A kid's cooking class, minor league sluggers and $1 hot dogs come to Wrigley Field

Taking the whole family to a Cubs game can be a seriously pricey proposition. The tickets prices, transportation costs, and food really add up quickly -- which is why I think that Chicago-area families will be thrilled to hear about this great (and super affordable) opportunity to visit Wrigley Field.

On Sunday, August 9th, Wrigley Field is hosting a minor league game between the Iowa Cubs and the Las Vegas 51's. Tickets start at $5 (can't beat that). Throughout the game, hot dogs are $1 each (another deal!).

But wait, that's not all. Before the game, Levy Restaurants is offering a kid's cooking class in the stadium where the first 100 kiddos can learn how to make peanut butter granola balls and fruit kebobs while wearing cute chef's hats.

Oh, and did I say that the kids under the age of fourteen will get to run the bases after the game? Yeah, that's right. Your kids will get a chance to be on the actual field and run the bases -- is dad going to be jealous or what?
