This particular location offers neither of the latter two. Getting there for weekday night games would be a nightmare as rush hour is awful on both the tollway and the Kennedy, let alone if there is any other event in Rosemont near there. And there is no room there to have enough parking.

Also, they still would be out all of the tourists who currently flock to Wrigley Field because it is Wrigley Field. I would venture a guess that the number of tourists to Wrigley Field could be as much as a million fans per season; as well as the number of young city dwellers who live near the park and like to party and socialize there.
