When I take it I take it all the way to Madison & Canal/Ogilve Trans and just cab it northwards...

I usually walk or cab to the L station and take it up to the park. It let's you out right in front of the park.

take the metra all the way downtown then hop on the red line and get off at addison. I did it last week.

LOL... Sox fans tend to get a little ummm crazy (or stupid) so besides being a Cubs fan, I think I will stay with the North Siders.
Plus, Skybox tickets at Wriggley are nice

for future reference, call the RTA. they will go into as much detail as to telling you what bus to take from your house to the metra stop, then from union (or wherever you north-siders get dropped off) to wrigley.
836-7000
i think thats for all area codes.

Hey.................who you calling crazy????


I hope you didn't pay up for those skybox tickets cause those seats are a joke at Wrigley. I get my brokers to take me to games sometimes and the skybox's barely have enough room for 4-5 people to be in and the seats aren't any better than anywhere else in the park.

I didnt pay for tickets, I get them by saying good stuff like, "
I would like to deal with your company, but there are some other competitve companys out there as well"

Then stuff comes to ya

Game was kinda boring but the beer was good... so was cubby bears after the game



All in all, I am a total Chicago Fan and just like giving people shit
