Visiting Chicago and need a foodie related gift!!

Garret's popcorn (although not up my alley) seems to be a local tradition/favorite.

Maybe a gift card to Giordannos?

A jar of gardiniera peppers is probably as Chi-town as it gets in terms of something for the pantry.

Best value for a butcher near downtown? looking for pork shoulder/boston butts

I'm looking to get a few bone-in Boston Butt/Pork Shoulder's for this weekend and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Whole foods wants $4/lb for them, Dominicks has them for a third of that but only had 20 lb packages. Was looking for two 6-8 lb'ers. I drive by the wholesale butchers all the time in the warehouse/west loop district, but don't know if I can just walk in there and get something that small. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Ceviche in town?

Where is the best Ceviche in the city? Anything good in River North/Gold Coast? Multiple variations would be a plus...

sorry if this has been discussed, the search function is currently down.
