    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    The ESPN Zone restaurant on Michigan Ave is pretty fun. The ladies in the group will love the shopping on the Magnificent Mile.

    For the best Italian Beef you'll ever have you should hit any Portillo's you see. Ed Debevic's is a realy fun restuarant/diner to take the family to...the staff is rude and they dance on the counters and tables. If you want a good prime rib and don't mind spending some cash, then Lawry's is the place for you. Stay away from the South Side of the city.

    If there are any little girls with you, the American Girl store would be fun.

    I'm a fan of the Museum of Science and Industry, but it's not really something for a day trip.

    I visit Chicago around twice a year. Some of the best food int he country as far as I am concerned. I would say visiting downtown is safe and there is tons to do. The Shed Aquarum, Feld Musuem and Art Musuem are great.
    Stay away from the south side. It is like a war zone.
