We just got back from a bus trip to Wrigley Field where the Cubs lost 8-6 to Milwaukee.
Sequoit Lodge in Antioch, Illinois, sponsored it. For $65 a person, this was a hard deal to beat, including a ticket to the upper deck, deluxe motor coach and beer and food going and coming back.
Wrigley Field has gotten extremely expensive. The tickets were $28. Had we driven, parking would have been $20-30. Beer in the ballpark is $6.75. I had six beers on the bus which would have been $40.50.
We almost didn't get the tickets as we waited until Tuesday to register to go. April can be a tricky month in the Chicagoland area. Today, the temps were in the 80s and with a strong wind (no cold in it either). That kind of wind means home runs, and we had five.
This is the first Cubs game I have seen in a very long time.
