Batter up! White Sox season is here. Going to the game and back, is hardly the full White Sox experience. Make a day of it with the game day line-up below. Start your morning with a full meal. Next, pick up some much-needed team gear and get in the pre-game spirit with a drink. Finally, go to the game and celebrate the victory at Cork & Kerry.

We’ve even included a handy map to keep you on route!

Stop #1: Rocky’s Sports Restaurant

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So don’t even think about skipping it! You have a long adventure ahead of you. Rocky’s opens at 11:00 a.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday. That leaves plenty of time to grab a bite before the big game. Start off with a sandwich or burger or on Sundays, take advantage of the $10 brunch buffet. Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas are almost always on special. Located only 3 blocks from U.S. Cellular Field, on game days, there’s even a free shuttle to the ballpark.

Just a few minutes walk from Grandstand, outside Gate 5 at U.S. Cellular Field is the newly opened Bacardi At The Park. Open to both ticket holders and non-ticket holders, this is a great spot to grab a drink or snack before heading in to the game. With indoor/outdoor seating and tons of TV screens, you’ll want to come back even when you don’t have tickets to a game. If all of that shopping worked up your appetite, try the amazing food. Ribs and Angus Beef are just a couple of the must-have menu options.
