- The Cubbie Dog, which was before 2005 my pregame eatery of choice. You could get a hot dog, fries, and a drink for $3.99. Now out of business.
- Quizno's Subs, currently my pregame eatery of choice.
- Location of 2004-???? semi-season tickets (aisle 239).
- The Addison Red Line stop. When I lived in the south loop, I'd ride the El to this stop to go to Cubs games. Now I walk.
- Two pizza joints across the street from each other. I watched portions of Games 6 and 7 of the 2003 NLCS here.
- Waveland Ave. I've ball-hawked here (unsuccesfully). I also stood out here on the street for portions of Games 6 and 7 of the 2003 NLCS.
- This is where I was standing during the infamous 8th inning collapse during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS. WGN had set out some TV monitors for fans.
- I visit this hats and jerseys store a few times each year after games.
- Clark and Sheffield. This is a fork in the road when I walk to the park: sometimes I go in gate D (Addison and Sheffield), and other times I go in gate F (Addison and Clark).
- This McDonalds is a common destination for me both before and after games.
- This is where I sat during Game 4 of the 2004 NLDS.
- This is where I sat during Game 1 of the 2003 NLCS (upper deck).
- This is where Daniel Bortnick and I were sitting when the Cubs clinched the Central Division championship in September, 2003.
- This is where I took in my first Cubs game from the bleachers. I have never sat in the right or center field bleachers.
- This is where I was standing when Sammy Sosa hit his 60th home run in 1998.
- This is where I was sitting when they retired Ron Santo's number 10 in 2003 (upper deck).
- This is where I was sitting during the first game at Wrigley Field after September 11, 2001 (lower deck). I still have a hat from the game with a little flag patch on the side.
- This is the location of the best concession stand for both the upper and lower decks. It's also where the press box is, and many a time have I seen Harry Carey lead Take Me Out To The Ballgame from here.
- My dad caught a foul ball hit by former Cubs catcher Scott Servais while he was sitting here (upper deck). I was at the game with him, but had gone for a walk to the other side of the ballpark when it was hit.
- I have bought five-dollar tickets off of scalpers on multiple occasions on this street corner (after the game has started, of course).
- I have never figured out why, but there is a White Sox advertisement on the side of this building.
- This area of the field was patrolled for over a decade by my favorite Cub of all time, Ryne Sandberg.
