Chicago - there for 3 days. Where do I eat?

We'll be in Chicago for 3 short days in June for our college reunion at nerd school, aka University of Chicago. We'll be spending one day joining in the alumni festivities, checking out how much the campus has changed, eating at our old haunts. But the weekend is ours to spend freely.

Tell me, SE folks, where would you go/what would you eat in 2 short days in Chicago? We'll be in downtown Chicago (probably close to the Mile) at a hotel, and we are all about taking the El and Metra to get to places. What are your recommendations - high and low ranges!
