On Monday night my 18-month-old daughter and I shared a serving of chicken tenders from the Grand Slam Grill behind section 318 on the Gallery level.
I am not usually a fan of the typical leathery, overly-breaded, tasteless ballpark chicken tender, but I needed to order something that my kid might actually eat. I was surprised to find these chicken tenders to be quite tasty. They were hot and crispy. They looked, smelled and tasted like chicken. And most importantly, my daughter ate them so quickly that it was tough for me to get a nibble. The experience was made even better by servers who were friendly and quick.
And when my little girl decided it was time to toss off her new pink Curly W ballcap unbeknownst to me, one of the employees working at the Grill came out from behind the counter, picked up the cap, caught up with us and gave it back. I was impressed and gratified!
Carol and I compared prices at the Verizon Center at a recent Wizards' game. It seems that most items are about .50 cents more expensive at Nationals Park.
The lines at the concessions were much more manageable tonight, especially as the game wore on. I did note that Gifford's Ice Cream still had a sizeable crowd waiting for treats at 9:45 p.m., even on a cold and windy night.
Nationals Journal already covered the early P.A. system problems. And yes, the scoreboard operator still does not seem to have a grip on the game. The Marlins lineup was listed at least once while the Nats were batting.
