Come Enjoy the Amenities of Wrigley Field for Free…On Extremely Short Notice


For the 10th consecutive year, the Chicago Cubs are opening Wrigley Field up to the people of Chicago to say thank you for their undying, through thick-and-thin support. On Saturday, October 2, 2010, neighbors in Wrigleyville/Lakeview will be able to enjoy free food, refreshments and an opportunity to play catch on the beautiful green grass of Wrigley Field.

Of course, this was just announced yesterday, and the event is tomorrow, so it’s a kind of short notice there. But maybe you have nothing else to do? This sounds a bit like the friend who calls you on Friday night at 9:45 PM, and asks you “hey, what are you doing tonight?”

But this news is still much pleasant than the story that surfaced across the street at Sluggers bar and grill a couple weeks ago.
