Looking for good Chicago addresses
I'm planning a 5-day trip to Chicago with my gf over the holidays and I'm looking for suggestions for:
- a nice boutique hotel, preferably in an old converted skyscraper in the Loop,
- addresses for good jazz and comedy clubs
- addresses for real soul food (I don't want to leave Chicago without having some real fried chicken)
- any architectural tour, aside from the obvious well-known ones, that would be worth checking out.
Thanks in advance - I'm taking my camera and a few memory sticks with me.
