I had a good time. I just saw your post about not drinking, so I don't need to mention that I wasn't 21 at the time so I couldn't help you in that area haha but we don't have to worry about that anymore haha.

I can't remember the hotel I stayed at though but it was right off of Michigan Ave so they're probably right in the same area.

The two places that I remember eating at were Gino's East (Pizza), which is right off of Michigan Ave. It started in 1966 and i'm pretty sure I saw some stuff about it on TV or I was just having deja vu when I was there. Pizza was pretty damn good. Long line though.

The other place I ate was Ditka's Steakhouse just because it was Chicago. Steak was alright. Nothing to write home about.

I went in 2011 and it was during one of the biggest heat waves in a while. If you the game where Halladay was sick and had to leave early because of the heat. That was one of the games I went to.

Another funny story is that at one of the other games we were sitting on the left field side. Domonic Brown hit one right down the line into the crowd and it nailed my brother right in the stomach. We immediately got text messages from people we knew because the Phillies announcers were making fun of my brother pretty badly and kept showing the replay. I'll try and upload the video if I can find it.
