Memorial Day Weekend In Chicago

I’ve been wanting to put up a post for a few days now, but our internet has been all messed up since a power outage we faced earlier in the week. Anyhow, we had an awesome Memorial weekend in Chicago last weekend, a city I can say I’ve FINALLY seen. I’ve been wanting to go for forever but the wait was well worth it.

We got to go game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals between the Heat and the Bulls. That was an unbelievable surprise from friends, Mike and Sara. Also, the one thing I wanted to do most, we went to Wrigley Field for a Cubs/Pirates game. For a huge baseball fan- what an experience…..I was in awe the entire game that we were sitting in Wrigley friggin field. My brother and I used to watch daytime baseball almost daily on WGN, listening to Harry Caray on our summer breaks.  No school, nothing to worry about, just watching baseball.

Oh yeah, has anyone ever been to Kuma’s Corner?!?! We waited an hour and a half on a Thursday afternoon to be seated (I hear 3+ hours on the weekend). Best mac-n-cheese I’ve ever had and possibly the best burger too, along with an excellent variety of beers. This is an even better atmosphere if you like metal. My burger, the Iron Maiden burger. This place is a must if you visit Chicago.

Here are some photos of our trip. Enjoy…
