SO I'm headed over to Chicago on Sunday.
Pretty much planned stuff as much as I ever plan.
Just a few queries!
First of all, I'm breaking a habit of a lifetime and not getting public transport from an airport. Due to needing to be someplace Sunday early evening, I'll probably take a cab from O'Hare. Staying at Days Inn (Diversey Pkwy) Lincoln Park. I've read an average of $35-40 to downtown, is it going to be similar cost to Lincoln Park?
Also, decided the best travel pass for me to get is the 7 day CTA one, can I just buy this from a vending machine at any station?
Any suggestions for nice (but not really posh!) bars in Mag Mile, loop area, to just sit and have a drink and people watch / relax. Not so much night time, but afternoon after hours of walking about! I'm in my 30's, female, don't really want 'pubs' so much, just some nice places where it's perfectly normal for someone to sit by themself and have a drink!
Also, any suggestions on places to buy sugar free / diabetic chocolate? I found one place on Mag Mile (Teuscher), also Sweet Factory has some. But other suggestions welcome if anyone happens to know.
Finally - the weather. A friend in Minnesota just told me that it's gonna be, and I quote 'Hell frozen over cold from Sunday night'. I looked at Weather Underground, an it does seem to be dipping in temp on Sunday. But of course, I can only look a few days ahead. Is a major colder than normal snap being predicted for next week?
