Saturday was such a whirlwind that I’m just now getting around to writing about it. As soon as we finished with the USAF Half Marathon we were in the car and on the road from Dayton, OH to get to Chicago, IL by the evening to see Jason Mraz and Dave Matthews Band at Wrigley!
Unfortunately we hit traffic and were running late to get to the show. We figured we would be okay since we had bought VIP tickets. In the past with VIP tickets through the fan club (Warehouse) get really good seats. With general admission on the field we expected a sectioned off area up front to be reserved for the VIP. Also, the beer and food is all free as it is built into the price of the ticket. Turns out they did have a VIP section….in the back. Oh and the free beer and food, was at Cubby Bear across the street and was cut off at 8pm, so that was a bust as well. To even get up front we would have had to have been there when the gates opened at 4pm which we would have never made with the trip. So we spent WAY too much on tickets that got us no decent view, beer or food. We would have been better off with regular tickets.
Jason was amazing! I only wish we could have seen his whole set. We will definitely be looking to find a chance to see him again.
Since there was no way to predict that this VIP would be different from others in the past we went and got our own beers and made “The Best of What’s Around”. 😉 After Jason’s performance we took advantage of the opportunity to get pictures of Wrigley Field up close.
Being in Chicago is always the best!!
DMB was fabulous as usual! It doesn’t matter how many shows we see, they are always a entertaining.
