Interest in CHAOS White Sox Tailgate

Hey guys,

Jeff and I were talking about the tailgate bash that Baderbrau has for the Sox vs. Cubs game and we thought it be cool to possibly plan a CHAOS outing to see the Sox play and to tailgate before hand. The idea is to brew some beer to serve, grill some food, and have a grand ol'time before going to the stadium to see the game or to walk around to check out the craft beer stalls/Kraft Cave. Before this divulges into a trash talking forum between baseball team allegiances, I just want to emphasize that this would be a pretty awesome thing to do once the summer starts. The tickets are cheap, the parking lot is ample to set up tents, and baseball is much more enjoyable once you're sauced on some home brews. The speicifc game we would attend is up for debate but I wanted guage interest first.

Tickets won't be as cheap but

Tickets won't be as cheap but we could look into do it for a crosstown game (6 games this year)

The Cubs will host the White Sox at Wrigley Field May 11-13 of 2018 with the return series coming at Guaranteed Rate Field September 21-23.

Fantastic idea, guys! Any

Fantastic idea, guys! Any game, I'm in. This is a great excuse for me to brew my world-renowned Mexican Honey Lager! Now if we can just get the 23 kegs out of the lagering fridge ...

I'm interested. I can park for "free" across the street if we need additional transport.

The Crosstown Classic would

The Crosstown Classic would be awesome! Saturday is mostly sold out with lower level tickets at $90-$105 but the nosebleed seats are $39-$50. However, the Sunday game (9/23) has lower level seats for $79-$90 and nosebleeds $35-$50.The Crosstown classic is probably teh most expensive game of teh season. i looked at other games in August and September and teh ickets for lower level seats are $28.

Do we have any idea when the summer party is? It would be best to have the outing a week or two after the party.

I don’t personally care enough to pay to see them play the cubs, but I’m down for a regular game.

If the tickets are too expensive I'll just hang out with the leftover homebrew :)

We can come over to my lab

We can come over to my lab and autoclave stuff and use the ultrasonic cleaner. That sounds like just as much fun, right?

 

Right, guys?

Okay,

Okay,

I have two suggestion for the games.

Saturday July 28 @ 6:10 p.m. against the Blue Jays:

It's late enough that the sun won't kill us all, tickets for the outfield  (lower level) are $20-$25, and they will have fireworks. An added bonus would be that we can promote the summer party as people pass by our sweet set up.

Sunday Sept 2nd @ 1:15 p.m. against the Red Sox (lesser sox):

Early enough to have fun and be home at a decent time unless you are off on Monday (Labor Day). The outfield tickets are $15 and game should be pretty good.

This might get me to a Sox

This might get me to a Sox game. The Sept 2nd would be my only option, though. So few people go to their games that I think it would be part of our charitable mission to attend. And there's always a chance they may call on you or one of the other 25 fans in attendance to come in as relief in the late innings.

Damn Rich, the hate is strong

Damn Rich, the hate is strong. Okay, September 2nd it is and I am aiming for everyone to confirm and send money by June 14th. As far as the price, I will email a Sox rep to see what the group rate is. .

If I can do a fantasy draft

If I can do a fantasy draft while tailgating at Jimmy Buffett, we can do one while tailgating at a Sox game. (Says the guy who came in 10th place that year.)

Anything but July 28th works

Anything but July 28th works for me. There must be a TON of weddings on the south side. Saw they had 974 people show up to a game a couple weeks ago. Cubs games generally have that many in any one bathroom between innings I think. Sept 8th looks good.
