Yesterday we spent the day walking around the Chicago neighborhood of Lakeview. We were there to pick up a load, which we were told when we accepted it, was loading at Wrigley Field. Interesting, we thought. All the agent told us was that we were loading steel panels. Steel panels? For what?
When we got to teeny tiny empty parking lot two blocks from the stadium and saw a small fleet of trucks with Brad Paisley's name on the side of them, we figured out pretty quick that we were moving equipment for the concert.
Turns out Brad Paisley was bringing his Virtual Reality tour to Chicago. Joining him were Miranda Lambert, Chris Young, The Band Perry and Jerrod Niemann.
We didn't attend the concert - although we spent about ten minutes talking to an old man hawking tickets, deciding against buying them - but we did spend the day walking around the neighborhood, enjoying a beer here and a photo op there, and at the Starbucks we had a late afternoon latte at, we sat outside on the patio and were not only able to take in the parade of people heading to the stadium, but we were able to hear the music as if were at the concert.
There were lots of cowboy hats, boots, Daisy Dukes and girls in cute little sundresses. Ed was thoroughly enjoying the cute girls in their summer garb. I don't think I've ever seen him so engaged in watching people!
