Wine and Baseball in San Francisco

During my first trip to San Francisco, I could not resist visiting AT&T Park, home of the Giants.  I purchased tickets for September 7th, a Sunday afternoon game against the Pittsburg Pirates.  The ballpark was chosen as this year's best sports facility, and we saw why.

Everything a couple or group could possibly need to enjoy a ballgame were here.  Easy access by public transportation, phenomenal concessions, extra large jumbotron, televisions showing live football, and great views inside and out were so distracting, one might not even notice a game was going on! 

We actually thought that was happening at first because not only were the Giants looking lackluster and losing, but the park itself was devoid of atmosphere.  Then the place exploded as the Giants rode a hit parade, scoring 10 runs without a home run!  After that, we toured around the park, drooling at concessions like Gilroy's Garlic Fries, chowder bread bowls, fajitas, italian sausage, crabcakes, and Caribbean BBQ.  There are also Carls Jr. for burger fans as well.

Now for beverages.  There are many microbrews to be had highlighted by Anchor Steam (for $8.50!).  And there may be no crying in baseball, but there is wine-ing!  Local heavy producing wineries are on the menu like Kendall Jackson, Clos du Bois, Ravenswood, and Cellar No. 8.  They are served in plastic cups for about $7-8 per.  So go to the ballpark, get your beer on, get your dog on, and get your wine on!
