This Fan Is Tracking Where to Watch the World Series in Wrigleyville
It’s true: some bars are charging up to $300 cover to watch the Cubs game on TV (plus food and drinks).

Headed to Wrigleyville to catch the Cubs World Series games this weekend?
Those who weren’t lucky enough to snag tickets may want to soak up the vibes at the many nearby bars, but even that won’t be cheap: some spots are charging as much as $350 (we’re looking at you, Stretch) to enter.
Of course, a couple hundred bucks will typically buy you unlimited drinks and some food while you’re there, but it’s no guarantee. The Cubby Bear, with its prime location at Clark and Addison, is charging $100 cover with no perks.
And if you’re headed that way, be ready to show your ID, leave your car at home, and keep your drinks indoors—Chicago police will be adding 1,000 officers in a two-block radius around the park.
At least you’ll have a chance to snag a free Uber home—Jim Beam is sponsoring 10,000 rides up to $20 starting in the 7th inning today, the distiller announced, first-come first-served. Check your Uber app for details.
