Livin’ the High Life

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Last night Tim Tadder surprised us with a spectacular evening planned.  A limo came and picked us up after work, took us downtown and dropped us off at Trump Tower.  Our first stop was Rebar; where we had the best table in the bar reserved for us, right by the window overlooking the river.  After a few drinks our waiter told us we had dinner reservations upstairs at Sixteen.  Tim had pre-arranged everything for us — and kept it a secret — so we left it up to the wonderful staff at Trump Tower to lead the way.  At Sixteen, we were welcomed by an AMAZING view of the Wrigley building and Tribune Tower where we were wined and dined all evening.  We only wished the night could have lasted forever!  THANKS TIM!!!

Inchworm, Grape Juice and Cake

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Last night we took an Emissary field trip to see Matthew’s band, Inchworm, play at the Double Door.  This was a celebration for Grape Juice Record’s 5-year anniversary with 9 bands and a cake from Food NetworksAce of Cakes.”  Duff and his band, …soihadto…, was amongst the featured artists of the night.  Tonya was so excited to see Duff, she loves Food Network and their Chefs.  She had actually started following Duff’s career before he even had the show “Ace of Cakes.”  She could barely contain her excitement.  This was a show that will be remembered–great music, great cake and great company!

Kubis’ Take Over Tahoe

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

I recently took a trip to Lake Tahoe for a family reunion.   This is really an amazing place; and being surrounded by 22 other Kubis’ for the week made for an action packed vacation.  We spent most our days on the boat or at the beach and I even jumped off a 50-foot cliff!    But, I’d have to say the best thing about Tahoe is that there are NO bugs (which is something unimaginable in the hot, humid summers of Chicago)!

Crosstown Classic

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

“The Crosstown Classic” is here again and Paul Somers has captured the moment.  This famous interleague series is often known to stir up lots of lively conversations amongst the Emissary employees.  With an office divided, Liz, Matthew and Tonya are Cub fanatics while Stacey holds her own in defense of her beloved White Sox.  The series went down with one rain out and each team walked away with a victory.
