ABC 7'S host Janet Davies, along with 190 North Correspondents Doug Banks, Michelle Alegria and Pogo, celebrate Chicago Cub fans with a special program that showcases the wonderful world of Wrigleyville, Sunday, October 5 at 10:35 pm. According to Davies, "This is a show for the ultimate Cub fan who wants to know more about the beautiful confines of Wrigleyville and all the treasures it has to offer."

During the half-hour, 190 North recaps the wonderful history of Wrigleyville and goes back in time to 1893 for a look at West Side Grounds, the ball park that preceded Chicago's beloved Wrigley Field.

190 North visits the Bohemian National Cemetery, the quintessential spot for "DIE- hard" Cubs fans whose final resting place can be right next to a replica of Wrigley Field, complete with an ivy wall and a heavenly scoreboard that always shows the Cubs winning.

Another stop on 190's Wrigleyville tour features unique shopping experiences at places like "Strange Cargo," where shoppers can go retro to make their own customized tees from over 3, 000 vintage iron-ons; Uncle Dan's Outdoor Store, and Harry Caray's favorite place for a snack, "Nuts on Clark."

In addition, 190 North takes fans to some of the fun places to eat and drink in the neighborhood including a Reggae bar, the first Japanese-American Bar in the country and the bar that was named one of the "20 Best 'dive' bars in the U.S."
