If you live in the DSM and you've never been to an Iowa Cubs game... I suggest you check the schedule.
We went tonight and had a BLAST. We can get a couple tickets through WHO, and the seats were OUTSTANDING. It was in the shade, and the 90 degree heat didn't really feel like that. There was a great breeze. The crowd was pretty sparse, but I like that more than I like being jammed in the park like a sardine.
It was $1 hotdog night, so we feasted on the cheap.
The Cubbies couldn't get the W, but it was a night to remember. Definitely gonna make a repeat appearance.
