World Series 2018: Watch at one of Chicago's top sports bars

CHICAGO -- If you wanted to be taken out to the ball game but couldn't score tickets to this year's World Series, all is not lost. Chicago has plenty of top-notch sports bars where you can watch the Los Angeles Dodgers square off against the Boston Red Sox. From the South Loop to Lakeview, these bars offer more than the typical stadium hot dog, nachos and overpriced beer.
