    A Couple of friends and I are flying to Chicago to get out of Austin for a weekend Fri thru Sun. . . Any Must see or things to do?

    The Group Im going with is usually up for anything from museums, watching a game (Sorry Cubs), or dancing till dawn. . .

    The marathon is happening on sunday. Plenty of museums around would suggest the art museum if you are into that and then look around Grant Park. Navy Pier can have some cool stuff going on too sometimes, if its nice out.

    And the Hancock observation deck does lunch too, great food and great views. I've been up there twice for lunch.

    Also Museum of Science and Industry is a great visit. They always have cool exibits, and they have a 5 story omnimax theater with cool movies, it's been a few years since I've seen it, but it's not for those with motion sickness icon_redface.gif Looking at their site it says the theater will reopen on 10-13 from some renovations. The art museum is really cool to visit. When I went a couple years ago it was kinda cool seeing all different artists, and seeing places where they filmed Ferris Bueller's Day Off !

    And I agree, Michigan Ave has some great shopping!

    For night life you can't beat boystown bars. There's a club for everyone's taste.

    Hope ya'll have a good time!
