Questions About Visiting Bears Training Camp & Family Fest




Hey guys,

I'm traveling to Chicago from July 29th-August 3rd for a jam-packed Chitown sports adventure! This will be my first time attending any Bears event up in Chicago, so I wanted to find out some information for me and my family so we could have the best experience during our trip. We'll be going to training camp on July 30th, and I would like an idea of how the whole event goes down. I definitely want autographs (and hopefully pictures) from the athletes, so does it matter where we are watching from? Or do the athletes walk around to just about everyone? Then on August 2nd we will be attending the Bears Family Fest. If there are any tips or "cheats" you guys can provide on how to get the best experience that night (whether it's what time we should get there, how to meet athletes, or ANY information regarding Family Fest) then could you please provide some information. Oh, and If I can get a picture and autograph with Jay Cutler then there will not be a happier guy in Chicago than me!

In between those days, we are going to watch the Cubs at Wrigley Field. This will also be my first time going to Wrigley as well, so I'm excited for that. Hopefully Jake Arrieta (or a young pitcher who gets called up like Kyle Hendricks) is pitching that day instead of one of the bums like Edwin Jackson, and an exciting, young prospect like Arismendy Alcantara gets promoted to the majors by then (we know the core four won't be coming up that soon so that's why I said Alcantara).

Not to forget, I can't wait to eat some delicious Chicago food! If there are restaurants that are "can't miss" other than Portillo's or Giordano's then please feel free to recommend them to me! Thank you guys for the help and it'll be cool if any of you plan on attending training camp that same day, or even Family Fest!
