Today we decided to mostly keep it local and hang out in Wicker Park during the day as we were heading out in the evening to see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers at Wrigley Field.
We wandered down Milwaukee Street towards Damen Station to go to Doves Luncheonette for breakfast. Steve had Huevos Rancheros for his breakfast.
It was dinner time by now, so we couldn’t resist a Chicago hotdog. The best part of it was the condiment station – complete with delicious pickles. Love a good condiment station. This could never happen in Perth, people would just fill their handbags with the pickles. The hotdog was actually really good too.
It did start to rain just before Tom Petty played (as was forecast) but we had our ponchos and we were kind of under cover so it was ok. The rain hung around for a while, but didn’t get too heavy, so luckily the show didn’t get cancelled or anything. We’ve had that happen to us before in America.
We were really far away, and it was kind of really bright up where we were sitting which was a bit weird, but it was still really awesome, and probabaly the only chance we will ever get to see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. The crowd loved it and sang along a lot.
