Wrigleyville bars are packed ahead of World Series games
The baseball world descends on Chicago for the weekend as World Series Games 3, 4 and 5 will be hosted at Wrigley Field.
It will be the first time in 71 years that the Wrigley Field has hosted a World Series game and the fans are excited.
Even with several Wrigleyville bars charging upwards to $250 to just get in the doors, fans lined up early in the morning to get in.
Here’s some shots of the lines and bars as early as 5:30 a.m., just 14 or so hours before the scheduled first pitch:
I knew the Cubs in the World Series would be big I'm just not sure we all realized how big. This is this morning at 5:30 am. pic.twitter.com/uqqImiBT5i

That’s just for a weekday. With two more games this weekend we expect it to get even crazier on both Saturday and Sunday.
Stay safe folks!
