DAY 9 - THE FINALE
Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4 - First off, HUGE thank you to Nick's parents for hosting us in their home in Port Washington Friday night. When everyone eventually woke up Saturday morning, they had already made an awesome breakfast for us. After breakfast, we took to the driveway to play some basketball and see who is the biggest baller of the group. I'll leave it to you to guess who it was.
Another BIG GAME Saturday as Michigan was playing Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinal, and Nick's parents were kind enough to let us watch it in their MANCAVE basement and order pizza for us. We also came to realize how many aspiring rock artists were among the G-Men as the electric guitar and drum set were at full blast the entire morning. Michigan came out with a big W and then it was time to head off to our last stop, Northwestern.
We were grateful to have the opportunity to open a concert for Significant Others, an all-female a cappella group from Northwestern. The concert was really fun and Sig-O delivered some powerful, upbeat and exciting music. Huge thank you to Sig-O for allowing us to come share our music! It was a great way to spend the last night of tour!
BUT WAIT... there's more! Post-concert, we made our way to Giordano's for a taste of some Chicago deep dish pizza. MONEY SHOT :O -->
After hanging out with Sig-O for the night and sharing some songs and stories, we stayed at the apartment of Kevin Anthony, a G-Men alum (thank you Kevin!!). The next morning, it was unfortunately time to end tour and set our GPSs to Ann Arbor. On the way back, we had to stop in Chinatown to get some Dim Sum. We feasted on pork buns, ribs, beef tripe and chicken feet (mmmm)! Although we had to say goodbye to Chicago, we will be back in two weeks for ICCA Semifinals! As a cherry on top, Michigan won the Big Ten Tournament championship by beating Purdue 75-66! Maybe we should keep touring since tour = wins?!?!
Thank you for following The G-Men along our weeklong adventure of shenanigans and singing. It's been my pleasure sharing our journey with you and if you have any suggestions to where we should go next year, leave a comment! Sorry Jordan! - Brian
