Nope. Just taxis, trains, and buses. I fly in at 1pm on Monday and my training is 8-5 Tuesday-Thursday, so I won't have much time in the evenings either.

Unless someone has a better plan? If you know of better places easily accessed by the metra I'm all for it. I just don't want to make things too complicated.

Essentially it's a "Search Nearby" for Union Station looking for "beer". Looks like there are a few places within walking distance of Union Station.

I don't know those places all that well, but via beeradvocate, yelp, etc you should be able to figure out where to find the best food and brews.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm definitely going here: http://www.oldtownpourhouse.com/beer-pages-152.php

and here:http://farmhousechicago.com/farmhouse-chicago-beer-menu/

and then I'll stop at the Binny's on the way back to union station. The nice thing is I can take the train to get to all of them.

Who thinks I can drink them all before I leave in 3 days?
