Leaving For Joliet, IL

Tonight after work I'll be leaving for Joliet, Il to soak up the sun and enjoy a National Mustang Racing Association car show and drag race on Saturday.  The event will be held at the Route 66 Raceway and sponsored by Nitto Tires.

This isn't the first year I've been, but it's been several years since I've been to any car show.  Really looking forward to it and spending a little time in Chicago while I'm up that way.  No doubt I'll find my way down to the beer gardens on the Navy Pier, but does anyone else have any suggestions on what to do in Chicago?
