    Booked tour directly through MLB/Cubs. Great trip through its history. Must do for any baseball fan. Learned about the rooftop bleachers and visitors clubhouse. Tour guide did not have amplification so it was hard to hear him at times. Had a snack at neat local spot called Wrigleyville dogs (on N Clark) before the tour then had a larger meal at Murphys Bleachers tavern (right behind centerfield) on corner of Waveland/Sheffield. Great place with lots of memorabilia.

    The Mercury Theater is a very quaint and intimate theater. There isn’t a bad seat in the house. The sound was excellent. I attended the Women of Soul production; it was awesome.

    What a great little theater with huge character, and a nice size lounge area…From the outside the theater looks uninviting. It’s an older theater that features International films. However, upon entry (we were looking for a place to have drinks prior to our play) we were pleasantly surprised. The theater has a full bar, a spacious lounge area, and friendly staff. The lounge was so warm and comfy…it can be rented for private events!!!

    We were at the rooftops on Saturday and had a blast! The only complaint was the chicken was a bit over cooked. We enjoyed the wide variety of food and drink and loved the outdoor seating. The male bartenders were great, as was the food service staff! Great times, great memories!

    It was all I could do to keep from leaping to my feet to applaud various segments during each act. This theater company is superb. Close in seating adds to the engagement with the actors. The scene between the Queen and PM Thatcher was the most memorable I've witnessed on any stage on three continents...I wanted to yell hoorah but kept my tongue. Just go and enjoy!

    We went here to see the Blue Man Group. It was a very unusual and interesting show. The people we were with didn't think it was up to the previous Blue Man show that they had seen, but we had no comparison so we thought it was a bit of fun. The theatre is very basic with scaffold style appearance. There is a small bar and a small gift shop. They are very strict about showing covid certificates and wearing masks.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my Wrigleyville visit/experience. There’s several great little bars and shops to visit. It a nice complement to Wrigley Field.

    There’s a reason why this show has stood the test of multiple decades. It’s just fun and entertaining AND family friendly.

    The music (heavy in percussion of course) is also great. Lots of energy and fun vibes. And, it’s not uncomfortably loud (it’s loud but my ears weren’t ringing afterwards).

    Nice venue, very cozy. Bartenders were great but there's NO straws here (damn sea turtles lol) and even they were upset at that. Show was great. Bathrooms are totally sketch: Porta-potties lined up next to each other. At least there was an attendant to tell you which one was open lol. And when everything is over, there's a great Taco Bell across the street

    My husband and I and our good friend were able to see August Wilson's "Fences" at the Wit.

    The theater we were in has very limited seating and is very "up close and personal". Very "readers' theatre--esque". Great for one side, probably not so great for the other side. Luckily, we arrived early for the open seating and snagged great seats.

    The cast of "Fences" is awesome! Every actor was mesmerizing. We've seen the big screen version and I have to say Denzel and Viola get a run for their money from Kamal Bolden and Shanesia Davis! Always better live!

    We held an event on one of the rooftops for 150 people. The facility is split into three floors with and indoor bar, outdoor bar and bleachers overlooking the park to see the game. Everyone that attended had a good time and the overall feedback on the event was very positive. I would suggest holding events here in the future!

    Laughed hard at all the scenes about people you DEFINITELY have met in a bar. The drinking games were fun and left me feeling great.
