Chicago Bears Safety Chris Harris poses with fans

Bears Safety Chris Harris loves Twitter, football fans, and Chicago, so yesterday he and Sun-Times Reporter Sean Jensen decided to combine all three in a tour of the city. Along the way, the duo bowled, test drove an Audi, had lunch at a local spot, and interacted with fans and Twitter throughout the day.

Chris is a fan of The Chicago Mix, so naturally Garrett Popcorn had to be a stop in his tour of Chicago. Chris and Sean swung by Garrett Popcorn at the Merchandise Mart and handed out gift cards for free popcorn to fans. One lucky fan walked away with an autographed Chicago Bears Tin filled with The Chicago Mix.

If you want to see more about their “Twitter Tour”, watch the video of their adventures here. There are also more photos on the Garrett Popcorn Facebook page.

Thanks, Chris & Sean, for making Garrett Popcorn part of your day!

On Twitter, you can find Chris at @ChrisHarrisNFL, Sean at @skjensen, and Garrett Popcorn @GarrettPopcorn.

UPDATE: More “behind the scenes” from the tour in this article.
