I was there a few years back, a guy from our Chicago office who plays blues took us on the Blues tour that white tourist never get to see.  We hit all the blues juke joints in some bad neighborhoods but had a great time.  Ate real soul food and drank a lot of Gin and juice and saw some really good blues.  Then late at night he took us to BluesChicago (or something like that) where all the hotels send tourists wanting to hear blues.  It was like a bad movie.  Plus the drinks tripled in price.

We also did the regualr tourists things like a boat tour, the Art Museum, Wrigley Field, and shopping on Michigan Avenue.
