"Here on business/convention" Top 5 Page for this destination Chicago Favorite Tip by Dabs
Chicago General: 445 reviews and 517 photos
Favorite thing: For the Chicago visitor who is busy during the day at work or a convention, here are some things to do to fill your evenings:
Check out Hot tix for 1/2 price theater tickets, sold on the day of the performance. For locations and an idea of what comes up, www.hottix.org
On Tuesday nights in the summer, there are free movies in Grant Park
The Art Institute is open late, until 8 pm, on Thursday (as of 11/20/06) and is free from 5pm-8pm.
Go to the top of the Hancock for a great view of the lakefront, go to the bar instead of the observatory, you still have to buy a drink but it is less than the observatory and you get a drink.
Lots of movie theaters, several of which play older movies and indies. Check out the Music Box, Facets and the Gene Siskel Film Center.
Take a boat ride on Lake Michigan, visit the www.navypier.com website
And of course the obvious-EAT!
