Best Ballpark of the Year, 2009
I’m ashamed to admit it but I have yet to be to a Red’s game this summer. Disgusting right? Disgraceful!? I’m sorry! It’s hard to get down there and fit time in for a game (or to even meet a blogger friend but that’s beside the point).
Last week I did the closest thing to getting to a Red’s game… I went to the #1 rated Best Ballpark in the U.S.: Huntington Park, home of the Columbus Clippers (Cleveland’s AAA team). We’ve been to the stadium a couple times but this time we check out left field where the ticket office is and the Rooster’s restaurant deck. There is a set of bleachers up there to give you the Chicago-feel of watching a game up high.
We then checked out the bar on the second floor, just below the Roosters deck. The food was decent! My bf had a burger (I was so full from lunch I just nibbled on what he had). The best part is that they have vodka and they have roses sweetened lime juice so I had a refreshing gimlet!
One thing I didn’t get about the stadium is why this one food stand had the Bob Evans logo above it but when you read the menu you’ll notice nothing on the menu was labeled as being from Bob Evans. Weird!
You can get City Barbeque there which is nice as well as micro-brew from The Elevator… The best part about tonight’s game (which was in the 7th when we left) is of course the view of the city. It made for some pretty pictures!
