Nor could Robert Redford...
But like every year, I didn’t care. I am a Cubs fan. I will be excited if they win and loyal if they don’t.
It’s going to be a long season but I believe they will do it. And, just what they do is unquestionably a matter of faith so now we have come full circle. I like ending everything on a hope and a prayer.
I’m excited about all the new food at Wrigley this year including the return of Vienna Beef and am wondering when the vendors will take each other on and do a reality show? Can you see it all now? ...The Battle of the Ballpark chefs. Sounds like a good one to hand off to Guy Fieri.
If you want something to chill on try frozen kefir (Kefir is a probiotic cultured milk beverage similar to that of yogurt) topped with berries and trail mix which is available at the Grounds Crew and Brew stand near the main gate. You can also grab Edy’s frozen custard at the two Chillville stands which is up on the main concourse on the left and right field ramps.
If you don’t want to consume all of your calories at the ball park because you’re saving your splurge for a dinner at Mercat a la Planxa this weekend, go for some of the new, healthy options that have been just introduced.
Preparations like a grilled chicken with lettuce and tomato on a whole wheat bun, vegetables with hummus and a fruit cup with chili-lime salt are now all featured on the expanded healthy menu at Wrigley. I love healthy most of the time but at the ballpark where hot dogs and peanuts still rule? A difficult thought!
One thing you can mail to any cubs fan around the world - peanuts!
The restaurants and bars around Wrigley, who make it the one-of-a-kind neighborhood it is, are now partnering with Levy to bring you some of the best food in the area.
Stanley’s Kitchen and Tap brings the fan-favorite Stanburger to Broadcast Grill and Sheffield Grill which are both located in the right field main concourse. Wrigley will also be switching Pizzas to neighborhood favorite D’Agostino’s.
Don’t you just love a ballpark that supports their neighborhood chefs?
