It was a grand slam of a weekend as Cardmembers gathered for a truly unique Chicago baseball experience, filled with legendary players and game-time action.
Their exclusive weekend began at Harry Caray's — the famed Italian steakhouse that features museum-quality sports memorabilia — an absolute Chicago institution for any sports fan. There, Cardmembers and their guests had the pleasure of dining with three baseball greats: legends Ernie "Mr. Sunshine" Banks and Andre "Hawk" Dawson, plus current player Anthony Rizzo. This special evening was hosted by former pro-football player and sportscaster Mike Adamle.
On game day, guests were escorted to premium rooftop seating across from Chicago's historic baseball stadium, where they caught all the excitement of the hometown team taking on Atlanta. It was the perfect vantage to soak up the storied past of this iconic ballpark — now in its 100th season of hosting our national pastime.
Guests stayed at the luxurious downtown Renaissance® Blackstone Chicago Hotel, whose neoclassical Beaux-Arts architecture has made it a legendary landmark in the city's arts and theatre district. Cardmembers enjoyed a leisurely farewell breakfast on Sunday as the weekend rounded home.
