A week of fun and sun was just what we needed to break up the days of rain and cold here in Seattle. One of our first stops on our sunny adventure was Scottsdale, AZ to see the Mariners take on the San Francisco Giants at the Giants’ “home field”. We made a day of it; first checking out downtown Scottsdale, finding a spot for lunch, and finally heading to the game.
We didn’t have a lot of time to explore, but we took in some noteworthy sights.
I highly recommend breakfast, lunch, brunch, etc… at Distrito. I had the Torta de Huevos. Excellent.
Now on to the main event: the baseball game. I have to shift my focus when attending sporting events with Bergen. The overall experience is still a whole lot of fun, but there is a lot more focus on exploring the venue rather than actually paying attention to the game. We spent very little time in our seats, so I wouldn’t recommend spending a lot of money on those. With B strapped into the ergo, we did several laps around the park; stopping for a beer, taking in the game at all angles, checking in on the practicing pitchers, and of course lots of people watching.
A great ballpark, super family-friendly, everyone was having a good time…AND the Mariners won!
