    Shea can be a problem because there's nothing around the stadium so you either have to tailgate or buy beer inside. I for one enjoy beer at the ballpark, but having full season tix and paying $8 for (good) beers, I'd go bankrupt by the All Star break if I didn't keep it to 2 or so a game.

    Most of the heavy beer drinkers seem to be the younger guys (girls too) that don't go that often, but drinking is part of their typical social environment (college etc) so it naturally carries over to the ballpark, for better or for worse. What I don't get is most of them are conditioned by TV or whatever into buying Bud or Bud Lights and need about 6 or 8 to get their buzz, instead of buying maybe 3 Heinekens or Becks, which would achieve the same effect, with less cost and infinitely more enjoyment!

    Sometimes it's interesting to watch the "drinkers" around us get increasingly louder and a little more confrontational as the game goes on, usually culminating in the "fight" inning - otherwise known as the 7th. Beer sales are stopped after the top of the 7th, so that's the "peak" of beer consumption, and usually is good for a slight scuffle or two, sometimes worse depending on the opponent. That's probably why I'm a big extra-inning fan - no more beer sales, the partiers go back to the parking lot for brewskis and only the die-hards are left, to simply watch the game.

      It was no typo. What they do is they slightly or fully cook (I'm not sure) a brat, which is much larger than what you get at the game. Then they encase it in pretzel dough and bake that. They also do the same thing with hot dogs. They are to die for and since the brat or dog are wrapped in the baked pretzel dough, they stay warmer longer.

      One thing though, if you are ever in St. Louis and go to a game, DON'T BUY THE ONES THEY SERVE AT THE BALLGAME. A couple of years ago the Cardinals came across Gus' invention and were in talks to sell tham at Busch. Instead they said no thanks and then took the idea and tried to make it their own. But at the stadium they are much smaller, aren't completely wrapped in the dough and are twice as expensive. So if you are ever in STL and want one to take to the game, or just want one, go to Gus'. It's right across highway 55 from the brewery on Arsenal.

      P.S.- Hungry now?

        Yes!!!! They always do stuff like that at ballparks, concerts ect. They always seem to have the horrible ripoff version of good food that is always overpriced. God, I must have one! I don't see myself anywhere near St.Louis anytime soon though. That sounds wicked good, like a giant really good pig in a blanket!

          Since most venues are constructed with public financing, how about attaching a requirement to the financing package that competition be permitted among various concessionaires within the venue?

            I bring water, samwitches, all kinds of stuff to shea. They don't expect everyone to buy an 8 dollar hotdog etc.

                I'm not sure. Take a look at their website.
