New York: Cubs @ Mets, July 6th-8th, 2012
Cubs fans hit the Big Apple in force in early July to take on the Mets. Destinations guests stayed in the beautiful Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers in Midtown Manhattan and took the subway out to Flushing for all the action at beautiful Citi Field. The exclusive baseball access and amenities were not overshadowed by all that New York has to offer (although NY did make it a challenge). Fans enjoyed a VIP tour of Citi Field, gift bags, tickets to 2 games and an awesome pre-game reception with David DeJesus! Rizzo and Johnson kicked off the weekend’s action with 4 hits each in Friday night’s game, taking down the always difficult Johan Santana. Samardzija came out strong on Saturday but the team eventually fell 3 to 1. Dempster pitched a shut out gem on Sunday that extended his scoreless inning streak to 27 innings! The weekend was filled great weather, great baseball, great city sights and great memories that these travelling Cubs loyalists will never forget!
