An Out-of-the-Ballpark Trip to Wrigleyville
For sports fans
Cubs tickets Cubs games often sell out before the season starts, though you do still have a shot at some May and September games. If you don't snatch up tickets when they go on sale in February, you'll have to buy them at marked-up prices from brokers. Stop at the Wrigley Field box office, 1060 W. Addison St., at 9 a.m. on weekend game days (8 a.m. on weekdays) to see if they have any recently released tickets (773/404-2827; cubs.com). If you're lucky enough to get them, you'll pay face value (from $27). Otherwise, head to Stubhub.com, a Major League Baseball-sanctioned site that season-ticket holders use to sell their seats. For rooftop seats, try Wrigleyville Rooftops (773/842-5387; wrigleyrooftops.com).
Wrigley Field Tours Guided tours of the historic ballpark, built in 1914, take visitors to the Cubs clubhouse, visitor's clubhouse, dugouts, on-deck circles, press box, mezzanine suites and other locations (773/404-2827; cubs.com).
