I'm traveling to Chicago soon and I was hoping to get some hot spots for eating during my visit.  I was wondering if you could give me five or so and recommend things to eat.

Hi Paul, I see you had a comment to Mike Adams, so I though I should drop you a line. Last Time I commented to you was when your profile was hard to read, Glad U changed it, it's better on my eyes. i was in Chicago 1n 1996 for a short stop over, apart form the Taxi ride I had, all was great over there, I would go back to America in a heart beat. Hope U are well and hope it stays that way.
Cheers for now - Leo
