Join us in Chicago on Saturday, March 8 at Monti’s on the North Side of Chicago for two hours of pizza, cheesesteak, and baseball talk.

I’ll be co-hosting with Ken Funck, Mauricio Rubio from our Fantasy staff, and Jordan Gorosh of our Prospect staff.

We’ll be joined by friends who all have great insights into Midwest League baseball. Wayne Randazzo (radio voice of the Kane County Cougars), John Arguello (Chicago Now’s Cubs Den), Adam Brown (Chicago sports blogger and both a Cubs and Cougars season ticket holder), Sahadev Sharma (ESPNChicago.com, Vine Line, and Bleacher Nation), and Brian A. Sakowski (Perfect Game).

There will be free pizza and cheesesteak while supplies last.

We figured a genuine Philly joint would keep us from going too far into the Chicago-centric world. You can also bring your favorite device and stream MLB.tv coverage of the Brewers/Royals Cactus League game to further diversify the mood.

The details:
Saturday, March 8, 2014
3:00-5:00 pm Central Time

Nice. I can get off the Edens before it merges with the Kennedy.

yep, I figured Lawrence would be an easy access to the city. Glad that it helps!

Hooray! We'll see if the cheesesteaks are as good as Philly's Best!

I think these are a cut above Philly's Best ... they're addictive, too.

better than Philly's Best? I just had it for lunch today and I can't imagine anyone outside of Pat's and Geno's doing it better.

A 2 block walk to a place I'd go to anyways on a Saturday? Yikes! Does the BP staff now predict my social engagements?

no, I just selfishly picked a place that fits the same description you just gave.

A great time was had by all, and I can't say enough about the wonderful folks at Monti's. I don't want to get caught in a "Pat's or Geno's" debate, since I'm not from there and thus unqualified, but the cheesesteaks were great. Thanks to everyone for coming out!
