What a great way to enjoy the A’s! The stadium is small and every seat is fantastic! Jim Harbaugh was the first base coach for the day, an interesting surprise. Did you hear, Will Ferrell was there later in the week doing fundraising? It was great seeing the players up close and there are some really promising rookies, hopefully the A’s will have a winning team this year. The A’s won the game in the end!
This was my first time having an Ike’s Place sandwich. I know, shame on me, since I’ve lived in Oakland for so long. But they have a shop in the Mesa, Arizona stadium and I was hungry. Wow! So good! I need to go to their shop here in Oakland. Here’s their menu!
We flew into Phoenix on Southwest and rented a small condo in Scottsdale. We had some recommendations for dining from my brother and sister-in-law. They sent us to the Mission on one night and to Citizen Public House another night. Amazing food! Mission is mexican style food prepared with a French style. Citizen Public House is more like upscale pub food, really upscale. Both are in Scottsdale, which has a lovely downtown area.
I’m so excited to go to more A’s games this season. Opening night! I’ll be there.
Will you be there, cheering for our Oakland Athletics?
