The Non-Beer Options – By Quernzy
Quernzy is the lovely partner/wife/drinking buddy to our very own Chorizy-E. She likes a good time, even though she married a guy who looks like her grandpa (if her grandpa was mexican and had grey hair). She also is majorly famous having appeared in many movies and TV shows. Check her out on IMDB. Huge sports fan, it runs in her blood, as her mom’s favorite movie of all time is Rocky (and she was a season ticket holder for the O’s and Ravens).
If you’re still watching the White Sox, you’re probably drinking way more alcohol. And sometimes a beer may not be strong enough when the other team is about to score their 10th run. So I did you a favor and tested out all the non-beer options on the concourse level of US Cellular Field.
Many of you will probably start off a game by heading to the “Frozen Zone” near the bleachers and pick up a Frozen Mango Daiquiri in an obnoxious souvenir cup that you’ll never use again. But after a few sips, you will regret that decision. They are way too sweet and you will have a headache to prove it. Not to mention, a ridiculous cup that looks like you just left a horrible bachelorette party.
Opt instead for a Frozen Margarita from the vendors in the aisles. Delicious! And just the right amount to finish before it melts. Some have Frozen Vodka Lemonade, equally good. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of these vendors, so keep an eye out for them.
One of my favorite non-frozen cocktails at the park is a Vodka Lemonade near Section 106 at the “K”orner Beer Stand. While you are over there, check out the Xfinity Bar near Section 108. They have a specialty cocktail menu and The ChiSox Mule is worth the long lines at the bar. If the park is packed, be prepared to wait for half an inning (aka an entire James Shields start).
And for something a little different – try the coffee with a shot of Baileys and get a souvenir mug at the “Winning Ugly is Sweet” Stand at Section 143. Now that it’s summer, this might not be the best choice, but don’t worry, the stadium will be cold and empty in just a few short months.
Overall, there are plenty of non-beer options on the first level and given the Sox recent play, you’re gonna need them.
