UPDATE 12/20/17: Harry Caray’s is closed until February 2018 so NO Bears Tailgate Parties at Navy Pier. I just called over to Navy Pier about something else and found out Harry Caray’s is closed due to the ongoing construction at Navy Pier.
This post was scheduled long in advance to re-post based on the Tailgate party schedule provided to me by Harry Caray’s at the beginning of the football season. No one bothered to let us know they were closing/closed!
Bears Tailgate Parties at Navy Pier. Harry Caray’s Tavern will be hosting Bears Tailgate Parties at Navy Pier during every Home Game. Spend $30 (plus tax and tip) and get discount parking at Navy Pier and free round trip transportation to Soldier Field. Where: Harry Caray’s Tavern, Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand. Tailgate Party Mon. 4:30pm-7:30PM, Sat. and Sun. 9AM-12PM.
When: Schedule here. This can be a really great deal depending on how many people are in your group. Here’s the deal: When your party spends $30 (plus tax and tip) at Harry Caray’s Tavern Navy Pier you receive: round trip transportation to Soldiers Field via either Shoreline Water taxi (weather permitting) or by bus. Maximum four transportation tickets per party. Round trip transportation is only available for the first 175 people. Discount self-parking for $15 at Navy Pier. Maximum one parking voucher per party. 50 vouchers are available per home game. Full price parking at Navy Pier is $28.
Purchase Shoreline tickets separately if you decide not to dine at Harry’s you can purchase water taxi tickets separately here. The water taxi drops you off by the Shedd Aquarium so you’ll have to walk some distance down Solidarity Drive to Soldier Field. Beginning in November free, round trip bus service for the first 175 guests provided by Miller Lite from Windy City Limo will be available on a first come first served basis for home games. The bus drops off/picks up at the south side of the stadium near 18th Street. The Tailgate Party menu is here. This is a great deal. Spend $55 ($30 plus tax and tip at Harry’s and $15 to park) and up to four people get free round trip transport to Soldier Field.
This deal may be worth it just to avoid having to navigate the traffic around Soldier Field. Go Bears!
Here’s the fine print: Vouchers and tickets valid only on day of purchase. Maximum one parking voucher and four transportation tickets per party; available on first come, first served basis while supplies last. Parking offer valid for self-parked cars in Navy Pier garages at 600 E. Grand on Chicago Bears home game days for cars parked up to 3 hours prior to game time until up to 3 hours post game time. 50 vouchers are available per home game. Windy City Limo and Shoreline cruise offer valid on Chicago Bears home game days. 175 tickets are available per home game. Additional Shoreline Water Taxi tickets will be available for purchase at their ticket booth on game day.
