Tell me about Chicago...

I'm leaving for Chicago on friday for work. Five or six days mostly spent in the convention center but with some free mornings and some free evenings. I'm planning to hit the Art Institute of Chicago while I'm there. And I read "Devil in the White City" last summer so I may try to take a bus out to Jackson Park where that takes place.

Anyone have any other ideas? Any must see places? Must eat restaurants? Must drink bars? Crazy oddball things that tourists don't usually get to see?
