If you are going to stop at Sciortino’s, there is a really good Italian store/deli across the street – Glorioso’s. They have excellent deli meats, cheeses and salads which all would make great tailgate food or just lunch & snacking.
As for tickets you can always get them – it’s just how much you are willing to pay. If you go on JSONLINE.COM you can go to the local ads and see what’s out there. Worst case – go to Miller Park, tailgate and listen to the game on the radio – nothing better than listening to Bob Ueker announce a Brewer game to make it feel like summer!!!
