New Weekend Hours For North Siders Favorite Bar?
That's what Lou Piniella and Cubs Chairman Crane Kenney (Sounds like a law firm to me) are pushing the city of Chicago to consider. With the 20th aniversary of the first night game coming up this Friday, Lou is hoping that the city will be flexible with their schedule:
"There are certain times during the course of a season where exceptions should be made for night games [on weekends]. Not all the time, but look at the schedule and there are a handful of games where you're coming in late in the morning. Like when we came in from Arizona [at 5 a.m.]. You could use a night game on Friday to get your breath a little bit.
We'll see. It makes sense to me."
Makes sense to me too, Lou. Because of the neighborhood, the Cubs are limited to 30 night games a year.
That's funny. I thought it would have been because of incidents involving violence and alcohol.
