Toddler-Friendly Lunch Recs in the Loop TODAY

Seven on State (7th floor of Macy's) (State and Randolph/State and Washington). You can have ramen (not the best, but does the trick) or eat at Rick Bayless' place, plus a few other serviceable choices. You can definitely walk the toddler around as everyone else eats. Lots to see.

Suggestions for light appetizers to enjoy in the hotel suite

Any opinions on the party trays from Firefly?
Platters from
Rincon de Buenos Aires on Spring Mountain?
Roly's Bakery finger foods?

I think that Whole Foods would be a good fallback, but would love to experience some of the local eateries.

The In n Out idea sounds fun. I think most of the people have access to it (but as someone originally from CA and now in a state with no In n Out), but for the ones who don't, it would be a good treat.

Thank you, that is a good idea. However, we are trying to keep costs down, so hoping that we'd get some good tips on a local restaurant/store so we can do it without a hotel premium.

Suggestions for light appetizers to enjoy in the hotel suite

My friends and I be throwing a bridal shower in the suite of our hotel room for about 20 people. We will be serving alcohol (in abundance) and wanted to also have food. Any suggestions on where we can purchase delicious, light appetizers? Sushi, empanadas, sandwiches, any of it can work (all the above were examples chosen at random). We will have a car so can pick up at a restaurant if needed.

Any cuisine works, brownie points if it's pretty. Desserts would be great too!

Thanks for any help!

Best treats to bring back from Japan?

When we were in Takasaki, we drove in an area where there were udon shops which had handmade udon noodles drying outside. We brought back a few boxes of udon for our parents, which were very well received. The boxes were lovely. We purchased the type which would stay good for about a month (versus one week).

Oven proof strainer

Will this come in handy? If I purchase one, am I being suckered into buying something simply because it's on sale? It looks heavy and doesn't seem that practical for using on an every day basis.
