30 minutes into downtown Chicago? Ha! I'm surprised it was even the same day when they got back.

This is ridiculous.

Yeah, 30 minutes to downtown would be a stretch, even from "Shermer," which would be in the vicinity of Highland Park if it existed.

However, the timeline mentions having to find parking near Wrigley. They wouldn't have to do this -- they parked the Ferrari in a downtown lot, so they either cabbed it or trained it up to the friendly confines.

So maybe that makes up for the bad commute estimate.
