View From The New Wrigley Bleachers
I went to the dump that is known as Wrigley Field last night with some good friends. I think this was the second time I've been in the bleachers, but I can't totally recall. Have to admit...it was pretty fun.
Couldn't pay much attention to the game (which kinda explains why the Bleachers are such a party normally, right?), but I did 'hoss down an absolutely delicious Hot Doug's polish sausage called the 'Carmen Fanzone'. I wasn't ever able to get to Hot Doug's before they closed, so this was a really nice treat!
The Tribune describes the sausages thusly:
Named for former Cubs players, the lineup consists of the Carmen Fanzone (spicy Vienna Beef polish sausage with brown mustard and caramelized onions), the Rick Reuschel (pork sausage with chipotle mustard and pepper jack cheese) and the Dave Kingman (bacon cheeseburger sausage with cola-barbecue sauce and sharp cheddar).The improvements they've made to the park are quite dramatic and really quite tasteful. All the advertising that is now present in the park is mono-color (white letters/branding) and the bleachers have a lot of room to roam. Nat wants to take the kids to Wrigley, and I'll likely have to cave and saddle the kids up and drive to the mess that is Lakeview on a Cubs game day.
