Bears Game Tailgating at Harry Caray's Tavern | Navy Pier

It’s time to Bear Down, Chicago! And time to take your party to the next level! Ditch the couch or that ordinary old standby watering hole and head over to Harry Caray’s Tavern at Navy Pier for an all-day tailgating party with a special football brunch and option to cruise to the game at Soldier Field!


The Tailgate

Starting with the Bears season home-opener on Sunday, September 9, Harry Caray’s Tavern will host a pre, during, and post-game tailgating party featuring much revelry and two special menus.

Available only on home game Sundays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Brunch menu is full of hearty breakfast items to help soak up some of that liquor you’re sure to consume later in the day (if you haven’t started already). How about Chilaquiles (tortilla chips, Monterey Jack cheese, scrambled eggs, avocado, cilantro, and salsa verde) or the classic Eggs Benedict (an English muffin, poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and hollandaise sauce with a side of breakfast potatoes)?

And if you’re ready to bring on the booze, the Bloody Mary bar, available on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. is sure to have something of what you’re craving. Start off with one tasty base like the House-Infused Jalapeño Tequila or Absolut Peppar Vodka, throw in some Zing Zang Bloody Mary mix, and add your choice of toppings! Pick from add-ins like bacon, smoked cheddar cheese, bleu cheese-stuffed olives, and a whole bunch of craft hot sauces.

Plus Harry Caray’s has two additional all-day, every Bears game day Tailgate Specials: an Appetizer Platter that could feed a village (buffalo wings, Harry’s Calamari, chicken tenders, mini corn dogs, AND spinach artichoke) and a 14” Oven Fired Pizza (Loaded Baked Potato, Margherita, BBQ Chicken, or Double Play with double the amount of mozzarella, pepperoni, and Italian sausage).


The Game

And of course we can’t forget the guest of honor, the actual game! Watch the Bears take on one of their NFC rivals from the comfort of Harry Caray’s Tavern with its selection of 30 HDTV’s and surround sound or, if you’re one of those lucky ticketholders, leave the car in a Navy Pier lot and hit the open water for a cruise to Soldier Field!

Shoreline Sightseeing is offering discounted Water Taxi rides from Harry Caray’s to the Museum Campus area on home game days. Enjoy views of the skyline over a supplied beverage (Budweiser, Pepsi product, juice, or bottled water) during the 15-minute cruise and then disembark for the short walk to Soldier Field. Water Taxis will be by later to pick up fans after the game for what we can only hope will be post-game tailgating celebrations at Harry Caray’s!

      Hi Jeanne! Here’s a link to the special brunch menu: You’ll notice some deals are only good on home games (the first set) and the others run every time the Bears play. This special menu is for everyone, regardless of whether you’ve got tickets to the game or not. And of course Harry Caray’s will have their regular menu too! Thanks for the question!

      Hi Erica! If you’re referring to the special game day menu prices at Harry Caray’s, then yes, definitely!
