Going to my 1st……


Recommended Posts

So I figured this would be a good topic to help out the newbies who are going to there 1st game at a place where others have been and can maybe give tips and info on it to make the experience as amazing as can be. So here goes…

 

Going to my 1st:

St Louis cards game (September 14th)

Kansas State game (September 17th)

Brewers game (September 19th)

 

Hope to get some good tips. I know there’s a bunch of STL fans here & MKE as well.

I'm going to my first Cubs game on August 20th. Going with a friend who just moved to Chicago but has been there dozens of times. Would love some pointers on some fun pre-game and in-game stuff.

The Budweiser Terrace in right field at Busch has the best food at the ballpark. Can’t remember the name of the stand but it has a grill with shrimp skewers and sausage. It’s good food and great bang for your buck for ballpark food.

 

Parking: there are some cheap parking lots about a block south of the home plate entrance, used to be $10 I think? You’ve gotta get there early because they fill up fast.


I haven’t had a chance to see the latest additions/updates to Ballpark Village, but if you’ve got time to kill or are in town for a few days it’s a fun place to watch the game if you don’t have tickets.

Well I’m staying across the river in ESTL so the stadium is a ten min drive if that so I’m not gonna even bother to buy parking I can Uber there before the game and check out the village.  Also looking at this place on the village called “salt & smoke” seems like the winner for dinning.

In August, I'll be going to my first Pirates, Guardians and Akron Rubberducks games. I'm familiar with Pittsburgh, but none of the stadiums or cities in Ohio.

Going to my first Albuquerque Isotopes game Friday night.

 

And it's beach towel night.

 

Any tips?

Better Call Saul...

 

Haven't been to an Isotopes game but have been to Albuquerque.  If you like dive type restaurants check out Frontier over on Central across from UNM.  Food's decent, and friendly on the wallet.  There are also a number of good places to eat on the surrounding blocks south of Central.  Christmas style is a thing too.  Great for the indecisive like me.  Trip up to Santa Fe is well worth it too.
