Baseball and Beer in Bowie--again!

This just in from the Bowie Baysox. I went to one of their beer dinners a while back, and it was a grand time. I'm beginning to understand my Pennsylvania friends who permanently swore off major-league baseball after the last baseball players' strike, and shifted their summertime baseball-park touring to minor league teams. They claim the baseball is MUCH better and more exciting, and the stadiums (stadia?) more interesting and a far better bargain than ANY major league park. (The last time I went to an Orioles game at Camden Yards was back when you could have held a chicken fight in left field and sold out the stadium--and our behind-home-plate seats cost $13 each!)

The last time I was at a Bowie beer dinner, the food was plentiful and excellent (not gourmet, perhaps, but a step or two above normal stereotypes of stadium food), the beer was flowing, and the game was also fun and interesting. You can really go for the game and get the dinner as a bonus, or go for the dinner and the game is a bonus.

Spaten Brewery's "Beers of Munich" Dinner on Thursday, June 18th beginning

all for $41 per person. For menu and other information, or to order your
