1. You know Western Avenue’s pubs like the back of your hand.
Cork and Kerry’s beer garden is your stomping ground and everyone knows you by name at Keegan’s Pub.
2. You know the Crosstown Classic is the only time you’d civilly drink with Cubs fans (well, sort of).
Tailgating before the game is just as, if not more, important than the game itself. The classic north vs south side rivalry is serious, so serious in fact that throughout the year, fights between Cubs and White Sox fans routinely break out in unassuming bars, restaurants, and grocery stores. During the Crosstown Classic, though, you’ve shared tailgating space with your enemies and have even joined them for an Old Style or game of bean bags.
