After dark, maybe head over to the Milwaukee Ale House or the Water Street Brewery. Was in Beertown last Winter and stumbled upon the WSB while on our way to the MAH! I think I preferred it to the MAH!

To get back on-topic, HurricaneFloyd and/or ablrbrau, where did you end up visiting when you were in Chicago?
Haven't been there yet-going tomorrow. We are meeting friends at the Cubby Bear before the game then afterwards we might go to Goose Island-lookin forward to it! Even though I'll be the only Brewer fan in the bunch. Not too optimistic about the game though- Doug Davis is pitching for the Crew and he's been getting shelled this year. No matter I'm gonna have a blast no matter what.

Try and get your friends and you out of the Cubby Bear as quick as you can! Just because you are a tourist doesn't mean you have to drink like one! Goose Island is practically across the street. Cross Clark St. and go south (left) a couple of doors. You'll be glad you did!

I'll do that- they're big Cub fans and they just want to go onto the 2nd floor and stare at the big Wrigley sign. I'll let them have their fun and then start pushing them out the door!

P.S. Yeah Cheese I know- I watched it on FSN. I fully expect a repeat tomorrow with Davis and Rusch pitching. Davis can't find the zone and no matter how bad Rusch is( and he SUCKS that 's why the crew got rid of him) the Crew can't hit him.

Don't underestimate Rusch. He seems bad, but in reality he sucks way the hell more than you can ever imagine. What can we say though, he's there to replace a guy (Wood) who spends more time on the bench than the varnish.

That's truly sad. Someday, the rest of Chicago will come around and realize The White Sox won the World Series... hello!...

Reminds me of a joke I recently heard:

A popular bar had a new robotic bartender installed. A fellow came in for a drink and the robot asked him,"What's your IQ?"

The man replied, "150."

So, the robot proceeded to make conversation about Quantum physics, string theory, atomic chemistry, and so on. The man listened intently and thought, "This is really cool."


So, the man decided to test the robot! He walked out of the bar, turned
around, and came back in for another drink. Again, the robot asked him, "What's your IQ?"

The man responded, "100."


So, the robot started talking about football, baseball, SI swimsuit models, sensual topics and so on. The man thought to himself, "Wow, this is really cool." So, the man went out and came back in a third time.

As before, the robot asked him, "What's your IQ?"

The man replied, "Ummm... I think, 50... maybe."

The robot said, "So... how 'bout them Cubs?!

Come on, we all know that joke started in the opposite direction.

Sitting.

In the rain.

Watching the Cubs get shellacked. Hopefully, you were able to make it over to Goose when the game was over. Which, IIRC, was about the middle of the 4th inning!

Fortunately, the Sox and the Bulls won!
