I would definately check out St. Alfred and Overtime. Two great spots for kicks. Also hit up NikeTown you will see some pretty cool things that arent for sale.

I'm planning on taking a trip to Chicago, too. I'll be going in October for my birthday. Not sure, but I believe the NBA season starts at the end of October. Anyone know what day the first Bulls game might be (as in on a Monday, Wednesday, etc)?

Also, what are some areas/things I should avoid. I'm not even going to bring a hat with me out of fear I'll wear it the wrong way in the wrong area :lol:

For real though...

The NBA schedules havent come out yet so theres no way to tell what day they start. Im guessing sometime around halloween.

Sorry to bring up a old post but I figure to post here then make another thread. I am going to Chicago in late October as well. I know there is a Bulls preseason game and Bears are on a bye week and baseball is in the World Series. Anything else worth going to or seeing in Chicago? I know there is that bean, Sears, the piers but any cool eats that is famous or even some night spots? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hot Dogs: Portillos its downtown on Ontario. 

Pizza: Gino's east (block west of Portillos down on Ontario) Lou Malnaiti's & Girodanos have the best deep dish pizza both downtown as well...

Nightlife: You can always go to Wicker Park and bar hop, check out the vibe. They have Crocodile Lounge, spots got an upstairs and downstairs, with every drink purchase you get a receipt and ticket, you can take it to the back of the upstairs bar and the chef will make you a personal pizza for free with the receipt 
 Musics like Hip-Hop, 90's hip hop, downstairs some reggae and dance music... They have some other spots to all around there its just Milwaukee avenue flooded with spots, there's an arcade on Milwaukee ave a few blocks down from Crocodile called "Emporium" they have old school games and a bar there, relatively cheap too if you wana check that out.... There's a spot by portillos too on Ontario called "Castle" touristy spot but its ******g HUGE lol like 5 floors they play everything...

Saint Alfreds is across the street from Crocodile lounge too, might catch random people camping out if you swing by there on a Friday and there's a saturday AM drop... lot of stuff to do out here, hopefully its not too cold yet bruh... Hoodies and longsleeves a must....
