Pitchers and cathers report today! This means Opening Day is just a few weeks away and since I’m the party planner for our crew, I have some tips.
Rent a Portable Bathroom. This is probably the biggest success stories over the years. No more waiting in line for the one and only place to pee in Section E of the parking lot. The ladies love it! We had 4 parking spots one year and just put the thing in the middle. It worked out awesome! Just beware of the potty vultures. It’s also easiest if you call the Ballpark to get their approved contractor. They usually deliver and pick up, you don’t want to handle that s***.
Get there early. Parking is a beast and having a large group every year like we do is always tough to get enough parking for all of us. Encourage car pooling amongst your friends. It’s more fun to drive out there with friends telling stories of old. You’ll probably owe the poor driver a drink or two once you get back home, but it’s worth it!
Grilling is hard. We tried this once. It didn’t work. I would give you the recipe for bacon wrapped jalapeno cheese dogs, but you can just buy them in the stadium these days. Bring breakfast tacos or something along those lines. You won’t believe how fast time flies
Don’t wear jeans. If it’s a sunny day, no matter the temperature don’t wear jeans. Breathable pants are good, or sometimes even shorts. Jeans just don’t work for a day game.
Bring Friends – a lot of them. No need to go into details about that.
