Maxwell Street polish dogs, Chicago prairie dogs and Italian beef will be on the menu Wednesday night for fans gathering to watch Game 7 of the World Series at Prairie Dogs Minneapolis.
The restaurant is just one of several gathering spots around the Twin Cities offering food and drink specials themed for Chicago Cubs fans. The Cubs and Cleveland Indians play the decisive Game 7 at 7 p.m.
The Cubs last won a World Series in 1907 and the Indians in 1948. The long droughts have fans eager to celebrate with their communities scattered across the country.
Chris & Rob’s Chicago’s Taste Authority in South Minneapolis will extend its hours Wednesday to accommodate for baseball fans. They tweeted Wednesday morning “We will be open tonight until the end of the game. We will have food & drink specials.”
Alary’s Bar in St. Paul has traditionally been known as a Chicago sports bar and recent updates have reportedly transitioned it into a family friendly spot to watch a game. Champs in Eden Prairie is a spot Chicago fans gather.
MacKenzie’s in Minneapolis is the hub for Cleveland football fans and might be a destination for Indians supporters. Cincinnati Bengals fans meet up at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park and could be another spot for Ohio baseball fans.
Kieran’s, Hubert’s and The Loon Cafe in downtown Minneapolis have been popular spots to watch Twins games during the regular season. The Bulldog is another hot gathering spot in St. Paul.
Wherever you land, just be happy you don’t have to pay a $100 cover like many bars in Chicago are charging.
Let us know where you plan to watch tonight’s game.
