I'm currently on an Amtrak, cruising along at the so-fast-you'll-shit 28 MPH (thanks to Norfolk Southern's recent "SLOW THE FUCK DOWN ON OUR SHITTY UNDER MAINTAINED TRACKS" decision). I'll be arriving in Chicago around 1130, and I fly out of O'Hare at 6:30.

What is there to do, aside from hopefully not being killed on the walk between Union Station and the CTL? Or at O'Hare?

I have the reverse situation next Saturday.

Tonite go to the Rivers casino , if you're into that. Other than that nothing to do around O'Hare if you're talking PM times.

Going from union station(financial area) to O'Hare you should be good. The problems are south of union station.

There are a couple of 4AMs close to public transporation and O'Hare , I would not recommend. If you want to Teasers on Higgins in Chicago and Shoeless Joe's on Higgins in Rosemont(not so close to CTA)

I appreciate the concern, but I'm one of those types that very rarely gets hungover. If I find that I might start to before a flight, I'll keep on drinking through it so I can pass out on the plane and wake up at my destination.

edit -just looked up all the information on O'hare and it's shops and such. Nearly everything closes at 9pm. Hell, McDonald's is only open until 11. Wonderful.

It's Chicago, second worst airport to Atlanta. With all the delays that airport has he could have Alcohol Poisoning and still be ok by the time the flight leaves.

Go to Gino's East and get you some Deep Dish Pizza or go to Goose Island Brewpub! If you like "heat" go to Jake Melnicks for Ghost Chili Wings.

if you ain't got a lot of shit to lug around with you go to Wrigleyville (neighborhood around Wrigley Field, easily accessed by train from airport), go to Goose Island Microbrew Pub and restaurant. If not, that are is full of bars and food. It's like a quarter mile of nothing but tits and ass.
