My boyfriend is attending a medical conference at UIC this weekend & I am tagging along. I have been to Chicago once & loved it, but I am completely unfamiliar with this area.
How far is this from M. Mile shopping? How much are cabs to this area? Or can I take the El? I've read that our hotel (Marriott) is near the Racine El stop; do we just take the blue line from O'Hare or do we have to change trains? The map showed a loop...
Also, we love Irish pubs & small clubs/restruants with live jazz/swing. Any recommendations?
