The Cubs got the go-ahead Wednesday to schedule 35 night games per season at Wrigley Field — and add eight more, including three Saturday nights, to accommodate national television — in exchange for added security and free remote parking. The City Council’s License Committee satisfied the Cubs’ demand for “corrections” to the night game ordinance approved last summer. But aldermen put off a vote that would allow the team to sell beer and wine from kiosks at an open-air plaza adjacent to a renovated Wrigley. The prospect of Saturday night games drew mixed reviews fom Wrigleyville residents.
