Chicago ballpark double header

My friend and I will be heading to Chicago the weekend of June 7-9 to see a White Sox game (Friday night) and a Cubs game (Saturday afternoon) (huge baseball fans - on a side note, we are trying to visit all 30 MLB ballparks) :).

That being said - any suggestions for places around Cellular One field (White Sox, I believe?) for before Friday's game (our flight lands around noon on Friday) - and also any suggestions for before the 3:00-ish game @ Wrigley, and after for dinner, would be greatly appreciated.

We are staying at the Hyatt Regency McCormick - so it's only a few miles from the White Sox ballpark.

Looking at earlier postings, I am thinking this so far:

1. (Before White clue...please help...:) )
2. Brunch before Wrigley - maybe Jam or Bongo Room? How busy do these places get - should my friend and I try to get there when they open, or if not, do the lines move fast?
3. After Wrigley - not sure. I have been to Chicago so I know at some point my friend and I will be getting Garrett's popcorn (love). I am trying to keep this sort of on a budget, so nothing like Alinea (sp?) price tag, so to speak. Default for me would be pizza, but I have had that many times.

Thank you in advance. So excited to be heading to Chicago - these two will be ballparks #7 and #8. Fun fun fun :)
