Dinner and football? - 12/29/13 - Nicollet Mall

We are coming to your fair city on 12/29 and staying at the Hyatt on Nicollet Mall.

We are looking for suggestions, within walking distance, for dinner and a place to watch the Sunday Night game.

They can be separate places or the same.

After the travel day, we'll be interested in "tasty and fun" not "trendy and upscale".

Any advice that can be provided will be appreciated.

  1. You probably don't need to find a place to watch the Sunday Night Football...there isn't one, at least none scheduled.

    1. John is right that the latest game is scheduled to start at 3.25pm CST.

      Here's a recent downtown thread -- all the hotels are close enough that walking distance for one is walking distance for all:

      1. Close to the Hyatt with comfort style food and televisions is Brit's Pub.

          Many thanks, we have actually been to Brit's and that was on our radar.

        2. I am not convinced there is a Sunday night game on the 29th. But if there is, and it turns out to be The Beloved vs. the Packers, then you might take the light rail down to Chris and Rob's Chicago Taste Authority. It is near the 42nd street Light Rail stop, and shows the Bears on a large screen. The dogs and beefs are decent.

              The Packers and Bears will likely play the night game on the 29th IF it is the deciding game for the division title.
