Unicorn Bar | 05/03/09
This weekend I flew to Chicago for an early Mother's Day surprise and a couple of Cubs games before flying back to DC last night. Since Steve had rooftop tickets to a game at the same time as my flight in he gave me directions to the Unicorn Bar: a bar devoted to the Cubs, Bears, and Seminoles. It was actually called The Pianoman but I'll always remember it as the Unicorn Bar because I can't believe such a place existed. After the game I met up with Steve and his friends there before we went back to Loyola for the evening.
On Saturday my parents came up and we went to the Cubs game (my first one at Wrigley since Middle School) and watched the Cubs slay the Marlins. We had great seats down the left-field line and it was rumored that we might have been on TV according to the douchebag that was sitting next to my dad. After the game we went out to dinner somewhere by Steve's apartment (Leona's?) and then played some Pictionary.
On Sunday I picked up Amy from Midway and then met up with Steve's harem for the game. It was a perfect day and before the game the Cubs retired #31 for Maddux and Jenkins. We got to see Lee hit a grand slam and MARMOL, who amazingly did not walk or hit a single batter. He did give a homerun but whatever. MARMOL. After the game we hung out at the Unicorn Bar so Amy could verify it wasn't a figment of my imagination. After that we all parted ways and Steve dropped my off at O'Hare with about 20 seconds to spare. Thankfully I had my boarding pass and no checked luggage or I would have missed it by about 45 minutes. Whew!
