Last Minute Chicago Wkd

A Friday idea of a road trip to the Chicago destination to watch the Twins sweep the Chicago White Sox’s at US Cellular Field became a reality. Arriving at 2 AM with no hotel reservations, became clear we had done it! My travel partner and boyfriend, Steve was driver and wasn’t ready for the $60 smoking room at the Amber Inn, so we kept it classy at the Hilton both nights. Our Twins didn’t win Saturday, but our 18th row above home-plate seats made it worth wild. After the game we became tourists visiting the Navy Pier and the Buckingham Fountain. Now heading home today, here a few highlight photos… Chicago is closer to us than you think my Minneapolis friends.

Next year, it will be Milwaukee Brewer Park adventure!

At the private restaurant club at the field, (like Legends Club Target Field), I left a bit of Twins pride.
