Goin to Chicago

I'm taking a trip out to the windy city at the end of the month, so that I can check the mother f***er out! I might potentially move there but that's besides the point. Do any of you guys or gals have any suggestions for things that are an absolute must see or do, while I'm there. Thanks VINERS!!!!!

@inferiorego: Because Chicago is a playground fueled by Beer :) 
 
@Tyler Starke: What are you into/what's your budget?  Where are you staying? 
 
You can do the normal stuff... go see Wrigley Field, go get a drink at the top of the Hancock Building.  Maybe you can check out a 'Hawks game, if you're into hockey.  Shedd Aquarium is always fun, but a little pricey.  Lincoln Park Zoo, (but sometimes they are out of animals.) I really love the Garfield Conservatory, especially in the winter. 
 
If you are of age I can give you a list of my favorite bars. 
 
If you have the money/time you can check out Improv Olympics, Second City or Blue Man Group... all great!
 
There is a lot to do here and whatever you decide to do, you'll have a great time, for sure!

I'm 24 years old and I'm sure I can find my own bars but I wondered what else I could do there that was touristy and lame cause I dig that kinda stuff. I'm meeting a couple of friends out there and I may very well move out there . I'm almost at the end of my college career and i've been offered a job there and at my home so im torn, anyways I'm going to go visit! wish me luck

@Tyler Starke: I'll mention one bar, that's it. Tonic Room on Halsted and Fullerton in Lincoln Park. My buddy owns it and it's a chill place.
 
Take a boat tour of the city, see the magic bean on Madison and Michigan. (One block east of Graham Crackers Comics on Madison!) Museum of Science and Industry on the south side is awesome. Mag Mile has some nice shopping if you're into that, which is north of Madison on Michigan. Go to the top of the Sears (I refuse to call is Willis) Tour. 
 
There's just a few ideas

I'm going to Northwestern University, which is just north of Chicago. I always tell people to got Millennium Park and Navy Pier. Trust me, you'll love it there.
