    Never been to the aquarium, but I'd love to sometime. Museum's really cool - great Eqyptian exhibits. However, went this summer and paid 20 bucks for the temporary "underground world" exhibit that they had. dohnt doo dat.

    Love that place!

    My fav pie is Giorano's. Giordano's World Famous Stuffed Pizza

    I also took a boat tour on the river around Chicago and then it goes out into the lake. I liked it a lot.

    Oh, and if you can go to the Board of Trade or the CME, that would be good too. I interned on the CBOT floor for a summer before electronic trading. It was great.

    One of my favorite places in the world is the Art Institute.

    Ed DeBevic's is fun, as is Dick's, for places to eat.

    Re: Trip to Chicago

    Definitely go to the top of the hancock building at night and have a cocktail. The bar has floor to ceiling windows and the view of the city is very cool. Oh and prepare to pay ten dollars for a beer fourteen for a glass of wine or five dollars for a bottled water.

    If you like seafood, McCormick and Schmicks was very good and you should go to the bar in Sofitel ,the scenery is unbelievable. If you want a good dive bar, Mothers was down and dirty.

    Gino's East is amazing as is Giordano's. Both are within walking distance from where you are. Gino's has a "patty" style sausage pizza... Sausage in every bite as the patty literally covers the entire pie!!! Making me hungry!
