5 day weekend
We finally took a nice ‘long’ weekend vacation to Chicago. It was an amazing city with so many things to do. We stayed at the Palmer House Hotel in downtown Chicago. We visited a ‘ton” of places and we can’t tell you about everything in one post. So we have decided to give you a quick summary with a few of our fun videos.
Friday – Drove to Goshen Indiana to stay the night. (close to South Bend)
Saturday – Spent the morning at the College Football Hall of Fame and drove the rest of the way to Chicago. Walked around and grabbed a ‘free’ tour on a double decker bus. (more on that later)
Sunday – Spent all morning at the Navy Pier which included, a Seadog boat tour and lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. We then headed to the Skydeck at Willis Tower (aka Sears Tower) then walked through Millennium Park
Monday – Field Museum in the morning, Giordano’s Pizza for lunch, Buckingham fountain for sunset.
Tuesday – The Museum of Science and Industry, Lucky’s Sandwich Shop, and. . . . Wrigley Field for the Cubs game. (the whole reason for the trip)
Chicago Cubs Story
So we received free tickets to the Cubs game. This trip was a result from our impromptu trip: read about it here.
Like we assumed, the seats were in the upper deck with an obstructed view. Basically, they were the cheapest tickets you can get in Wrigley. But in the end, we were still at a Cubs game so we were just excited to be there. We got to the game 2 hours before the first pitch and walked up to our seats.
We were sitting at our seat in the nosebleeds taking a few pictures of the field. We sat there for a while, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN. . . . . . A Cubs intern walked up to us and asked us to be the Stub Hub Seat Upgrade couple of the game. We were getting our seats upgraded to a section right behind home plate! We were ecstatic. We walked down to our seats and took this video. (I had to talk Katie into doing it. . . . she would make a great “pitch-woman”)

We tried to update it throughout the trip. Some of them are pretty clever.
