One thing we know about Chicago is that it is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, football cities in the country. That's why SB Nation and Dhani Jones will be making Soldier Field one of the stops on their tour of great NFL cities. The best part? We want to immerse ourselves into the football culture, meet the fans, hit up the sports bars, check out the stadium... Anything and everything related to the Chicago Bears!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 10th. That morning, SB Nation studios and their team will arrive at Soldier Field to do some taping, interviews, etc, and we want YOU to show up! We are working on getting some free giveaways, tours of the stadium, etc, so make sure to check back with us early and often to see what the itinerary will be.
In the meantime, a couple of things I'd like to find out from you:
1- One of the focuses on the trip is to try and connect with die-hard fans. We want to hear stories... Maybe you've got a unique relationship with the team, some long-standing family traditions, a connection that you would want to share with our audience. If you have a story that you would like to tell, email me!
2- This is a question that comes up a LOT for people visiting the city... Where are the BEST places to watch a Chicago Bears game (outside of Soldier Field of course!)? Any local neighborhood pubs, sports bars, restaurants, etc that you know about? We are looking for tradition, excitement, culture... Not big chains, but the real deal places that the film crew need to visit. If you know of some places - the best of the best- then drop that info into the comment section below and tell us why that place can't be missed.
Thanks for your help in advance, and don't forget to mark your calendars! This will be a great time to not only interact with the SBN team, but to meet other WCGers that maybe you've never met before!
