(CHICAGO) Wrigley Field Plaza liquor sales limits have been unanimously recommended by a city council committee, with full city council approval expected today.
The limits will cut off liquor sales when a weekday game ends or an hour after a weekend game ends. In addition, you must also have a game ticket to get onto the plaza.
Alderman Tom Tunney (44th) is trying to prevent a rowdy beer garden.
“This is an incremental ordinance that allows us to get our feet wet, to crawl before we walk, before we run,” said Tunney.
However, Mike LuFrano of the Cubs said that the limits go to far.
“We don’t think we should be saying no just because the events get popular,” said LuFrano.
The Cubs are going along with the limits, for now, in hopes of negotiating a better deal later.
