I have been complimenting the Rangers-Pens game or the stadium series in Chicago. I was thinking either could be cool. Any recommendations??
I can't speak to games in Pittsburgh and the night life there, but Chicago is a step above for great food (not the crap you see on the food channels -- I'm talking about real restaurants) and fans of jazz and blues, plays, museums, etc.

The date for this game was forced by the Olympics. March 1... you're more likely to get cold and rain than freezing and clear, although the latter are possible all the way up to April 1st roughly. That said, if the weather does suck and the game is cut short or whatever, there is plenty to do indoors by day and night. You'll need to have some cash ready for pricey cab fairs or parking (if you're renting a car), but it's a great town (New York sucks -- especially their pizza, deep dish or thin crust).

PM me if you decide to get tickets and I'll hook you up with some good restaurants you can go to during your stay, and maybe a jazz club or something if you're into that scene.
