Chicago Cubs: All you can eat and drink – with amazing views all around

If you’re a fan who looks forward to busting out a scorecard and pencil at the ballpark, then the rooftops surrounding Wrigley Field probably aren’t your scene.

But if you’re looking to capitalize on a sunny summer afternoon and want to cap your spending – this is the move. For the cost of admission, you get rooftop seating, all-you-can-eat menus (that include alcohol) and reprieve from the sun or weather, as well. Rooftops have a lengthy history in Wrigleyville and, now, are almost entirely owned by the Ricketts family.

Of course, following the completion of the 1060 Project, half of these rooftops now offer a stunning view of… the back of the two enormous video boards in left and right field. That was a major point of contention during the renovation – but the Cubs came out on top in legal battles.

If you’re sitting in any of the rooftops on Sheffield, if you climb to the top of them, you can usually get a pretty stunning view of the Chicago skyline looking south toward the city. The older I get, the more I appreciate all the rooftops have to offer – and if you haven’t done one, you should definitely try it out at least once.
