Thanks to some good suggestions my wife and I had a good time in Chicago last weekend.
We stayed at the Sheraton which is a nice place. I told the guy at the desk it was our anniversary so he upgraded us for free to a suite (pretty sweet) that overlooked the river, Lake Michigan, and the city.
Friday eve we checked out Navy Pier and then ate at Shula's Steakhouse in the hotel, but that turned out to be a mistake. The steak was OK (I've had much better), but the place was totally overpriced. I walked out of there with a $120 tab for 2 steaks, two sides, and one drink & tip. Damn!
Sat. we shopped Mich. ave (not my idea of a good time, but still was neat), and in the evening we ate dinner at a nice Italian place called Cantare, reccommended to us by the hotel concierge. The place was nice and the food was pretty good. I've been to Italy a couple times so I know good Italian. After we went up to the lounge on the 96th floor of the Hancock for some drinks. Got a window seat, and it was a great atmosphere.
In all it was a nice time. I was a bit pissed when we left and I went to pick up the car and got hit with a $64 parking bill that I wasn't expecting. Oh well, welcome to the big city, expect to pay. I guess I'm more used to traveling for work where they pick up the expenses and I don't ever have to think about it.
Thanks again for your suggestions.
