I can take my wife to any audio show, anywhere- as long as the facility is connected to a casino.

Depending on how much you want her to spend to offset your "wishlist" after the show, she should check out Michigan Avenue. It's about an hour east in the heart of downtown Chicago.

Ohare is a hike from the city of Chicago - you're looking at about a 60 minute drive during rush hour, if not more.

There is a Fashion Outlet mall, there is the magnificent mile, there is water tower, there is Oak street in Chicago.

Many good restaurants.

I would aim to go to Bob Chinn's for seafood, go to RPM Italian for italian, go to Au Chevelle for burgers late night, go to Girl and Goat for dinner also.

Just down the road from the Hotel is the Blue line, which will take you straight to the mag mile area. You can get off @ Washington, head to Millenium Park, then walk North along Michigan Ave.
