About a year ago, we told you about a girl named Chelsea Smith that Anthony dated for a while. Well, you can forget all that. Anthony Rizzo’s girlfriend Emily Vakos is the new deal, and he takes her to exotic tropical locations to prove it. The guy is a stud who played an integral role in the Cubs’ World Series title. So if he offers you a round trip ticket to Thailand, you better accept! It’s compulsory travel companionship because no woman can resist the Thailand/Rizzo combo. They spent Thanksgiving there.
Before they left for the big vacation, Anthony Rizzo’s girlfriend posed with him in Central Park. They smiled gleefully and soaked up the autumn foliage. In fact, life with Anthony so far includes private jet rides. Since he appeared on Jimmy Fallon, both he and Emily used one to get back to Chicago after the show. Life with Anthony is heaven for Emily because he takes her to fancy restaurants in Chicago too. Take me to a fancy restaurant, Anthony! I’m a straight white male but I enjoy semi-vacuous conversation with professional big-leaguers, and I especially enjoy high cuisine. Or you can offer me a date with Emily at the same restaurant and pay for it. Either is fine.
The couple also attends all kinds of concerts. Of course, they are huge fans of Coldplay, and they saw them in Chicago in July. A lot of people hate on Coldplay, but I bet their concerts are decent. When you can entertain 20,000 people with life-affirming vanilla songs, you can start hating on them. Until then, Anthony Rizzo’s girlfriend Emily is consistently impressed by them. Right after the Coldplay concert, they attended Lollapalooza in Millennium Park. If you asked me whether this couple was a Pitchfork Festival couple or a Lollapalooza couple, ten times out of ten I answer: the latter.
