My Choice for Top Fry

I wouldn't normally associate French fries with baseball, or at least enough to give them too much thought seeing as how the staple food of much critique (and sometimes lament) would obviously be the hot dog. But with so many options at Nats Park, I decided to give them all...

A Call to the Beer Pen

Friday evening I enjoyed a lovely happy hour on 8th Street (a delightful corridor for pre-game mingles) before enjoying the 15-minute stroll to the Stade. I will take a slight tangent here and say that I really did enjoy that stroll. It's not redeveloped to the nines yet and you...

My First Time

So Wednesday night was my first time at Nationals Park, Home of Your Washington Nationals,! I mean, wow! Everything from the logistical ease (literally a one-minute walk from the Navy Yard Metro) to the resulting giddy excitement (yelping and clapping every five minutes when I realized I was actually...

A Curly W Metro Pass

Even though I had a perfectly-functioning SmarTrip card, I just HAD to show my Nats pride when going through turnstiles, so I up and purchased one of the two special Nationals SmarTrip Cards offered by WMATA (in my opinion, little more than a cute and "aw-shucks" way for Metro to...
