Top 5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Week
Katie Warren/Arizona Diamondbacks
With something to do Monday through Friday, here are your plans in and around Phoenix this week.
Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs @ Chase Field
If it seems like an eternity since the Arizona Diamondbacks hoisted the coveted commissioners trophy in 2001, imagine being a Chicago Cubs fan. The Windy City's most storied sports franchise has had nothing but unhappy endings for more than a century. In fact, the last time the Cubbies won the whole shebang there were all of 16 teams in the big leagues, and Teddy Roosevelt was in the Oval Office. Yet despite being perennial losers, the Cubs are one of the most beloved franchises in all of sports and their fans are fiercely loyal.
New Times Calendar of Events
So when the Cubs roll into to town to take on an overachieving Diamondbacks club, it will come as no surprise to see the seats of Chase Field, 401 East Jefferson Street, littered with blue and red. It will also come as no surprise if the Cubs lose. Today's game starts at 6:40 p.m. Tickets are $12 and up via www.ticketmaster.com or 602-462-6500. -- Rob Kroehler
