Will There be a World Series Watch Party at Wrigley?
If you've experienced severe FOMO (fear of missing out) over the past few nights over not being able to get your hands on a hot pair of World Series tickets, you're not alone. In fact, the closest you think you'll ever get to seeing a World Series game at Wrigley is at Little Cubs Field in Freeport. Unfortunately, you might be right in thinking that.
According to NBC Chicago, the Cleveland Indians have been selling out watch parties at their home base, Progressive Field, for the last three games; what's cooler is that the proceeds from admission costs, $5-$24, from those parties will be donated to local charities.
Imagine seeing the Cubs playing game 6 on giant screens all around Wrigley; finding yourself swimming in a sea of red, white and blue, signing "Go Cubs Go" so loud that people miles away can hear you and filling the streets to celebrate after they win..and only for tiny fraction of the cost for an actual game ticket. It's almost as good as going to an actual game, right?
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Chicago city officials have any plans on throwing any viewing parties, even if it is for just one game. There will, however, be extra security and police around Wrigley in the event that fans gather to celebrate around the Friendly Confines.
Do you think the city made the right choice? Would you attend a viewing party at Wrigley?
