A party broke out today in Wrigleyville
While the Cubs were away in Hollywood, a little TV personality came to Wrigleyville.
And as she stood next to several Chicago firefighters while welcoming a crowd of several hundred, The Food Network’s queen of convenient cooking, Rachael Ray, looked tiny!
Standing up on a cherry picker, firefighters Jon Algas, Greg Keenan and Sam Holloway
helped Ray–armed with a megaphone and wearing a firehelmet–usher in the crowd accompanied by a loud sound of a fire engine horn. A news helicopter circled high above.
All along Sheffield and Waveland avenues, Ray was hosting “Rachael Big Block Party” complete with food tents, ferris wheel and a performance by Kool & the Gang.
Seen noshing near the Frontera Grill tent: Bill and Giuliana Rancic. Bill is known by most “The Apprentice” Season One, and his wife is a host on E! News.
Helping coordinate the event was Chicago Events, the same outfit that helps the Cubs put on the annual Race to Wrigley 5K.
