Off to Chicago...

I'm headed to Chicago for the weekend, so posts from me will be scarce through Labor Day. Going to see my Cubbies take on a couple of foes from their division (Brewers and Astros), and I expect the hours at Wrigley Field will do me some good. Haven't been since April! A couple tunes in honor of my trip...

Sufjan Stevens - Chicago
Jonathan Coulton - Skymall
Steve Goodman - Go Cubs Go

Might post pics, might not. Have a good weekend!

Good to see your post about "Go, Cubs, Go" by Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. Thought you might be interested in an eight-year project of mine that has come to fruition -- an 800-page biography of Goodman published in May, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the background of "Go, Cubs, Go" and "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request." Please check my Internet site below for more info. Just trying to spread the word. Feel free to do the same. And have a great time at Wrigley!

oo have fun. but i must say, i'm going with the brewers on this one. :) get to the art museum if you can, they have some decent traveling shows going on. IF you go, it's a rule to walk across the street and get a chocolate shake at bennigans. they taste different/MORE AMAZING from any other bennigans, and you will never be the same. you will convert to the church of chocolate shakes.

Go Cubs Go makes me cry...

Hey I forgot to mention, cause I was upset about your Gino's comment... grab some pickles from the Billy Goat for me. No need for any of the crap food they have there "Cheeseburger Cheeseburger Cheeseburger..." Yeah thanks, we get it... By the way, you're the Astros good luck charm, way to go! If the Cubs aren't still in the race the last home stand, I'll blame you for the rest of my life.

Funny enough, headed to the Billy Goat tonight.

Was at the Cubs game today, they beat the 'Stros 4-3 on homers with homers by Ramirez and Lee. Oh, so sweet.

Clare, I did indeed hit the Art Institute -- wonderful. Took lots of pics, few of which turned out well. But it was great.
