Chicago for 21st birthday

Jump to last reply

We are taking my boyfriends daughter and a few of her friends to Chicago for her 21st birthday in January (and I know weather will be horrible but thats where she wanted to go). I've never been to Chicago and have tried to do some research but it all seems so overwhelming. We mainly plan on eating, shopping and of course, drinking! We are going from a Friday to a Monday so I need to find three places for lunch and dinner and any cool bars that we need to hit for a fun 21st celebration.

A few things that may help:
We are staying on Michigan Ave.
We definitely want to go to at least one italian resturant, one steakhouse and one pizza place.
We don't mind spending money on food but since we will be with 21 year olds we don't want to go to a $50 entree restaurant every night we are there.
So far I've looked into Gibsons, RPM Italian, Luxbar, and Lou Mallnati's.
I've heard there are a lot of bars on Rush and Division.

So any help at all would be greatly appreciated!! And sorry for being so vague.
