AAWD's Day Off

We visited the Sears Tower, walked around the Chicago Board of Trade, and caught a day game at Wrigley Field and Principal Rooney still never caught up to us! Ferris Bueller would be so proud.

Call it playing hooky if you will but the guys at Atlanta Area Window and Door Co. took a day off and flew out to Chicago on June 12th to see the Braves play the Cubs, amongst other things.

Here’s our funfilled- and I do mean FILLED- day went.

6:02 am- Depart from Hartsfield-Jackson Aiport in Atlanta.

7:15 am (Central)- Touch down in Chicago

8:07 am-(Still Chicago time) Grabbed breakfast at Mitchell’s. One of Chicago’s oldest diners and home of the World’s Finest Coffee, free doughnut holes, huge omlettes.

9:30 am- Made our way up to the top of Sears Tower.

11:05 am- Toured downtown Chicago, went by the Chicago Board of Trade, Millenium Park to see the giant bean…

and then started making our way to the train for a looooooong ride to Wrigley.

12:00pm- Got to Wrigley Field early to get to our seats, Chicago dogs, and some photos.

1:00 pm- Game Time! First pitch for the Braves vs Cubs game.

4:35 pm- In extra innings, the Braves lose to the Cubs 3-2. A heartbreaker but still a good time at the park.

6:35 pm- Chicago Deep Dish Pizza at Giordano’s

8:00pm- back to the airport to catch our flight home.

9:05 pm- take off for Atlanta and 4 exhausted dudes fly home.

11:30pm (EST) – touch down back in Atlanta.

There’s our itenarary. We loved every minute of it but as you can see it was a long day.

The best story for this outing is that Mark ended up sitting three seats down from his cousin from Rockford, IL (which is where Mark is orignally from) at Wrigley! Talk about a coincidence!

Well, thanks for letting us fill you in on a little fun we got to have in Chicago.
