Dallas Observer Mention

I got an unexpected surprise Tuesday morning when I learned that a photo I’d taken last year at Nationals Park had just been featured on the Dallas Observer’s food blog, City of Ate. It appeared in an article called, “All-Star Ballpark Food From Around the Country.”

Given that I wrote a post about the 10 best things I’ve eaten on my travels for The Ballpark Guide a few months ago, it was curious that the author picked something that wasn’t on the list — I described the pastrami sandwich at the time as not being very good, although I’ll admit that it does look tasty.

Here’s a screenshot of the blog and article header:

And here’s the section of the article about my experience:

(It’s the first time I’ve been called a kid in a while.) Still, it was exciting to see my photo on the blog and it makes me glad I always document what I eat at ballparks.

One week today, I’ll be in Rochester to watch a game at Frontier Field since the first time since 2010, and I’m really excited for that.

In other news, I’ve recently added comprehensive guides to Trenton’s Mercer County Waterfront Park to and Lehigh Valley’s Coca-Cola Park to my website. Please check out the website and, as always, I appreciate your support.

    Wes: Thanks for reading. Glad you’re enjoying the blog. Fifty-five baseballs is great! Do you mostly go to Flying Squirrels games? I don’t plan on being there this year, although I really hope to make it next spring. Please keep in touch and hopefully we can meet up.
