Nightlife: Cardinals vs. Cubs

The Cardinals play the Cubs. On the Fourth of July. They are playing for first place. Jim Edmonds is there, but (gasp!) he is now a Cub. There is a lot of Busch beer drinking, mostly poured from 24-ounce cans. God Bless America. Roving photographer Jason Winkeler was in the bars, outside the stadium, on top of a parking garage across the street taking it in. Look for the embrace between a Cardinals fan and Cubs fan.

From atop a parking garage across Broadway, fans without tickets took in an grand view. But trust us, it's not a place to watch if you want to argue balls and strikes.
