Little help with Chicago trip?

Hey all... I am making my first trip back to Wrigley in 28 years. I have tickets to the Sunday night game vs the Red Sox, but will be in town from Fri afternoon thru Monday. Looking for some advice/help in a couple of areas...

I will be traveling with two friends, and as of yet, do not have solid lodging plans.. I have friends in Round Lake, but after hearing that the train ride is 1.5 hrs each way, and with both games being at night, this doesn't seem like a very good option. That being said, if anyone has suggestions for a hotel that has suites with reasonable rates and is close to the park, or close to good public trans, I'd really appreciate your input...

We are also looking for tickets to Saturday's game. I have never sat in the bleachers, so if anyone can help out in that regard, I'll have my friends give you a foot massage! Tickets on Stubhub are RIDICULOUSLY expensive, and I'm a brokeassmofo.

Of course, hints on stuff to do around the ballpark would be cool, I was a teenager when I lived in Chicago, so I have no idea what the hell to do beforehand, but want to have some fun and show my boys a good time!

Thanks in advance!
