Blackhawks Jim Comes to Wrigley Field

31 August 2010 No Comment

Blackhawks Jim joined us in Wrigleyville for the Cubs game tonight so we went to two usual places before the game.

Pre Game Dining
First up was Wrigleyville North – the cheapest place to buy beer around Wrigley Field on game day. Second, we went to Full Schilling since everyone was hungry. Now it is $7 to buy a 24 ounce beer and receive a free hot dog (it used to be $6). Since nobody was in the bar we actually received a second hot dog without having to purchase a second beer.

Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs
In the exact opposite of last night’s game, the Pirates crushed the Cubs 14-7. The score would have been worse but the Cubs scored 5 times in the bottom of the 8th. The Cubs have now allowed 14+ runs in seven games this season – the most by a Cubs team in one season since 1897.
