Beth and I flew into a baseball-crazed Chicago Friday night to meet Andrew and Brandi. We spent most of Saturday running around downtown with they and Jessica. We checked out the new Hershey’s store, visited Millennium Park and ate dinner at Ed Debevics, where the waiters danced on the countertops and were just plain rude.
We came home in the early evening and watched the first game of the World Series. Go Sox(?)
We also played a German card game called Rage, and by some miracle, our wives let us play a new version of the all-American favorite, Risk, called “Lord of the Rings Risk”, obviously based on the movie. (I know, I know, “which was based on the books, that came out first and that are WAAY better than the movies anyway…”)
Today I think we’ll be making fajitas around the house, maybe watching game two, maybe making some pizza tonight, and basically enjoying life in the big city.
Pictures likely to come later.
