd hit the ferris wheel etc too as we will have the GO Chicago card and they'll be free.

Are we still wasting our time at Navy Pier if we literally only do the cruise then the ferris wheel/lighthouse/carousel?

Any other good eats around the hotel, United Center, Field Museum or MSM?

Where should we go for the Friday & Saturday night dinner?
Friday night could be anywhere within a mile or two of the hotel.
Saturday dinner would be nice if it was close to the United Center.

Thanks!!!!

Hi All,

The wife & I are coming to your fair city 10/23-10/25.
Here is what I have planned.
Please critique itinerary and make meal recomendations.
We are coming in at 930am Friday and leave b4 breakfast on Sunday.
Staying at Intercontinental but don't let that influence your ideas, they're free nights.
We're looking for non-high end places.
We'll be walking or taking public transit everywhere.
We're 30somethings.
Places without screaming kids running around would be nice.
Want to try local joints.
Must have -at least- one meal with a good chicago dog, and italian beef.
Dinners could be Italian, Pizza, Polish, PubGrub, American, etc.
No Indian or similar foods.
Please no fancy-places.
Let's stay under $20p for each meal.

I know the schedule is tight but we're trying to get it all in!!
