I finally made it to Camden Yards last night. The place has changed. OUTSIDE PITCH magazine died...They don't have a "scalp-free ticket zone" anymore...and, in the most shocking development of all...
THEY GOT RID OF THE RIBS!!!! (They were good ribs.)
They do have beer, though. Here's what's in the craft beer stands:
Flying Dog Snake Dog
Heavy Seas Classic Lager
I assume the Heavy Seas Classic Lager is what used to be called Clipper City Gold. I of course gave Hugh Sisson my custom. This is a pretty good beer to have with the nourishing peanut.
They jacked up the prices by a buck to $7.50. I hope the brewers got some.
Diageo has also entered the park in a big way. They now have Bacardi stands selling you dacquiris and margaritas for $8. And they also have "Jeremiah Weed tea-flavored vodka" with lemonade. Although this beverage violates one of the Fundamental Laws of Drinking, namely, "Don't Drink ANYTHING with 'Weed" in the title" (The sentence, "Dag, thass good weed" should NOT be used with alcoholic beverages!) this drink sounds so disgusting that I must have at least one.
