Hi! My husband and I are going for a quick trip to Chicago from Toronto. Our trip coincides with Lollapallooza - I didn't realize at the time but I would have booked anyway to make use of the long weekend :)
1. Will Lolla affect our stay at all? Will we be able to go visit Grant Park?
2. We'll be staying at E Wacker/Michican (Club Quarters by Wacker). We'll have a car but we're leaning towards walking to Lincoln Park Zoo & Wrigley Field (cabbing back if we get tired)... is that do-able / would the walk be through "safe" neighbourhoods?
3. We'll arrive around midnight Friday Aug 1 - any ideas of what dinner we can have delivered to the hotel? The closest Lou Maltani closes at 11pm. Plus probably shouldn't eat something too heavy.
4. Below is what I'd like to see/eat, I've grouped it based on what's nearby. Maybe I can't do it all but that's ok! Would love to get any feedback - e.g. if there's a best time to see a certain attraction.
Thanks in advance!!
