I grew up watching the Chicago Cubs, Harry Carey, and whichever celebrity would butcher "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" at the seventh inning stretch and the team rarely saw a post season beyond the ivy at Wrigley Field. Yes, there was 2003, when an unsuspecting fan by the name of Steve Bartman reached for a foul ball, bobbled it, and Moises Alou lost out on making a critical catch in the Cubs' series with the eventual World Series champs Florida Marlins. Fast forward to 2015 and one Cubs fan is getting a little leeway on his midterm exam so he can see Chicago take on Pittsburgh this week.

The West Side Nut Club hosts its 94th annual Fall Festival all this week on Franklin Street. While there is a ridiculous variety of food to choose from, there are five items I have to have each and every year.
They say you never forget your first time. When it comes to the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, this is especially true. I remember a few years ago, when I first set foot onto West Franklin, I was overwhelmed as most are. I suggest these five simple rules when making your first Fall Festival excursion.
