Interesting event, so Bacardi at the Park is now ChiSox Bar & Grill? I had not heard that anywhere else.

I can confirm this is true - at least until a new corporate sponsor comes around.

I remember ChiSox Bar & Grill being discussed before Bacardi came on board. Maybe Uncle Jerry has a softspot (or hard on) for that name.

My hope is their lack of creativity is due to another sponsor deal kicking in before the season starts.

Otherwise, it's just terrible

It was originally announced as Comiskey's, IIRC.

How about McCuddy's?....Oh, wait...

I kind of like "Alexei's How Many Outs Are There? Bar and Grill."

What was the deal with the contest to name the Chicago Sports Depot? It appears nobody won.

I really hope Sox management brings BlackJack back in the fold. He could help this organization in many different ways.

He is now with the Dodgers as manager of the Ogden Raptors in the Pioneer League.

I think the first year it was called TBD's. That Bicardi's deal was a short one.

Hope it means they get rid of the DJ and blasting music.
