“Go Cubs Go…Go Cubs Go…Hey Chicago what do YOU say?
Cubs are going to win TODAY!”
You can’t have #SummertimeCHI without a trip to the ballpark! Whether you’re a Northside Cubs fan or a Southside Sox’s fan…summer is not complete without a baseball game filled with yummy food and libation of your choice.
My friend and I decided to ditch the workday and head to a Friday afternoon Cubs game. A little birdie told me about RateYourSeats.com, so we decided to try it out for our ticket purchase. Rateyourseats.com is not just for baseball events. I was also eyeing the NASCAR Chicago race and Drake concert coming up. The site has a wide range of events to choose from. Just type what you’re looking for in the search box and see what options pop up. It’s really cool that you can view the seats on an actual map of the stadium.
On https://www.rateyourseats.com/tickets/chicago-cubs the ticket prices are set by the sellers which means the tickets can be higher or lower than face value price. Think about this scenario… if you bought tickets to an event and can no longer go. You’d rather get some money than no money, so a lot of times you can find discounted tickets on this site. Also, as the name suggests…you can “Rate your seats” to help future ticket purchasers.
Our tickets were delivered straight to my email address. So simple and easy! I saved the tickets to my Apple wallet for even easier access. Our seats were in the 400 section, but judging by the online map it looked like a great view of the field… and it was. 🙂 We had an awesome view of the field and all the action. Guess who was in town and threw the first pitch of the game….Nascar Star Bubba Wallace. Also, the Cubs won against the Cleaveland Guardians. Want to head to a Cubs game this summer?
