The Cubs continue to find new revenue that they will not have to share with MLB's other clubs. According to today's Bright One Alderman Tom Tunney and Andy MacPhail have agreed to have Buffet play concerts at the Friendly Confines on Friday night and Sunday night Labor Day Weekend 2005.
Like anything else, in the City where the motto is "where's mine", all of this comes at a price. The Cubs will "donate" $150,000 of the gate to neighborhood schools and they will "donate" 3,000 tickets to neighbors. Not much of a chance that Vehere or any of the good Wrigleyville neighbors will see these ducats. These tix are heading right to Tunney campaign contributors and cronies. You cannot beat Chicago politics.
