Full suggestions outside of food (and if you're up for walking a lot and just checking out cool places):
grant park - for a morning run, there's a 3.1m loop that wraps the shore
millenium park - epitome of frank gehry, BP bridge / pritzker pavilion
^^ if you're already there, walk a block north to Aqua Tower. trippy
art institute (also close) - renzo piano addition
the rookery - one of the oldest skyscrapers in the US
hancock / sears towers - skydecks (loop) i prefer hancock
IIT - mies van der rohe, close to chinatown and white sox (red line)
if you're driving: robie house, farnsworth, etc
ok. getting late - that's enough chicago porn for now.am i allowed to say porn? sorry mods!
