The Chicago Bears are among the most storied franchises in the National Football League, with a championship in 1985 and many illustrious seasons since. The Bears also have some of the most passionate fans in the league, and home games at Soldier Field in Chicago are an incredible experience for even the newest of Bears fans.
Now that football season is in full swing, you might be pondering the purchase of tickets to see the Bears at Soldier Field. Planning your experience is easy if you know where to start so we’ve listed so helpful tips below.
1.Book Car Service To Avoid Parking At Soldier Field
Chicago is a big city, and if you’re driving in from out of town for the game, you might find yourself faced with a level of traffic and congestion that you aren’t used to.
You shouldn’t be saddled with the stress of navigating the unfamiliar traffic patterns or trying to find a parking spot when you’re supposed to be enjoying yourself. So what is the answer?
Chicago car service is the easiest way to guarantee yourself reliable, stress-free transportation throughout game day. Not only will your chauffeur be a local expert who knows the traffic patterns, shortcuts and easiest routes, he or she will also drop you off at the front of the stadium so the hunt for parking or the long walk to get to the stadium doors won’t put a kink in your enjoyment of the day.
The Soldier Field parking lot is unsurprisingly a place of much waiting, both to get out and to get in. If you have a chauffeur handling the driving, you won’t have to worry over a long wait to get to a parking spot or out of the parking lot when the game is over.
2.Find a Great Bar or Restaurant
When the game’s over, you might want to find a great restaurant or bar to get some food or grab a beer. Fortunately, Chicago is full of amazing after-game destinations where not only can you grab a brew and some delicious food, but you can also mix and mingle with fellow Bears fans.
Here are a few of our favorite after-game stops in the Windy City:
Mother Hubbard’s Sports Pub on Hubbard Street is a great place for Bears fans to mingle, meet up and enjoy a long list of delicious bar foods, like burgers, tacos, salads and more. Mother Hubbard’s is also open until 4 AM so you won’t have to clear out before you’re ready.
Sneaker’s Sports Bar and Grill in Franklin Park, IL is another outstanding place to stop in after a Bears game. Sneaker’s offers a wide variety of foods, from traditional bar snacks and dishes to full meals like Bourbon skirt steak and Cajun pasta. They also have a variety of beers, tons of televisions and a generally lively atmosphere to help complete your Chicago Bears experience.
Max’s Wine Dive is a great option if you aren’t looking to go the sports bar route after the Bears game. The Wine Dive has a ton of (you guessed it) different types of wine, as well as an impressive menu of comfort foods that are made with the finest ingredients. Think fried chicken, stuffed peppers and mashed potatoes. You can even pair your chosen dish with an accompanying wine.
Chicago is a great city to visit, and is even more fun when you have tickets to see the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Preparing for your game day experience by acquiring reliable, safe transportation to and from the game. Finding a great restaurant or sports bar to unwind and enjoy a meal is also an important part of a great game day.
