Next Wednesday provides a rare opportunity for Fire fans to catch a weekday afternoon game. The Chicago Fire are traveling to New Jersey to take on the New York Red Bulls. A couple of Hot Time In Old Town writers will be taking in the game at Mother Hubbard's which is located at 5 W. Hubbard in Chicago (intersection of Hubbard & State). Kick-off is at 12:00 PM but there will be people there a little earlier. We'll be staying through the entire game. This should be a nice chance to put faces to the user names on the site (both for you and for us). Even if you just lurk, that's great too.
Bring along friends, co-workers, and if you dare, your boss. This also is a nice opportunity to show off Chicago Fire Soccer Club culture to people who might not normally check it out. Plus, it's always nice to have a good excuse to get out of the office during the Chicago summer. We hope to see you there and here are the full details.
