if you're a native, pls let me know what I should be doing! I'm here for a few days, want to see/do some cool shit!!!! Also jsyk I am a small child so alcohol is a no-no (also because my fake id is trash ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
  1. Already going to Second City
  2. Already getting deep dish pizza
  3. Yee-haw, what else is there to do???
  4. Check out one of the "speakeasy" type underground bars such as 3 dots and a dash, untitled, or violet hour

  12. see if there is a good show at the empty bottle or whatever clubs have shows these days

  14. There's a city pass you can get that give you access to 2 or 3 museums and either the Hancock or Sears tower viewing decks
    Definitely worth the money! Shedd aquarium, field museum, art institute are all on there

  15. Lincoln Park Zoo
    Say hi to my polary bears. A free zoo in the middle of the city is delightful!
    Suggested by   @loriatx
  16. The Art Institute
    Can not recommend this enough. Especially Chagall Windows and all the Monets, but so much more. Then head over to "the Bean" and take lots of touristy photos. :)

  17. Ride the El and discover neighborhoods
    If the weather is nice (I'm no longer in Chicago) just explore.

  18. The Baha'i Temple
    It's in the 'burbs, but it really is spectacular.

  19. For the record, if you are on a tight budget: iO > Second City.
    You can't throw a hot dog in this town and not have a 4 person improv team pick it up and Yes And it.

  20. Billy Goat (get a cheezeborger at the original location *under* Michigan Ave). Can tie it in with a visit to the iconic Bean sculpture at Milenium Park & The Art Institute (best museum in the city)
    Suggested by   @TQ
  21. If Ed Debevic's is still around you MUST GO. You will not be disappointed.

  22. Early dinner at Girl and the Goat or Au Cheval, which are impossible to get into during peak hours but you can just walk in at 4:30pm or 5pm.
    Grab a drink at Lone Wolf after, then enjoy the rest of your night! Maybe go to Southport Lanes or Revolution Brewery (the actual brewery).

  23. Architecture boat tour and cinnamon buns at Ann Sathers. I'm a not a cinnamon roll person but these are legit!
    Suggested by   @lyndsalvarez
  24. Eat at The Publican restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

  25. Shedd Aquarium

  26. Drinks at the J Parker on top of the Lincoln Hotel after you visit the Lakefront Trail and stand in front of the marquee at Wrigley Field. Cheers to you and Chicago!
