I'll be heading to Chicago for a long weekend in a few months (probably early October). I don't care about going to a baseball game or the typical tourist traps.
Things like foodie restaurants, mixologist bars, and microbreweries are good. Off-the-wall shops, architectural oddities, and artsy neighborhoods with random boutique-type shops are all preferable things, too.
What would you do? Everything I see travel-wise pretty much recommends all the same tourist stuff.
