Early Planning - BN Get-Together at Wrigley in the First Couple Weeks of the Season?
Posted 30 January 2012 - 04:57 PM
So, I figured I'd give folks the early head's up, and start taking stock of folks' thoughts on a get-together. Obviously if anyone else wants to go to the game, sweet, and we can sit together in the Bleachers. Otherwise, we can get together somewhere around Wrigley one of those evenings, or even on Friday afternoon/evening (we can watch the Cubs play the Cardinals at 2:15 in St. Louis).
Anyone going to be around, generally-speaking, that week, and interested in a get-together? I had a blast hanging with/meeting folks at the Convention, and figured I should give it a shot again.

My Chicago visit this year won't be until July. My family and I will be taking in the 7/13 Diamondbacks game, in case any of you BN folk care to make arrangements. I'll be wearing my BN thong. I'll be easy to spot.
But did you spring for the fur lined upgrade?
I will probably be there sometime in May, as usual and I'll be in Mpls for the inter league series since I lived up there for 4 years & also because I haven't seen a game at Target Field yet.
Al: With every bullet, so far.

So would you say that your visits to Wrigley have been RIFed?
I'm fearful that I may not make it to Chicago this summer due to budgetary constraints (thats a word you say after too much watching politics and going to school board meetings). However Grand Rapids does have The Tigers A-ball affiliate in town and the Peoria Chiefs visit once a year so if anyone is up to coming to West Michigan and enjoy a game a visit to Founders Brewery that could be fun, or someone could "host" a goat for a Chicago trip.

It's OK, dealing with the same stuff here in Indianapolis and surrounding area. My fiance is a teacher and I cover all of the gov't/school board meetings in one of the Indy suburbs...not a fun time in the industry
I'm a teacher in Michigan everything has a RIF looming over it, even my beer drinking. Fucking economy.

I think Ace is planning on renting out the new bleacher boxes above the new sign in right. He's even arranged to have the new scoreboard below scroll through all the new posts -- mostly MG's -- on that day's live Game Thread. It cost him a pretty penny, but the profits from all those t-shirts has gotta go somewhere.
I'll be there for a couple games, almost certainly in the Bleachers.
I guess the big question is...left field or right field?
