    Plenty of 24 hour gyms, where you staying? The weather will be in the mid-50's this weekend.

    MOTHER FUCKING DAWT.

    Lou Malnati's is also a major contender. I myself would pick Gino's because their Italian dressing is SOOOOO fucking good. Their pizza is amazing too, but the other two places mentioned are equally comparable pizza wise (I prefer Ginos too, but others like Lou's a lot more).

    Lou Malnati's is the place to go for the best Chicago Pizza IMO.

    As for stuff to do... what are you looking for? If you want to hit up bars go the DePaul/Lincoln Park area. Awesome bars and an awesome area.

    If you want a good club I recommend Enclave.

    There's just so much to do in Chicago. You won't have ANY trouble keeping busy. And you can take the blue line from O' Hare (where your hotel is) right into downtown.
    Weather will be mostly sunny and in the 50's/60's.

    Sears Tower of course, and go check out lake Michigan as well while you're there.

    Cold and windy is how is was when I was there.

    im home :wiggle:
    giordanos was awesome :bowdown:.
    downtown chicago was beautiful.
    i saw the lake, i saw the "fountain".
    but it wasn't that cold, or maybe i was too bundled up.
    and the hotel was hot and stuffy the entire time. they either had the heater on, or just no air circulation at all.

    overall it was great, wish i could of stayed longer.
    i came back sick though :hs:
