If you're not too hungover, you can join the annual paddle down the North Branch of the Chicago River with fellow canoe enthusiasts. It's a free event if you have your own canoe; you can rent one too if you call in advance. This page from the friendly Chicagoland Canoe Base (probably Chicago's best canoe store) has all the details.
