An article in the Chicago Tribune talks about the discussion of allowing rooftops to be open for the Buffett shows at Wrigley Field on Labor Day Weekend.

A Chicago City Council committee today recommended that rooftop venues surrounding Wrigley Field be allowed to open for the two Jimmy Buffett concerts this Labor Day holiday weekend.

Under current ordinances, the rooftops can operate only during Chicago Cubs games.

In exchange for the support of Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) for the proposed exception, rooftop owners agreed to contribute $25,000 of their proceeds from the Buffett concerts to the construction of a playlot in the Wrigleyville neighborhood.
