How about a baseball game? July 14th, Florida Marlins vs. Chicago Cubs, at Wrigley Field.

705pm Start. I looked at the schedule for you.

Also, pics of the car, would be nice, if poss.!

Sears Tower is a must. Then probably a tour of food. LOL.

The people on my return flight will probably not be happy about that.
