A group of friends and I are looking to make a weekendish trip to Wrigley this year. I'm the only member of the group that has been before. We don't really care about a particular series. Would like to do Thurs-Fri-Sat, but I know there aren't many Thursday home games that precede weekend home series (2 of which are the Cardinals, if memory serves). Considering all of that, does anyone think we need to use the presale? I chatted with someone on Cubs.com earlier today. They said that since we didn't care about specific games, we would be fine to wait until the normal sale and just call.
Having been to Wrigley before, and having sat in multiple areas, I don't really care where we sit. That being said, what's the best option for value AND cool seats for first timers? Sorry for all the questions. I've never done this before, and search wasn't very kind to me.
First timers, presumably of drinking age? Have to go with bleacher seats. You should be fine on the normal sale, although the Cardinal games are the ones that are most likely going to go first. Looking over the schedule, June 7/8/9 (Phillies, Pirates x2) or August 23/24/25 (Cincy x3) would probably lead to more reasonably priced tickets, either in the regular sale or through Stubhub. Obviously the Cardinals would be the best atmosphere, but assuming the Cubs play like they're supposed to, any summer weekend game will be packed.
