Worth the Price?
In Nationals Journal yesterday (4/1), commenter SA_Town asked if the $20 food voucher that comes with the Red Porch club level is worth it.
In my whole, ahem, two days of experience I would say the food may not be worth it (yet) but the views and the comfortable seats might be.
As I understand it, the Red Porch section is divided in two; the lower level seats closest to the field are Centerfield Club and don't come with the voucher. The upper level seats (Centerfield Lounge) are more expensive and come with a $20 food voucher from Red Porch restaurant.
Is the food voucher worth the extra $20 you pay for the ticket?
Maybe they're still tweaking the Red Porch menu, but last Saturday it really wasn't. My friend Diego paid $11 for a hamburger that looked pretty good, but it was, you know, a hamburger. The rest of the menu included hot dogs, frenchfries and caesar salad. There may have been more but it must not have been that great if I can't remember. My point: I think you can get much better food in the concourses for $20 bucks.
On the other hand, the seats are nice. The ushers let me and my brother sit there for a spell while we ate a Half Smoke and watched batting practice (we had to promise to leave soon and clean up after ourselves). The seats are cushioned and have a great little pouch under the seat for your gear, seat backs are high, tables are on either side of you, there's tons of leg room, elbow room and breathing room. And the view of the field is spectacular. I'd almost say the seats themselves are more worth the extra price than the food voucher itself. For now anyway.
I haven't tried the Red Loft bar yet, but it looks awesome. Here's what Michael had to say about it.
