Cheaper Eats….

Portillos Hot Dogs

Pizzeria Uno – will likely be an hour+ wait, but you can’t go wrong here for Chicago style pizza (Pizzeria Due is the same thing, and across the street)

  • 3.5 miles from McCormick

Eataly – Giant Italian grocery store and restaurants. Designed and opened by Mario Batali

Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder – Like a pizza pot pie. If you are headed to Wrigley, a great local spot to consider. No reservations required, but there could be a wait….but well worth it. Also – it’s right across the street from the famed “St. Valentine’s Day Massacre”


More Expensive Eats….

RPM Italian – One of Chicago’s premier hotspots, with great Italian food. Co-owned by the Rancic’s. Make reservations in advance, because they are hard to get.

Chicago Cut – Great steakhouse in a city full of great steak. Also has a great view of the river.

Girl & The Goat – Great dinner by Stephanie Izard of Top Chef fame. Located in the West Loop, with tons of great restaurants. Also needs advance planning.


Things to do….

Shedd Aquarium – An amazing destination on the museum campus. Aquarium overlooks the lake.

Wrigley Field – Home of the Cubbies. This year is our year!

  • 8.4 miles from McCormick

Chicago Architecture Foundation – River tour going through Chicago’s amazing architecture.


Fun Places to Eat & Drink.....

Untitled – A great space for eating or grabbing a drink. Usually there is a show going on of various sorts that is fun. Jazz, cabaret, etc. It’s always random and quite entertaining.

Hub 51 – Good food and drinks in the heart of River North. Lots of TV’s for sports fans.

Three Dots and a Dash – A Tiki bar in Chicago. Wildly popular and a great place to grab a fun drink. Plan in advance for reservations!

Howl at the Moon – Everyone who has attended a conference before knows this one. Touristy Piano bar with lots of energy.

Mercadito - Reccomended on twitter by Ali Mondragon (@alivsworld) for thier delish green drinks!
