chicago :: two

wrigley field!!!!

we got off the subway at addison with no tickets in hand. my boyfriend schmoozed with a few scalpers (shhh!) to get us some pretty fabulous tickets.

we made friends with the people around us (all of whom were chicagoans and major cub fans) and indulged in some ballpark beers and snacks!

i was so intrigued by the bleacher seats on top of the private businesses outside of the stadium that literally had amazing views of the game!

we were lucky enough to have front row seats to the cubs band! for a bit of history about wrigley field, check out this description on flickr.

this is the original scoreboard, which is largely still in tact - built in 1937.

you can't experience a true american baseball game without hearing, "take me out to the ball game!" during the stretch of the 7th inning.

a little lovin' in front of wrigley field...and in front of the statue of ernie banks, the first cub to retire his number. all in all it was a great day at wrigley.

counting the days until i can get back there...
