Jimmy Butler’s Taylor Swift sing along in the Bulls locker room earlier this year makes a little more sense now.
The Bulls guard was on hand Friday for the country music festival, Windy City Smokeout, at Grand Avenue and the Chicago River. Ex-Bear Greg Olsen – now with the Carolina Panthers —was also there, separately. On Saturday, Butler checked out the National Women’s Soccer League game between the Chicago Red Stars and Seattle Reign FC and then tweeted a photo of himself out to dinner with Reign star Sydney Leroux.
The Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo dined Friday at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse-Chicago, as did Cubs legends Andre Dawson and Ernie Banks. Former Cubs Ryan Dempster and Kerry Wood attended a wedding reception Saturday at Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab private dining space. NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, former New England Patriots star Rodney Harrison, former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre and the Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman dined, separately, Friday at Joe's. Taylor and the Braves’ B.J. Upton hung out, separately, Friday at Paris Club Bistro & Bar’s upstairs club, Studio Paris.
Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino had dinner Friday at Chicago Cut Steakhouse.
