Going to be in Chicago for Invoking Death Fest, first time being in Chicago. Have access to a car, what are some cool things to do during the day? Will be in early Friday so I have all Friday morning/afternoon, same with Saturday.

Forget about the car take ubers/taxis traffic is a standstill at all times and parking is outrageous. Lots of stuff/out of the way shops full of neat shit downtown and on the outskirts of downtown. Enjoy avoiding the agressive bums that litter the streets however.

Best burger I've had is at Kuma's Corner. Be prepared to wait though, it's pretty busy.

Think I saw Bourdain or someone else do a tour of the city for food.

Looked good.

I agree with this. Driving and parking anywhere in Chicago is a nightmare.

As mentioned before, Kuma's Corner has great burgers and is metal themed, but last time I was up there Al's Beef's Italian beef sandwich was absolutely outstanding to me, and I'd recommend it to any avid carnivore. Otherwise, there are a number of okay record stores and a bunch of great breweries all around the city, if you're in to that sort of thing.

The wait can be obnoxious, and Lock Down has equally as good burgers, better tunes/vibes (they're both metal-ish joints, Kuma's always plays stoner doom when i've been there while Lock Down was playing Priest/Maiden when I went), and much less crowded. My only regret is that I didn't find Lock Down sooner.

I personally prefer lockdown for their burgers over Kumas. Kumas is okay but lockdown is great. I'll be there one of those days before the show.

I made the mistake of coming in Thursday afternoon so I will have a lot of downtime as well. Unfortunately seems like doing anything in the city will be inconvenient/expensive since the hotel/venue are way out in the burbs....

It's been years since I've been there, but Zakopane was a cool Polish dive bar.

I'm staying right by the airport (O'Hare), how far out from the downtown area is that. I would rather check out what's on the outskirts than downtown itself

if your in a hotal by ohare airport just take a 24 hour hotel shuttle to ohare jump on the blueline [runs 24 hours}
and that will take u to downtown Chicago..i do that everytime I am there I think a all day train pass is still 5 bucks

Since I'm not flying and they said the group rate would still be honored at the original hotel (Best Western, Hillside) I will be staying there, so I'm not sure of the best way to get around from there.
