NileGuide Expert Says:
If you're in town for a game and can fit it into your schedule to make a quick trip to the North Side, do it! (This local is a Cubs fan, so be advised that there may be some bias in recommending this attraction.)
NileGuide Expert tip:
It is highly advisable to use public transit to get to the field- preferably the Red Line to Addison. Parking is scarce and expensive, especially on game days. Allow extra travel time on game days; the el is packed with fans, so you may have to wait a train or two.
- Take me out the ball game! Major League Baseball's second oldest active major league ballpark, Wrigley Field, is loved just the way it is by baseball lovers everywhere, and Cubs fans in particular. Those lucky enough to score tickets to a game will enjoy a good view from any seat in the house, with the exception of sitting directly behind a post. Hot dogs and Old Style beer (or a soda for the kids) are a must. Since the passing of Cubs announcer Harry Caray, the most recognizable character present at every game is now Ronnie "Woo Woo" Wickers, who wears a Cubs uniform and wanders the stands cheering "Cubs- Woo" or some variation thereof. He is happy to take pictures with adoring fans. By the way, in the seventh inning stretch, it's "root, root, root for the CUBBIES."
