I just got back from my first trip to Chicago. I really thought I was going to be thoroughly annoyed by Cubs fans, but I wasn't.
In fact, I sat in a mostly Cardinals fan section and thank goodness I went to the game when the Cardinals won.
I also did a little shopping with my friend Emily
and had Chicago style pizza for the first time. Good thing I don't live there. I could eat that everyday. Oh yeah, and Old Style isn't bad either.
I saw Mike Ditka at his restaurant and hung out with former Blues player Bernie Federko and his wife -who looks like Terri Hatcher. But I also met a super nice woman named Jennifer. She found my wallet at the game, called the station to tell them to call and let me know she had it.
I ended up meeting her at Dick's Last Resort which is where the Federkos were. It was fun. Great band and atmosphere -a little on the cheesy side- but I can admit that I'm a little cheesy, too.
This is Jennifer.
By the way, Jennifer, thank you again for getting my wallet to me and dancing with me!
