The New York Yankees that is. It’s been eight years since the Cubs hosted the Yankees for inter-league play at Wrigley Field. When the Yankees visited the Cubs in 2003, the two teams had not met in over 60 years, and the series was greeted with great fanfare. And at the Old Chicago Inn we are delighted to be hosting fans of both teams for this latest match up over the third weekend in June. (Three games will be played June 17-19).
If you’re traveling to the Inn that weekend, and don’t have tickets for the series yet, be sure to check out the great ticket packages offered by our sister business: Trader Todd’s Restaurant and Bar, just two doors south of the Inn at 3216 N. Sheffield. Trader Todd’s has ticket packages which include two tickets (section 524), lunch before the game, and shuttle service to the field. Tickets packages for the Yankees series are sold via eBay:http://stores.ebay.com/tradertodds
On Saturday, June 18, the Old Chicago Inn will also be hosting a post-game cocktail hour at Trader Todd’s at 7pm in their beer garden. Come and enjoy complimentary beverages and appetizers, meet all of the staff, and mingle with your fellow guests. We’ll also have a drawing for an old Chicago Inn gift certificate, good for a future stay!
