With the Chicago Cubs having won the 2016 World Series, Wrigleyville or the area around Wrigley Field is a hot destination. There are new restaurants and a hotel is planned and under construction. I will keep posted as I try the new spots. A fun BBQ spot that I really enjoyed, just closed.
You should try catching a Cubs game or attend a concert during the summer at Wrigley Field. I just went to a game with the St. Louis Cardinals and a Billy Joel concert with friends. Both were great fun.
