Last night I was fortunate to be part of a beautiful wedding at the Adler Planetarium, and was amazed at the traffic when I arrived. You see, it also happened to be a pre-season Bears game night, and the Adler shares its parking lot with Soldier Field. Phew, what a trip! The other surprising thing was the temperature — dipping into the early 60s (it got as low as 55 last night) during the actual ceremony, and with clouds and a stiff breeze from the lake, it was like late October.
The couple were wonderfully happy, the guests were wrapped up in whatever came to hand — and we had a lovely time. First time in over 500 weddings in Chicago that I’ve had to compete with the Bears for a place to park — novel!
