Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Christopher is on the activities committee at his workplace. Well, technically he’s the director of the committee… or the “Supreme Commander,ย Grand Poobah of the Activities Committee” as he likes to refer to himself. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, the activities committee decided to take the new CEO out to a Redbirds game and I got to come along!

autozone parkJust inside the entrance you’ll see the pitcher/catcher duo while hearing vendors calling out “It’s hot out here! Get your ice cold drinks!”

rendezvousI decided to go with Rendezvous for dinner! Last time I was at the actual Rendezvous (just a block away from Autozone Park), I was disappointed with the touristy feel (long wait, high prices, okay food). However, this my friends, is the way to do Rendezvous. Short wait, delicious bbq nachos, and comparable prices to everything else at the ball park (about $10 for a meal).

rendezvousDear Rendezvous, I’m sorry for every unkind word I’ve said against you. You really do have delicious BBQ nachos. With barbecue sauce that is sweet and just a little spicy, you have me craving them again already! Maybe I’ll give your restaurant another chance sometime when it’s not a busy weekend night so I don’t have to wait an hour and a half to walk in the door.

redbirds stadiumWe had front row seats! Christopher and I are notorious for propping our feet up on things so it was nice that we were able to prop our feet up on the concrete wall instead of hoping no one would be sitting in the seats in front of us. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don’t care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win, it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game!

Love Rach
