Thanks everyone for the tips. We had a great time, had very little expectations and they were far exceeded. Such a great city, amazing beauty, and food that gave me and additional 3 inches on my gut. I ate a whole medium pizza myself:whistle, on two separate occasions. Had one at Giordano's and one at East Gino's. Definitley going to visit again but this time with the kids.
One day when I am rich enough, I hope to buy a condo in downtown Chicago.
