I've tried and failed the past few times to make it to opening day at Wrigley, I'm embarrased to say I haven't been in the confines since the magical 2008 season. This year, after not taking a vacation in 10 months, friends and I have decided that this is it, we're doing it. We're flying in from all corners of the country to fullfil a mildly achievable dream of ours. Since none of us have attended an opening day game, we're looking for some info listed below. Any extra information or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
Pre-game activities/traditions such as morning activities in Wrigleyville on the 5th? Post-game activities? We're also attending the Saturday game, and since we haven't been in the area in years, is there any decent lodging located near by?
Again any helpful tips/rec's/advice is greatly appreciated and I'll see you guys April 5th!
