AVOID THE HASSLE.
Looking for what’s happening today in the Windy City…look no further…it’s the CHICAGO CUBS HOME OPENER.   If you don’t have tickets it is probably too late to score any unless you want to part with big bucks.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the day and game in WRIGLEYVILLE.  If you’re smart, you’ll take public transportation or walk or bike.

BIKE VALET.
The Chicago Cubs offer a free courtesy bike valet service for all Cubs home game located on the northeast corner of Clark and Waveland.

GAME DAY, ALL DAY.
HOUNDSTOOTH SALOON OPENING DAY SPECIALS.
A little out of the main drag but still in Wrigleyville is HOUNDSTOOTH SALOON.  This pub brings a bit of the South to Chicago’s north side.  Today’s home opener specials include $15 buckets of Coronas, $5 Bud Lights and $4 Old Styles. The pub style menu features all the usual suspects with a Tex-Mex edge.  Be forewarned, if you’re not a fan of country or the South, this may not be the place for you as you can expect to hear Sweet Home Alabama played ad-nausium. 3369 N. Clark, (773) 244 1166.

NOT YOUR TYPICAL COFFEE HOUSE.
If you want to get away from the maddening crowd but still be in the middle of everything, UNCOMMON GROUND may be your answer.  Part of the Wrigleyville neighborhood since 1991, this grown-up (but not too-grown-up) restaurant offers an uncommon selection of organic vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices plus what just may be the best bloody Mary in town.  They offer a full drink menu with wine, beer and cocktails.  A new and special  offering is their AGRIPOLITAN cocktail that mixes seasonal fruits with Rain Organic Vodka in a martini glass.  Not only will you enjoy this healthy cocktail but 50-cents from each AGRIPOLITAN goes towards building a community orchard in Chicago.  Along with the food and drink, enjoy the art of local artist, Jaime Gartelos and open mic music from 8 to 10p.m. 3800 N. Clark, (773) 929 3680.

NOT A BASEBALL FAN…GET DOWN AND DIRTY…
Gardener’s Alert!  Get the latest dirt on how to landscape your outdoor space at a FREE seminar, “A Garden for Every Home,” with Susan Kegan of Christy Webber Landscapes at the Avalon Branch Library.  Participants will learn about front and back lawn landscaping, sustainable planting, flower boxes and more.  8148 S. Stony Island Ave. 6:30p.m. to 7:45.  Registration required. (312) 822 0505 or reservations@chicagobungalow.org.
