Yeah we are meeting friends there for nye. Chicago has been on my list for awhile, and even though I am only going to get about 30% of the experience I am still pumped to get there!Welcome and the trip looks amazing. One comment - as someone living in Chicago, there is really nothing going on in the city right now as the COVID restrictions have shut down all the museums and many of the restaurants are down as well. Those open are on restricted hours, usually take out only (winter is kind of incompatible with outdoor dining). Unless you're meeting friends for NYE I would save the miles and head west instead of north.
