My stack of vouchers are good for that entire series.
Next week is a day game.
Good the 23rd?
I'm using vouchers for the Wednesday day game.
Will be in Milwaukee.
What is the appeal of wanting to do yoga outside for a hour in August to get really sweaty and then sit through a baseball game? Also you have to bring your own yoga mat
I guess that could be cool if you're into that sort of thing if it were on the field.
But this is totally pointless.

Sticking this here, as it relates go attending games haps.
Are the food code violations factored into that rating?
Not a surprise that the Bears are dead last. Partly because football is the worst live sport, but the Bears and Soldier are both pretty awful in their own regard.
Well team performance wasn't a factor. But the tickets are expensive, parking is expensive, it's annoying to get to on PT unless you can take the Electric Line, the concourses are packed, the bathrooms are crammed, and the food isn't great.
So for all the bitching about the Sox not building a downtown ballpark, the downtown stadium is the worst, the Sox are the best, and the furthest from downtown is the second best.
Bears should have built a new stadium instead of putting that fucking spaceship inside that museum.
Just discovered that Monday is a doubleheader
1st game starts at 4:10pm.
Plenty of good seats available.
Going for MN:
i.e. NG, not going
Could start Gio (hopefully in G2)
To be fair, the rankings about food and shit have nothing to do where the stadium is. Its just simply the Sox are doing it the best. The beer selection this year is solid as fuck. It would still be cool to have something downtown, but I know what we have now is ok. It's just not Camden or PNC or Petco in terms of "aesthetics".
Also it's the best in Chicago. I love Sox park and I'm definitely totally BIASED, but this is kind of a tallest midget scenario. Wrigley and Soldier(s) Field are both a shit show. I pass by the stadium in Bridgeview all the time but I've never been in. And I haven't been to the UC in years but I've always assumed it's nothing spectacular.
I got the shirt on Thursday and the bobble head on Saturday and didn't go to either game. #winning
Toyota Park pretty much sucks. Feels more like a shitty concert venue than it does a stadium. They have Anti Hero on tap, so I guess that's points.
UC has some decent food selections, but I almost never eat there. Usually go to Beer Bistro 1st. The beer selection sucks, however. It's like Wrigley with Bud/Goose products near exclusively. Overall it's a great place to watch a game, but tickets are fucking expensive, so that goes against the experience in rankings like these.
Went to the Green Day show on Thursday night at Wrigley; eleven bucks for a 20oz Budweiser. Holy shit was it a shit show to get out of.
Going to the URINAL tonight to see a game for the first time in 12 years.
I've been to 2 Cub games in the last 2 years...which is 2 more than the previous probably 15 years.
I went last week, 1st time seeing the concourse improvements (had been earlier in the year but in the Bleachers).
Still feel cramped? Absolutely
Food selection is still shit, too.
Debating whether to eat somewhere else nearby or at the park. I'd like to get Hot Doug's, but I think that's only in the bleachers, and I'll be sitting lower bowl first base side.
And bleachers don't connect to the rest of the stadium.
Tix were free, from the guy with the World Series ring I wore a few weeks ago. He also wants to take our picture on the field after the game.
UC is fine. It has concourse bars with hard liquor and expanded beer selection.
Tix on stubhub are only $9 for Wrigley this week
Defending WS Champs
I quietly wondered about this in my head. I've been behind home plate those 2 games but I looked out and I noticed the field doesn't wrap around.
Bobblehead kinda looked shitty on tv, and Dick Allen is cool as fuck but I'd rather be caught dead in a wrestling t-shirt before wearing that Dick Allen tacky shit.
I lasted 4 innings.
I just don't give a fuck about that ballpark, that team, all the shiny new improvements, and their fans. Sure, everything looks nicer and bigger and wider, but it all felt and
Richie Rich has succeeded in building a palace for rich cocksuckers to pretend they're baseball fans.
And yet as evidenced by your pic, a good portion of the seats in that stadium flat out suck if your primary concern is watching the game. No amount of money will fix that.
And they split a single section of seats into 2 section numbers, with the most fucked up seat numbering imaginable.
I couldn't see most of either of the 2 new big electronic scoreboards/displays tonight, and couldn't see the main scoreboard in CF, so I had to struggle to find out who was batting, who was fielding, etc. Just not worth it. What % of seats on the first level have that garbage view blocked by poles or the upper deck?
Plus I was surrounded by entitled a-hole Cub fans.
So why did you go?
We got offered free tickets, I assumed they would be better. I realized my mistake within 10 minutes of being inside. I'm absolutely done-zo with that shithole and the upcoming Addison/Clark mallification.
DUDE WE'RE GETTING BIG STAR AND SHAKE SHACK! WOO CUBBIES!!!
The power of pussy.
Cheeses, I've been there. Trust me, go with your gut, kid. Don't go eat sushi. Don't get dragged to Hall & Oates concerts. And sure as fuck don't agree to go mutha fuckin' Wrigley.
Everything in the 200s higher than like row 8 is fucking terrible.
I sat in 116 row 14 last week, it was quite pleasant. Of course, it was on company dime and they were probably $100+.
Lesson learned, but I shan't be back.
Wait, so you DIDN'T stay to take a picture on the field after the gayme?
Would have had a monopoly on #1 seeds if that occurred.
I choose not to have my picture taken on the field at the Urinal!
Fuck, I ate my shit on the Glenn Beckert/Don Kessinger scene. What's happening now is unrecognizable.
