Mayor Rahm Emanuel is betting a bushel of local brews, some Robinson’s No. 1 ibs, an Eli’s cheesecake and more in a friendly wager with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee on the outcome of the Cubs’ National League Division Series with the Giants.
“I’ll also throw in a container of Chicago-made hair butter to help Mayor Lee grow his trademark mustache into a Jake Arrieta-like beard,” Emanuel announced Friday.
Lee, in turn, has wagered bottles of Bay Area whiskeys and a contribution to the Becoming a Man program in Chicago.
“The Cubs are the best team in baseball, and I fully expect Chicago to Fly the W,” Emanuel said. They pushed the odds in Emanuel’s favor by grinding out a 1-0 victory in the series opener.
