Of course as we are walking up -- I give Mr. E (who by the way, is verrrrrrry jealous The Coop went without him) a call and say - "1060 West Addison...That's Wrigley Field!!!" Blues Brothers references NEVER get old with Mr. E and The Coop. (and it's humor was not lost on Metsgrrl either when we were trying to find our car rental place...when I did, I said, "Bob's Country Bunker...here we are!" After about 20 straight hours, it was hysterically funny...)
OK enough Blues Bros talk, back to Wrigley.
So right outside of the stadium, you see that McDonald's - yes, that McDonald's. I had to promise MG I would not go "there" with the McNuggets song or whatever. But there are also bar upon bar upon bar with Cubs fans around...not to mention tons of souvenir stands. To the right of this photo (besides MG paying an homage to our boy, now Cubs boy Cliff Floyd) are these stands that sell shirts with the sayings of your choice: "Cardinals Suck," "Yankees Suck," "Sox Suck" (I am believing it's the white variety).
We didn't spend too much time on the streets - we had other thangs to do. Like this! Checking out what the inside of Wrigley looked like!
All in all, the first annual Snarky Bitches Road Trip (the name I gave us -- since for some reason in Chicago, everyone thinks New Yorkers are thieves -- gypsies and tramps not so much -- but also snarky), and I just want to go on the record and say this was seriously the most fun I've ever crammed into 36 hours in my life time. I'm not even joking. Thanks to MG, the Mets and to the great cities of Chicago and Milwaukee for doing their part!!
