Levy Restaurants Cashes In On Winter Classic

While the weather when the puck drops Thursday at Wrigley field will be nowhere near the extremes of the Bears' last three home games, it'll still be cold. While we know some of you attending the game will be sneaking flasks, beer and soda will also be served in plastic bottles only. Hot chocolate will be served in a commemorative Winter Classic cup, as well.

Levy Restaurants, which handles concessions for Wrigley Field, will also add a Detroit-style Coney Dog to their menu, which might sell very well given the conditions outside. Additionally, Levy will be keeping a running tally of the numbers of Coney Dogs and Chicago-style dogs they sell, to see which city's hot dog is more popular during the game. Other menu additions they'll be offering for fans trying to keep warm are breakfast burritos, chili and hot sandwiches.
