Going to a Chicago Cubs game or even watching it with family at home over has become quite the celebration with fans, what are the essentials for every fan?

The last game I attended at Wrigley Field reminded me of going to a Jimmy Buffett concert as I watched fans walk by in the craziest fashions. These days, fans are becoming ever more comfortable expressing themselves, relaxing and having fun on a visit to the Friendly Confines. This takes the shape of face painting, exotic Cubs hats, Cubs Aloha shirts, beach balls, dancing, stripping, and getting wasted with sometimes loud and obnoxious results.

Alternatively, through northern Indiana and Ohio, up toward Iowa and as far as Hawaii, everywhere across the good ‘ole USA where there is no Wrigley Field. Cubs fans get together to watch important matchups with division rivals like the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals as if it were a Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers game.

Now don’t get me wrong. I would always ‘rather be at Wrigley,’ but if I couldn’t be there, than I would instead be watching the matchups over on a 4K television with some ethnic food that could make my mouth drool a whole other lake for Chicago.  Whether we are watching the game at Wrigley Field or chilling in the homestead with the family, these are the top 5 everyday essentials every Cubs fan needs.
