Need to fit in Wicker Park/Bucktown area for an afternoon visit. Looking for input where there are ? marks, and also just general comments. I have never been to Chicago so any info re: timing and location would be helpful of course. Not sure where we are staying - possibly Palomar, or an even more upscale place with a pool if rates come down (Trump, Four Seasons or Waldorf). Thanks very much!!
