My Dad’s First Visit to Wrigley Field

A while back a guy in my office emailled everyone in Chicago about some almost free Cubs tickets that were available. Many people in our office travel and have a Starwood Preferred Guest account and they were having a promo offering Cubs-Braves bleacher tickets for a prime “platinum” weekend game this past weekend. The face value of each ticket was $67 but if you used a few of your SPG points, you could get these tickets for about $1 each!. I jumped on it and got the max 4 tickets that I could get. I thought it would be fun to take my dad, since he’d never been to Wrigley Field, and maybe my brother and Amanda or one of the kids. My brother has been to the park twice (first time, second time), but the others haven’t. Anyway, my brother and his family were camping, so Paul and Kate came, but my dad was free so he got to go to Wrigley Field for the first time.

The bleachers were not too rowdy, like they can sometimes be, which was good. I also saw and visited with some other friends from work who hopped on the deal like I did – Chris, Charlie, Waleed. I heard Geoff was there too, but I didn’t see him. We drank a few Shock Top beers, ate a bunch of peanuts, had some hot dogs. The game had a lot of runs and was exciting, even though the Cubs lost. Still a great time!

Yesterday my brother came down for a visit and went to his first Brewers away game at Wrigley Field. We started out at Sports Corner and got a table on the rooftop. The weather was really perfect and the views of Wrigleyville were awesome. The actual game was pretty boring. No runs until the 9th inning when the Brewers made 5 runs at the top and the Cubs scored noting in the bottom. So, my brother was spared having to suffer through the “Go, Cubs, Go!” song.

The Cubs Are a Good Mid-Week Distraction…

Penalty: Too many men on the field!

even if they did lose. Jen and Chad invited us to the game, but Dallas had plans so Jill was my date. Chad and I got the yummy grilled hotdogs from the good vendor with the grilled onions. I haven’t had a dog at Wrigley for probably a few seasons. It was delicious.
