Sunday I get in around 2:30. Want to hit Shedd Aquarium and then possibly Dick's Last Resort Bar.
Never heard of Dick's Last Resort, but Shedd is cool.
Monday, meetings all day and a business dinner until 7:30 and then the Bears are in Dallas for MNF. Want to hit a good sports bar to watch the game. I'm staying at the Hard Rock on Michigan (Magnificent Mile).
I like Stout, which is right around there. It's more of a local scene than, say, the ESPN Zone, which is also around you. What are you looking for in a bar -- there are a ton of sports bar there and they'll all have the game.
Tuesday night, Meetings all day and then a brief reception...thinking of ducking out of the reception early and catching a Cubs game. Two of the worst teams in baseball (Cubs/Astros) so tickets are PLENTIFUL and CHEAP. I would just like to see a game a Wrigley.
Here's my question... worth it just to say I've ben to Wrigley? Every section has seats availble with 2nd tier at $1.00 per ticket and some lower level infield seats at $20.00.
Make sure you sit in the sun, for lack of a better description. There are many seats in that stadium that are under the overhang above you. Think old Mellon Arena.
Also want to hit Billy Goat Tavern (the originators of the Cheeburger, Cheeburger skit from SNL) and the home of the Cubs curse.
It's nothing special, but if you want to see Navy Pier (which I don't necessarily recommend), you can kill two birds with one stone.

That makes sense, just didn't know if sitting out in the bleachers was a "thing".
They are a "thing," for sure. I usually sit there, but so do a lot of young drunk people.
