SeriesPreview: Brewers @ Cubs 26-29

The Brewers(37-39) and Cubs(28-46) start a three game series at the ballpark tonite. I cannot muster much beyond that for this series. The fact that the Cubs find themselves 8 games behind the Brewers entering this 4 game set is pretty funny.

1060w's Establishment Profile
In an attempt to give back to you the reader, 1060west is going to profile a Wrigleyville neighborhood restaurant/bar before select home series. So when you can't enjoy the season or the games, you might as well enjoy an adult beverage or three to make the play on the field look better. Anyways, we hope to give those of you (21 and above of course) going to the ballgame the opportunity to be "happy" while you watch one of the worst teams in the history of the Chicago National League Ballclub. Here goes.

Neybours on Southport is a great place to go before or after ballgames.(photo by Vehere)

Neybours at 3651 N. Southport(a few doors south of Southport & Waveland) is a great place to go before or after a Cubs game. Neybours is a small/quaint pub that is far enough away from the hustle and bustle right next to the park. On a gameday you can actually hear the people you are talking to. You can also usually find a place to sit down. You can grab a table out front in the beer garden and enjoy watching the passerbys on Southport. (for full diclosure this is a UW bar during college football season)

Menu - The menu at Neybours is a surprise. It's pub grub with a twist. Menu includes salads and wraps for those of you watching your figure. The macaroni-jambalaya is a favorite of many regulars and unique. For appetizer you can't go wrong with my favorite the buffalo calamari.

Waitstaff - The staff is very good, fast and friendly

Beer Selection - A real surprise for a tavern of this size. You can actually get Fat Tire at Neybours.

Your thoughts and comments on anything are always appreciated.
