Wrigley_Field_2013The Cubs would be allowed to sell beer and wine from kiosks at an open-air plaza adjacent to a renovated Wrigley Field — and fans would be allowed to bring drinks in plastic cups to the plaza — in the latest in a string of concessions to the team.

Local Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) on Tuesday introduced the ordinance to a City Council that’s preparing to give the Cubs the go-ahead to take another 10 feet of street and sidewalk and sell advertising on a “branding arch” over Clark Street.
