I'd comparison shop the observation decks at the Hancock vs. the Sears.
The former, imho, is a nicer view.
Other possible venues for a dinner reception: Lincoln Park Zoo, the
Notabaert, MSI, Art Institute, Field, Adler, Shedd, Navy Pier, MCA,
Orchestra Hall, Soldier Field... Hey, apparently the U-505 sub seats 120!
There's also a number of Chicago Park District locales:
For other social events: if the weather's hot, I propose a trip to an ice
rink. Also, the Chicago Architecture Foundation has a variety of tours
And don't forget Fermilab. Though I don't know if there's much to do
besides look at the Buffalo herd.
I wonder if Stern Pinball offers tours of their factory.
