Windy City to host “Wii Wars” all summer

The Windy City forecast calls for an even windier summer this year, as Chicago locals will be swinging Wii Remotes all summer long.

Harry Caray’s Tavern in Chicago is hosting free “Wii Wars” every Tuesday through Aug. 26.

Wii Wars brings locals and Chicago sports icons together for a weekly night of Wii games and challenges. Participants compete for different prizes and play different games each week on a 123″ HD TV.

The event debuted June 17 with a Wii Sports home run derby against legendary Cubs slugger Ernie Banks. Other stars scheduled for Wii Wars include Pro Bowl defenseman Brian Urlacher, three-time NBA champion Dickie Simpkins and Cubs hall of famer Ryne Sandberg.

Wii Wars begin each Tuesday at 8:00 PM and end at 1:00 AM. For more information, check the Harry Caray’s Tavern Web site.

Cubs win! Cubs win!
