For all games before mid-June, we recommend bringing a warm jacket or winter sweater. Wrigley can be cold early in the season! We also recommend dressing in layers for the game and bringing a cap (early afternoon sun). And don't worry about any dress code when visiting our office or about storing your bags either -- we can keep them for you locked up during the game. Most important, drum role please...don't even think about wearing Brewers, Cardinals or Reds colors or attire! That's one sure way to earn the wrath of the Spend Matters team in our coverage (though Sheena says you can wear Mariners gear since they don't play the Cubs). Such a sartorial decision would be even worse than strong-arming suppliers by raising network fees that are out of their control...
