She inquired whether he preferred to sit in the front or the rear.
In the Wrigleyville region, Casey, an Indianapolis native, was visiting pals. A Chicago-based assistant US attorney named Yusef Dale was revealed to be the blind man.

“I wanted to give this gal a shout-out. We are on the rooftop of the Old Crow Smokehouse in Wrigleyville; I have no idea who she is.
