San Francisco Giants, National League Champions!

October 24, 2012

The San Francisco Giants have beat the odds and have made it into the World Series!   They’ve had a crazy journey so far in the post season and I can’t wait to see how they do tonight in Game 1 of the WS!!

Even though AT&T Park lets you bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks to the park, we usually end up buying food there.  I may be biased but the food is pretty spectacular at the park!  We discovered Club Level and ever since then, TM doesn’t like to sit anywhere else.  They also have food there that isn’t sold in other parts of the stadium.

One thing we always get is an order of Gilroy Garlic Fries.  You can smell them almost everywhere in the park and they are a fan favorite.  My most recent favorite thing to eat at the ballpark is the Crazy Crab sandwich.  It will cost you a pretty penny at $16, but it was well worth it in my opinion.  The sourdough bread was nicely buttered and grilled and the crab sandwich had beautiful sliced tomatoes on it.

We’ve gotten the caramel apple fries a couple of times.  I think it’s a cut-to-order Granny Smith apple sliced into “fries” covered with warm caramel sauce and crushed peanuts for $5.

Almost any seat at AT&T Park gives you a great view.  I love looking at the San Francisco Bay in the background in between innings.   It is one of my favorite places to be on a Sunday afternoon! (or any day for that matter!)

Did I mention we’re going to Game 2 tomorrow?  So exciting!  GOOOOO GIANTS!

Snack at Safeco Field

June 3, 2011

After dinner at Pike Place Chowder, we headed over to Safeco Field to catch a baseball game.  The Mariners were hosting the NY Yankees for the weekend and it ended up being an exciting game!  Besides the game going into extra innings and the home team winning in the bottom of the 12th inning, 5-4, there were four separate people who rushed the field to get arrested, one of them being completely nekkid.  That served for quite a bit of entertainment, especially when the towel the policemen brought out to cover him, fell off.

It was chilly at the park with pretty gusty winds so by the time we ate this, it was cold.  I was pretty surprised TM didn’t grab a hot dog since we were at a baseball game but he said the spicy chicken was calling his name.  The chicken had a nice kick to it and I ate a handful of fries because I can never seem to turn down french fries.  Sadly enough, it was too cold for me to even consider drinking a beer.  I opted for hot chocolate to keep me warm during the game.

Safeco was a nice, clean park with great views.  The sun didn’t set until after 9 PM and we got some great shots of the buildings in the background as the sun was setting later in the evening.
