As far as watching the game on saturday...any of the bars on Rush & Division street, or at Dave & Busters on clark near north side.
Navy Pier is a must...lots to do and if you have kids with you they have a ton to do there...even a childrens museum. lots to eat and novelty things to do there. Also think about a Dinner cruise on the Spirit of Chicago that runs off of Navy Pier.
While here you must have Pizza...try the original Uno's Pizzeria.
Also Portillo's Beef (you must have while here) it is located at clark street at near north side. Must have a Chicago style hot dog also.
For dining at night: just about anywhere you run across is good in Chicago...one of my favorites is "Fogo De Chao". All you can eat Meat and the salad bar is fantastic.
All the museums are great. The Shedd Aquarium is a good place also. The majority of museums are near each other (within Walking Distance) with the exception of the Science museum.
Zanies comedy club is fun and they are on wells and North Ave. (again Near north side)
Downtown ("the Loop") at Daley Plaza they have some shops set up at this time of year for halloween, Food, crafts, hot cider, etc. Take a walk around the downtown area, the architecture is very nice. State Street has alot of landmark shops such as Marshall Fields, Carsons, etc. and the art museum is right on Michigan Ave.
Greek town has some great resturants and is close to downtown...about the 200 south block of Halstead street.
Another area is Grant Park and Buckingham fountain. This has a great view of the lake and is near the Museums.
Millennium Park is just north of grant park and has some great features.
And of course the ole standby's The John Hancock building and the Sears Tower...both have Observation towers.
Hope you and your Family enjoy your stay. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
