Lakeview Itinerary (1 of 5)

If you couldn’t get tickets to the game don’t worry because Cubs games don’t just happen at Wrigley Field; they happen all over Wrigleyville. If you’re the type that screams at the television and think you can bat better than the professionals then you might want to check out Sluggers. Along with a great beer selection, party atmosphere, and countless televisions, Sluggers houses batting cages upstairs. Yes, alcohol and batting cages don’t seem like a good idea until you step into the batter’s box at Sluggers and ask why more sports bars don’t do the same.

One of the highlights of this beautiful Gothic-Revival church is the blue ceiling with the golden starburst-like ribwork.
