Cubs in Fall Classic; where will you watch (a potential) Game 5?

Unless the Cubs (or Indians) sweep, game five of the World Series will be played at Wrigley Field on Sunday, October 30th … the night before Halloween. First pitch is set for 7:08 PM with a probable pitching matchup of Cubs ace Jon Lester versus the Tribe’s Corey Kluber… and it could be an elimination game. As a Cubs fan, how do you spend the last couple of hours leading up to that matchup?

By listening to horror stories at The Harp & Fiddle in Park Ridge, natch. You’re invited to Halloween Eve at The Harp & Fiddle from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, featuring stories from Bram Stoker Award®-winner John Everson, International Latino Book Award-winner Cynthia Pelayo … and I’ll be reading from my ghosts and gangsters novel, THE BLACKENING OF FLESH, just minutes before Lester (probably) takes the bump.

When the read wraps up, settle in and watch some history-in-the-making at The Harp & Fiddle (if the first four games are split in any way). With two dozen beers on tap and brand-new TVs and surround sound, you can share the evening with your fellow fans. And let’s be honest: being a Cubs fan is a social thing—a thing lifted between friends from one generation to the next since Ulysses S. Grant was in the White House.

So call your buddies. Gather up the family. It’s the World Series and anything can happen, but if there’s a Game 5, watch it at The Harp & Fiddle in Park Ridge. Even if there’s a sweep, though, here’s a surefire bet: there will still be scary good times on Halloween Eve with John Everson, Cynthia Pelayo, and THE BLACKENING OF FLESH. I’ll see you there, starting at 5:00 PM. No tickets necessary, but bring money for food and drinks … and maybe a couple of books!
