Chicago Carding

3 Apr

I’m on my way home from a business trip to New Jersey and stopped in Chicago for a 2 and a half hour layover. My favorite dining spot is Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch at Midway airport.

I found a stool at the bar and ordered a Holy Cow burger and chips which commemorates the legendary baseball announcer’s honored call. I also ordered a Merlot. At that point, imagine my surprise when the bartender carded me! I was pretty pleased with myself until I noticed that he was carding everyone. This included a dude at least 10 years olde than me thy almost fell off his stool with an enthusiastic fist pump.

My business trip was about risk management. I guess carding everyone who orders an alcoholic beverage regardless if age is risk management at its finest. Yet, none if us are flying the plane home… We already have a designated driver!

Eat well,
