Map: Where to pee outside in Wrigleyville when the Cubs bathrooms fail

See the yellow lines for outdoor peeing locations.

Opening night at Wrigley Field had plenty of speed bumps on Sunday, the least of which was the Cubs' miserable 3-0 loss to the Cardinals. Social media blew up during the game with reports that the venue was vastly underprepared for the game. The wait for bathrooms was around 45 minutes, and a series of photos circulated of urine-filled cups that attendees were forced to use as a toilet. See below:

This report taught us two things:

1. Cubs fans need to drink way more water, because that urine is more yellow than a cowboy turning down a duel.

2. Opening night is apparently synonymous with "Amateur Hour" because every Chicagoan knows that the entire neighborhood of Wrigleyville is one giant urinal.

Re-entry is allowed at Wrigley Field via a side entrance on Waveland Avenue, a popular spot for smokers. Rather than waiting close to an hour for access to indoor plumbing, Cubs fans can head out to a variety of alleyways within walking distance. Look for the yellow lines on the map above to figure out where to relieve your bladder throughout the neighborhood.

Editor's note: We do not advocate public urination, so pee at your own risk in these locations.
