Yankees v Cubs at Wrigley this weekend

Lefty Doug Davis starts against the New York Yankees today at Wrigley Field (Photo Eric Rojas, Realtor. All photos on The Chicago Real Estate Local are taken by Eric Rojas and Bob DePalma unless otherwise noted).

Sure, there are tons of fests and activities going on this weekend...but none greater than the Cubs hosting the New York Yankees for a three game set. Today's game is at 1:20PM. Saturday's game looks to be threatened by weather. Sunday's 7:00PM game is the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball feature which always has great production and fanfare.

Watching the game at a pub around Wrigley is a great way to experience game day if you don't have tickets. We like to hit one of the smaller places just off the Clark Street madness or even Yak-Zies (on Clark) just North of the park has the right kind of laid back, open air viewing during the game. There is no other city that compares to Wrigleyville's neighborhood atmosphere on game day. If you like the big bars, you can try Harry Caray's on Sheffield or any of the the huge open air bars along North Clark Street.
