Hubby, our boys (ages 2 & 4) and myself went to Chicago from Thursday, July 7th – Sunday, July 10th. Since we stayed in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin the week before this, my husband and I were able to catch a Cubs/White Sox game July 1st at Wrigley. We drove into town and were running a little late, so we wanted to park as close as possible. We noticed people holding “parking” signs were ushering cars down the side streets, so that’s where we went. We got flagged down an alley and were parked in a single car garage behind apartments/condos. We ended up paying $30 to park and were just 2-4 blocks from the stadium. We sat about halfway between home plate and third base in the very last row of the stadium. It was fascinating to be in this stadium with so much history. While the game was going on, I googled Wrigley facts and read facts to my husband, learning what “Hey Hey” meant on the foul pole, how the ivy came about and other interesting things. I especially loved how people were watching the game from atop the buildings across the street. I thought it added so much character to the park. During the game I also had my first Italian beef sandwich (plain, since I don’t like peppers and onions). It was good and I made a mental note to get another Italian beef while in Chicago. Unfortunately, the Cubs lost, but we still had a great time.
Days 1-3 to follow in separate posts.
