Overnight in Chicago in Feb & 1/2 price theatre TKTS?

Greetings!

First trip to Chicago, and it will be the end of February. Brrr! (Quick overnight with some girlfriends.)

Will book a hotel with Priceline, but would love to know where we can find half price tickets to musicals/theatre on the day of the show. Suggestions? It looks like a lot of things will be closed, or not open yet; not sure what we'll be able to find for "bargains."

Any recommendations for fine dining? We'd love to unwind in a nice place with great atmosphere and service after a fun day shopping and theatre-going.

Thanks in advance for any tips!

For discount theatre tickets, check www.hottix.org. You can find a listing of everything that will be playing at the League of Chicago Theatres www.chicagoplays.com.

You can find restaurants at www.metromix.com. Its searchable by cuisine, neighborhood or price.

It would be easier to make specific suggestions if you say how many people "we" are and what price range and cuisine you have in mind.

There are literally hundreds of restaurants in The Loop and North Michigan/River North areas.

My current favorite source for discount tickets is goldstar.com, which lets you buy specific dates for half price online. Very convenient.

What's your restaurant budget? If you want to go high-end, my suggestion would be Spiaggia, where the Obamas had a romantic evening right after the election. Wonderful food and atmosphere.

Thanks for your replies! So, we're 3 woman around 50, not looking for a romantic spot, but good food, service, atmosphere, and people-watching. I suppose around $75-$95 per person would be fine. Hey, it's just one meal, so not a life and death situation, but I just figured someone out there would know of the quintessential Chicago restaurant for 3 newcomers out on the town.

Goldstar sounds great Marylinn!
