Even when baseball’s not in season, there’s plenty to do at this legendary stadium, erected in 1914 and reinvigorated by an ownership change in 2009. Seasonal tours offer an insider peek at the Friendly Confines, and, come winter, you can skate on an ice rink just outside of the field. Keep your eyes on the website for quick-to-sell-out special events; in the past, they’ve included ice-hockey games, a college football match and inexpensive charity events that allow the public to prance on the field.

Nothing beats the smell of ballpark food, the sound of fans cheering and a win for the home team. The best part about Wrigley Field is the food. With so many different options, it’s really hard to choose what to eat. I’m all about the traditional ballpark hot dog, however, Wrigley has stepped up their game and has a foot-long buffalo chicken tenders and slaw hot dog. This hot dog is covered with blue cheese slaw and topped with buffalo chicken tenders. If that is a little too much for you, there is also a bacon mac n’ cheese dog with BBQ sauce and caramelized onions. Other food offerings include: Giordano’s pizza, ice cream helmets, Buona beef and Hot Doug’s if you sit in the bleachers. I love Wrigley because you can grab phenomenal food, enjoy the second oldest ballpark and sing along to ‘Go Cubs Go’ with 40,000 of your closest friends when they win.
I go to Wrigley for the food and thats about it. Around the stadium is always extremely crowded and I try to avoid it at all costs. The hotdogs and nachos are pretty on point and I go once a season to get my fix.
As a lifelong Milwaukee Brewers fan, I never thought I'd step foot in Wrigley Field—let alone fall in love with the stadium and the team that calls it home.
Even though there's constant construction now, it's still an amazing place to see a baseball game. The bleachers are my favorite place to sit because you can really get a great view of the entire Wrigley Field.
Sitting in the stands, hanging out during a game and trying to flee if it happens to rain, sure, why not? After all, we gotta cheer on our Cubbies, who can't seem to catch a break. But this year's the year, right guys?
Its cozy size, easily accessible location and historic design elements make Wrigley Field one of the most unique ballparks in baseball. Though it hasn't been able to avoid the introduction of modern video displays and corporate influences, the Friendly Confines is still one of the best places to watch—i.e. actually pay attention to—a game. And say what you will about the drunken crowd on the Red Line, but having an El stop directly next to the stadium is incredibly convenient.
Attending a Cubs game at Wrigley Field feels more like a frat party than it does a sporting event. It's crawling with young men who seem to have forgotten their manners back at their state schools. That's changed a bit recently, with the Cubs playoff run last year and all.
