    Yeah. Just bring your backpack or bag and stow it in there. The McDonald's downstairs is quite affordable but can get packed. Last year me and a friend and his wife went to Jimmy Johns a couple blocks away and it was pretty average priced. The pier is where crap is overpriced (like parking).

    There is also a pizzeria that is mid priced that sits across from the McDs.

    If I could I'd hit up a chi town pizzeria or hot dog joint regardless of price cause it's freakin chicago! :D  but overall pricing isn't really bad and yes you can bring in some cold food.

    yes you can. And you should. There's really no place really close to the con center to eat except the McDs. I usually walk about 5-10 minutes to this little italian place by State St.

    I'll be working artist alley and have planned for this show, NYCC, Wizard, Celebration 2 and 3. If you have any questions, let me know. A great con results from being prepared. Also, I highly recommend Around Comics podcast ep 122. It's a great "do's and don't" of going to a convention.

    I'll be hanging around AA with a few buds and maybe sitting at a few tables. Been going since it started (prefer the other hall they had the first year). Fun Con. Who're you, maybe I'll stop by and check out the goods. :) 

    BTW, the itailian place, do you know the name offhand? I'd like to take my fiance somewhere that screams chicago but I don't want to wander too far from McCormick.

    Unfortunately I do not. It's not at all fancy but a nice place to get something besides con food. But to get there, go north outside the giant front waterfall and follow street as it makes the bend to go west. Then head to the block past State St and it's on the south side of the street. If you hit the train overpass, you've gone to far.

    And I'll be working with Dan Khanna so he can operate the table and get work done at the same time.
