Before the CUBS game

Hi Folks- I am excited to be seeing the Cubs (Wrigley Field really) for the first time in June. When I go to see the Giants here in San Francisco there are lots of local flare places close by for a drink or appetizer before the game (don't worry I plan to indulge in a ball park beer and snacks) but I am wondering if there are some such places near Wrigley?

Wrigleyville has much more to offer than China Basin.

Also as an FYI you will probably be under whelmed by the food choices inside the park. Food is much better outside the ball park.

Goose Island is a 2 minute walk south on Clark. Chicago's original craft beer. Great food and bar and spectacular beer!

Murphy's is the best place to go before the game, have fun!

Thanks for the ideas- we will check one out... maybe Murphys before and Goose after. I want to try some local beers so that will be a good chance to do so. Can't wait!
