City to host Cubs watch parties

cubs

You don't have to sit at home alone to watch the Chicago Cubs play the Cleveland Indians in the World Series, thanks to the City of Evanston.

Instead, you can go to one of the four free watch parties to be held at the Chandler-Newberger Center, Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, Levy Center, and Robert Crown Center for the following games:

Game 1: Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.)
Game 2: Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.)
Game 3: Friday, Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.)
Game 4: Saturday, Oct. 29 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.)
Game 5: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.) (if necessary)
Game 6: Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.) (if necessary)
Game 7: Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 6:30 p.m. (game begins at 7 p.m.) (if necessary)

The Chandler-Newberger Center is located at 1028 Central St.; the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center is located at 1655 Foster St.; the Levy Senior Center is located at 300 Dodge Ave.; and the Robert Crown Center is located at 1701 Main St.

You can enjoy free popcorn at all four centers, and the Levy Center will also serve complimentary hot dogs. But you'll need money for the vending machines if you get thirsty.

And when the Cubs win it all, the city's emergency sirens will sound.
