Andy Dwyer and Tom Haverford visit Chicago in the seventh and final season of "Parks and Recreation." And it appears the two characters took a cab all the way from Pawnee, Ind. to get here.
Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari -- who play Dwyer and Haverford, respectively -- filmed scenes for the NBC sitcom Thursday at Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue. In the scene, their characters pull up in a cab from the fictional town of Pawnee and get out and take in the Chicago skyline. Because it was drizzling, Pratt and the suit-wearing Ansari stood under umbrellas when the cameras weren't rolling.
The weather was sunny when Ansari and Pratt were filmed taking a stroll at North Avenue Beach later that afternoon (I don't know how Ansari could handle wearing a suit all day in this weather). As was the case in Pioneer Court, the actors were joined in the scene by co-star Natalie Morales, who plays Lucy on the show. Once they were done filming the scene, Ansari jumped on Pratt's back for a quick photo with the lake in the background.
Where else in Chicago did "Parks and Recreation" film? Millennium Park, outside Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist and outside of Wrigley Field.
Speaking of Wrigley Field, Pratt threw out the first pitch and sang the 7th inning stretch at Wednesday's Cubs game. Ansari performed stand-up at The Vic and was spotted by the bar at David Burke's Primehouse in The James Hotel Wednesday. According to Xoco's Instagram page, both men also visited what appears to be the Mexican restaurant's River North location that day.
On Thursday, Pratt hung out at Jimmy in The James Hotel and tweeted from the Garth Brooks concert at the Allstate Arena. "I'm at Garth Brooks right now," Pratt tweeted. "One of the greatest moments in my life. #GodBlessGarthBrooks"
