So I’m sitting here in my hotel at Hubbard and Wabash, having plumped for $10/day for high-speed Internet access. Since I’m in the home of the Dope, I figured I’d ask the locals for some advice.
I’m here until Wednesday, the 12th, for the Print01 convention/trade show. There’s another guy from my company here, but he’s staying in a different hotel and I don’t know how much time we’ll spend together outside of show hours. My days are pretty much taken up with meetings and things, but I expect my evenings will be my own. I also don’t have anything scheduled for Sunday, except that I have bought a ticket to the Braves-Cubs game at Wrigley.
So if you were pretty much limited to the downtown area, and were hanging out by yourself in the evenings, where would you go/eat and what would you do? I’m more of a film/theatre/museum/bookstore sort than a club-hopper, but I do like blues and rock provided it’s not someplace where I have to impress a doorman in order to get in. Without some decent recommendations, I may have to hang out with the same vendor types I’ve been seeing at these shows for the last dozen years.
