Chicago White Sox opening day is Friday, April 8! Chicago’s Southside baseball fans can kick off the season at their favorite eatery with a hot dog and beer special. The home opener starts at 3:10 p.m. and Fabulous Freddies Italian Eatery is offering $3.10 beer and Bridgeport Dog combo for all home games that start at 3:10 p.m.
The iconic Bridgeport Dog is the neighborhood’s take on the classic Chicago hot dog: it’s served on a classic bun (no poppy seeds), and replaces celery salt and sport peppers with cucumbers. Some residents trace the origin of the Bridgeport Dog to the Freddies proprietors’ “Uncle Joey” of Joey’s Hot Dogs fame.
“The Bridgeport Dog is what Bridgeport residents have come to love,” say the Bertucci sisters, second-generation owners of the Eatery. “We’re excited to offer our favorite dog and brew special for $3.10 to celebrate the baseball season.”
In addition to the brew and dog special, if the home team wins, fans can celebrate with a free cup of Freddies’ famous creamy Italian ice after the game. Customers can also upgrade to an Infused Ice with their favorite alcoholic spirit for $4.
