WRIGLEYVILLE — The Cubs are moving on to the National League Championship Series against the LA Dodgers, and as it did during the National League Division Series, the Park at Wrigley planned to host viewings of all away games on the big screen.
But due to inclement weather, viewings of Games 1 and 2 (7:08 p.m. Saturday and 6:38 p.m. Sunday) at the park have been canceled.
The Budweiser Brickhouse Tavern and Lucky Dorr, both establishments in the Park at Wrigley building, will be open and showing the game, and as usual, fans have their pick of Wrigleyville sports bars for watching.
The Cubs will return home Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (if necessary), and Games 6 and 7 will take place at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 21 and 22, if necessary. The Park at Wrigley plans to show those final away games of the series.
Tickets are required to enter the Park at Wrigley for away game viewings. They cost $10, and net proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Cubs Charities. Fans can buy no more than four tickets, and children 2 and younger are free. Seating is limited.
Park at Wrigley gates will open an hour before the start of the broadcast and will close at the end of the event. Fans can buy food and beverages, including alcohol, and there will be select giveaways.
Event parking is free on a first-come, first-served basis in the Toyota Camry Lot at 1126 W. Grace St.
More information on the viewings, prohibited items and how to buy tickets can be found online.
