    Cubs v Cards

    My wife got us bleacher seats to the Cubs Cards game on Friday for our anniversary. I know that if you want a front row, you typically have to get there 2 hours before the gates open (4 hours total before first pitch). But with the Cards series, is this any different? I'm assuming it is. Anyone with experience or knowledge of the situation care to help me out?

    From the one time I was in the bleachers for one, it isn't any different. Was there 2 hours beforehand and got front row seats. One thing to remember when picking your seats, the vendors don't walk up and down the rows in the bleachers selling beer, so don't get stuck in the middle of a section. I made that mistake.

    My favorite seat in the entire stadium is front row bleachers right next to the bushes in left center. So unfortunately it goes against everything you just recommended, but in the past I've had good success with walking up the side by the bushes to go get a beer. Thanks for the advice though.
