Wrigley Bar Asking for Charity Donations Instead of Huge Cover for Cubs Postseason Games

The covers most Wrigleyville bars charge on Chicago Cubs game days is no joke, and then prices skyrocket when the home team makes it to the playoffs. Well, there’s one Wrigley bar that doesn’t play that way, and better yet, they’re giving back to their community instead of taking from it.

GMan Tavern is located at 3740 N Clark St. in Chicago. Last year during the World Series when other bars were charging up to $250 cover charges, GMan only asked for a $5 donation to Chicago’s Lakeview Pantryand it was such a great success they’re doing it again this postseason.



Last year the tavern was able to donate over $10,000 to Lakeview Pantry, and GMan’s owner Joe Shanahan told dnainfo Chicago their reason for doing this is simple:

“We want to make it clear that the Cubs’ success is the neighborhood’s success. We’ve called Wrigleyville home for 35 years, and we want to continue to enrich a neighborhood that has embraced us so wholeheartedly.

If you’re planning a trip to Chicago to soak in the Cubs postseason action, better plan on getting to GMan early. No doubt the place will be packed!

Go, Cubs, Go!!
