For Father's Day this year, I was able to take my dad to a Cubs game. It was the first game we went to together since the 2003 NLDS. We were just grateful to be able to attend again, and I'm glad it all worked out. A full Wrigley Field was a great place to be!
We sat in the last row in section 420. All the way back, up against the fence. Technically the nosebleeds, but it was still a fantastic view.
We got food: Nachos, Ice cream, hot dogs and....
$20 Mai Tais served in a bucket. Found in a tiny little booth just to the left of the marquee entrance, they would make any cocktail they could and fill up a bucket. It was delightful.
It was the equivalent of like 2.5 drinks, which for $20, isn't bad. I got a few looks and jealous questions. That was my crazy ballpark food item for this event.
Concessions worked a lot better this time. The lines were fairly reasonable, and I didn't have any hiccups doing a mobile order this go round. It was a sorely needed improvement, and I'm glad they turned it around.
And what do you know? The Cubs won again. I'm now 4-0 on the season. This game was a 2-0 win, with a strong outing from Alec Mills. The bullpen locked it down, as I got to see Tepera, Chafin, and Kimbrel. Here's the final out of a packed house.
Happy Father's Day!
