Opening Game at Soldier Field: Packers vs Bears

Since Josh and I are going to be missing a lot of the NFL season this year, I decided that we should go to the Packers vs Bears game at Soldier Field in Chicago on September 13!

We drove a few miles up the road and hopped on the South Shore Line train. The train took us right to Soldier Field and it was only $8/person. Quite a deal!

Before we went to the game I looked online for any food that we had to try while at Soldier Field. I found a lot of great items but one really caught my eye: a hotdog with a pretzel bun covered with mac-n-cheese and bacon! WHAA?! 

The first thing we did when we got to Soldier Field was find this hotdog! Mission Accomplished! 

What diet?!

We found our seats (50 yard line, 16 rows back, in the shade, on the Visitors side) and enjoyed our hotdogs before going to the Nuts on Clark stand to get some carmel popcorn and cheese popcorn. Again, WHAT DIET?!

It was tight there for a while but in the end the Packers won! 

[We moved closer to the field once all the Bears fans started leaving. Here is our victory picture!]

The game was a ton of fun and there were a lot of Packers fans (Green Bay is only a few hours from Chicago) at the game! I was very vocal and Josh was embarrassed but we had a great time! :-)

Next stop, Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati to see my Chargers take on the Bengals!
