    And Wintrust will get their name on a sports venue after all.

    Almost $1.5M a year. Not too far behind the SOX.

    Of course, an innocuous corporate name that the world will shrug its collective shoulders at. Instead, we get "Go Fuck Yourself Mortgage Loans Arena"

    At this point, I'd take the Maurice Lenell Stadium, aka "the Cookie Jar."

    You're right. Who would want a bevy of sweet food and beverage choices mere steps from the ballpark? I'll just stick with 35th Street Red Hots and that Bacardi place that gets full with 200 people in it. :twitch:

    I hope that bros from around the world flock to Wrigleyville and spend their life savings getting drunk there.

    Generates tax revenue for the city, creates jobs, and keeps them the fuck away from me.

    That's why we have a multitude of parking lots where you can eat the damn brats and blast the damn Metallica at the tailgate of your choice.

    I'm not saying that we need 6-story hotels with deluxe spas for spoiled Lakeview cunts, but right now we literally have one option outside of tailgating.

    Many parks are in the middle of nowhere or don't have shit to do next to it, especially if they aren't right in the downtown area of a city. Miller Park, Yankee Stadium, Citizens Bank Park, Citi Field, Arlington, O.co...

    The 6 or 7 bars we have within walking distance is probably average in MLB, maybe even a little better.

    What are you talking about Turtle, Cork & Kerry are right across the street. Schaller's, Shinnicks, Buffalo Wings & Rings and Mitchells are in easy walking distance. If you aren't a loser, you can also consider Maria's walking distance. Hell, one time I walked to Skylark after a game to meet Fed and his +1

    Plenty of options to get a $6 can of MGD, IOW. Great.

    Not trying to be a prick but there are a bunch of options around Yankee Stadium. That whole street under the tracks is pretty much taverns. Citi Field on the other hand has nothing.

    Ah, I was going off my buddies who claim there isn't anything to do around Yankee Stadium. They might just be white guys afraid of the Bronx.

    How the fuck is that any different from Wrigley?

    A lot of those places are becoming douchey Latin nightclubs. Billy's fucking sucked. Stan's was my jam.

    Oakland is definitely the worst....get off BART and you're stuck in a fenced in bridge that you walk through to the park :lol:

    I haven't been there in probably 8 years; I was at the old one in it's last year. But then they were all like legit taverns. We also found a bowling alley right across the street after the game and rolled a few games and drank some cheap beer before heading back to midtown.

    The places I've read that are coming into the Urinal are legit foodie-ish restaurants, not some sweaty rectangular box like Shinnick's where they serve overpriced domestic cans and that's it. (Note, may have changed, as I haven't been to Shinnick's in 5-7 years)

    Cork & Kerry blows, too.

    So you'd rather go into a hotel and get a Sammy Smiths Cocktard Stout for 15 bucks in Big Star? I seriously wonder if you're trolling us half the time.

    Cork & Kerry (famed Turkeybowl after-party venue)
    Turtle's (decent bar/restaurant)
    The Ballpark Pub (fka Cobblestones, cheap craft beer)
    Mitchell's (fka Puffer's, good craft beer list and patio)
    Schaller's (oldest tavern in Chicago, cheap beer)
    Shinnick's (bar that's too cool for Cheeses)
    Rocky's (bar with a huge patio)
    Wings & Rings (sports bar)
    First Base (bar)
    Freddie's (excellent pizza, beefs, etc.)
    Pancho's (Americanized Mexican)
    Taqueria San Jose (top tier taco joint)
    Tacos Erendira (second tier taco joint)
    Jackalope (independently owned hipster cafe)
    Scoops (independently owned ice cream shop)
    35th Street Red Hots (standard dogs/polish, outstanding shrimp)
    Morrie O'Malley's (hot dogs, burgers, etc.)

    Maxwell Street Depot (polish, pork chop, etc.)
    Ferro's (beefs and Italian ice)
    Nana (Bib award winner)

    South Kawa (good sushi and ramen)
    Home Style Taste (**** Chinese food)

    Northern City (Chinese)
    Bridgeport Restaurant (solid diner)
    Truth (newish Italian restaurant)
    Pearl's Place (good soul food buffet)
    Chicago Rib House
    Harold's Chicken

    The Yelp list is actually a lot longer than this, but I got sick of typing. It does not include these notable places just outside of the radius:
    Maria's
    Kimski
    Zaytune
    Antique Taco
    Duck Inn
    Moody Tongue
    Skylark
    Pleasant House
    Ricobene's
    Connie's
    Reggie's
    Chinatown
    Etc.

    Also, the people who own Freddie's are opening a new bar/restaurant across from Nana that will have a rooftop deck.

    Can't believe Rockys is still open, thought it be long gone by now. San Jose was my jam, Gios is also one on my favorites. First Base anytime I needed [redacted -- cupcake mods], and Schallers for a great meal for like $8. Shinnicks was my tavern when I lived there, that and I spent a ton of time at Club 334 which was a greaseball social club, where I spent many 3-4 AM nights taking down Dewars on the rocks like water.

    Shitty Chinese and Mexicans making Italian food intentionally omitted.

    Bernice's slipped my mind because it's hipster as fuck now.

    Greaseball and Mick clubs not open to the public also intentionally omitted.
