Postseason's Greetings

Your Playoff Playgrounds

After a century of waiting, you know about the long view. So tonight, you're dusting yourself off, getting back in the game and hustling to take advantage of these playoff spoils.

The Chicago Dog Pizza at Ian's
DUAL ALLEGIENCE

The Chicago Dog Pizza at Ian's

The people who brought you Mac ‘n' Cheese Pizza swing for the fences with the unveiling of this classic Chicago hybrid during the Cubs playoffs: A pie covered with sport peppers, diced tomatoes, celery salt, onions, Vienna Beef hot dogs, relish and yellow mustard. Ketchup, however, is still a nonstarter.

VICTORY CUPCAKES

Free Victory Cupcakes at More

When the Cubs and Sox win, it's because you cheered them on. So post-victory days, the Gold Coast cupcakery rewards your hard work with their signature marshmallow and chocolate ganache cupcake when you buy six while decked out in Sox or Cubs garb.

Pizza and Beer Deal at La Madia
DOUBLE PLAY

Pizza and Beer Deal at La Madia

You're no stranger to buying a few rounds for a friend. That includes rounds of pizza. So the deal during playoff games at River North's thin-pie authority should be appealing: Twenty dollars buys two beers, the pie of your choice and a grateful slap on the back.

La Madia, 59 W. Grand Ave (between Clark and Dearborn), 312- 329-0400

The Skybox at Tavern at the Park
SKYBOX SEATING

The Skybox at Tavern at the Park

With the teams in LA and Tampa, your usual skybox seats will get lonely. Instead, reserve one of the private, LCD-equipped rooms overlooking Millennium Park for your entourage. There's no minimum tab, so go easy on those mini prime rib sandwiches.

Party at Citizen
BRAT PACK

Party at Citizen

If your late-season baseball experience isn't complete without endless brats, grilled burgers, bowls of chili and free-flowing drafts, the $30 party package available during all Cubs and Sox playoff games at Citizen should help you achieve a sense of closure.

Citizen Bar, 364 W. Erie St (between Sedgwick and Orleans), 312-640-1156
