Breaking News – The Chicago Cub fan cemetery opens today April 22, 2009 The cemetery will feature a replica of the Chicago Cub hand operated Scoreboard in Stain Glass.
The Chicago Cub Cemetery features a replica of the Wrigley Field Center Field Wall. The cost of being laid to rest there is $1,295.oo. The REQUIREMENT TO REST IN PEACE is to be a BURNED Cub Fan.
I am not talking about being burned because the Cubs have not won a WORLD SERIES in a 100 years.
In order to store your Ashes in an “ETERNAL SKYBOX” you will have to undergo a cremation. That will be on top of the cost of resting in peace at “Beyond the Vines.” You will have to accept the fact that your body will be burned.
It really is not all that bad because with a little shopping around for cremation you can come in under the average cost of a funeral which I have declared to be $8,500.00+ in 2009.

But there is only 288 spaces available here hardly enough for the “die hard” Cub Fans in Chicago.
The latest word is that the business owner now has his eye on Yankee Stadium. From the Bugs and Cranks Blog
“The goal was to try and take away some of the gloominess and depression from a cemetery visit,” Beyond the Vines founder Dennis Mascari said in an interview. I’m not quite sure if he went about it the right way……Mascari unsurprisingly said he’s considering a Yankees-themed cemetery.”
Hope springs eternal for the Chicago Cubs.
