My wife and I will be staying downtown at the Union League Club on Jackson on Wednesday Oct 18th and leaving Saturday afternoon. I'll be attending seminars on Thurs and Fri so we'll only have the evenings (after 4:30) to do things together.
I've been to Chicago about ten years ago so I had to do some research to find a few things for us to do, but I wanted to hear from the experts. Here is a list of my plans - feel free to let me know if I'm on the right track or if I should try something else.
Wednesday Oct 18th:
Since my wife loves stained glass I was going to take her to the Navy Pier to the Stained Glass Window Museum. She can also pick up a few souveniers on the Pier. I was also planning to book a Mystic Blue Dinner Cruise to wrap up the evening with food and dancing. Let me know if these things are cool or if they are just lame tourists traps.
Thursday Oct 19th:
After having dinner with my vendors, I wanted to take her to a Blues or Jazz club near the Hotel. I was thinking Buddy Guy's or Andy's. Any suggestions are welcome.
Friday Oct 20th:
I wanted to take her shopping on Michigan Ave. and maybe make our way to Coq d'Or for a bite and few cocktails. Later I wanted to hit a nice club - The last time I was here I partied with Dennis Rodman, Hulk Hogan and Eddie Vedder at Excalibur. From what I hear that place has gone down hill (too bad). I need advice on this one. I've read decent reviews on tons of bars (Crobar, Sound-Bar, Enclave, etc..). My wife and I like to dance to some of the latest music, but we also like smooth R&B tunes (oldies).
Saturday we're checking out and heading back home to Columbus.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
