BCB's David Sameshima visited the area around Wrigley Field Saturday and filed this report.
I was able to make a visit to Wrigley on Saturday. I had forgotten that it was TBOX day, when I had mentioned to Al that I was planning on visiting Wrigley this Saturday. TBOX is the Twelve Bars of Christmas pub crawl, which has expanded to well beyond twelve bars. I went ahead anyway, since I had limited time, so the visit was going to be brief anyway.
I arrived around 3:00 p.m., and it was pretty tame in the neighborhood, for TBOX. The traffic was not that bad, and the sidewalks were not congested.
I didn't expect to see many changes, and there weren't any. They must have planned limited work, with TBOX taking place. They only had a few of the ballpark lights on, where normally all the lights have been on. I did not have time to do a complete walk around the ballpark, so my photos are limited to the Addison and Sheffield Avenue sides. We'll have more photos either later in the week or next weekend.
