Today is Friday and the end of a long work week. Have you thought about your weekend plans? My husband and I are going to a Chicago White Sox game at U.S. Cellular field where we will be celebrating Elvis Night. This yearly event takes place in August and it’s a night when anyone can dress up like Elvis. We always have a great time with some of the ‘best of the best’ Elvis performers!
On November 1, 2016 the name of the stadium, in which the White Sox play, will change to Guaranteed Rate Field with a corporate logo of a red arrow pointing down. Really?! In my opinion, the logo looks like an emoji for losing and the new name sounds incredibly corporate and sterile; the antithesis of a Chicagoan Southsider! A Southsider shares his take on Guaranteed Rate on DNAinfo Radio Chicago.
Anyhoo, I hope you have a fabulous weekend and here are a few interesting tidbits with links from around the web…
