Anyhoo.... I'm going to start off with a post about one of my last days of my vacation. My fiance has an aunt who lives in Old Town in Chicago and we stayed with her for a couple of days till we flew out of O'Hare and the first night we hit up Twin Anchors which is this awesome little, yet quite famous, rib joint a few blocks from her apartment.
Then after dinner we headed down the block to Marge's Still for after dinner drinks.
Then it was off to bed and sleep off the beer, so I could drink more beer at Wrigley Field.
I was wrong when I posted that we were going April 3rd it was actually April 2nd. The second game of the year.
Here's what my ticket looked like..
Here is Big Z warming up. It was a fun day. Although the Cubs trailed the Pirates most of the day.
We also got to see the return Kerry Wood who took over for Zambrano and finished off the 7th inning and Carlos Marmol who had a perfect 9th to get the save.
It was a fairly one sided game till the 8th inning when the Cubs poured it on and took advantage of Evan Meek and drove in 5 runs to put the Cubbies ahead for good.
And a few more shots of the field and score board.
After the game we ended by heading over to Yak-Zies for some wings and a few more beers before heading back and watching the Final Four.
Next my visit to Lambeau to start the trip.
