Post-game we headed to the Uptown neighborhood for drinks.  For a quiet drink with friends it is best to leave Wrigleyville post-game.  The night was still young and the Cubs won.  Uptown is the neighborhood where The Green Mill resides.  Live jazz every night to the wee hours, great drinks and a mob history...true Chicago.   If you're fortunate enough to sit at the bar, strike up a conversation with the bartender and ask to see the photo album.  There's a bartender there that can tell you stories that'll make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck about Mr. Capone and The Green Mill. To remind you of it's great history, there's a piano BEHIND the bar with an 8 x 10 black and white photo of Al Capone on it. Though we didn't go in to the Green Mill tonight, I've been many times to hear the great Grammy nominated Kurt Elling play.  Ah, Chicago.  Everyone has some kind of six degrees to Al Capone, even me, a girl originally from Nebraska.  Just ask me sometime.
