Now that fans know the parade route, it's time to plot out where to celebrate the Cubs World Series win. The parade begins at 10 a.m. at Wrigley Field, heads west on Addison, then south on Lake Shore Drive and down Michigan Avenue toward the rally site at Grant Park. While fans waited quite a while for a championship, there's no need to celebrate on an empty stomach. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime memory, after all.

The following map highlights some of the better food and coffee around the parade route. Whether it's waiting for the motorcade or pre- or postgaming after the rally, use this list to win the World Series of fandom. If fans don't want to chase the players along the parade route, keep in mind that many bars will televise the parade on TV. From green apples, to goat, to Old Style, have something to eat or drink to ensure you'll never forget this historic Chicago sports moment. Listed in alphabetical order.
