Celebrate the start of baseball season with the perfect day at the ballpark
SPONSORED — Sometimes, the best seat in the house isn’t a seat at all.
That’s because there isn’t a better ballpark to walk around than the one in Seattle.
That’s true whether it’s strolling around the outfield concourse, looking down on everything from the bullpens to the bar behind the centerfield wall, or walking up to the upper-deck landing overlooking left field (Section 349) to catch the sunset.
Baseball shows off the best side of Seattle whether it’s the outdoor beer gardens before the game or walking around the park during the game.
It’s a park built to showcase what’s great about Seattle, and this year, there’s something new coming later this year: cocktails.
Heritage Distilling opened the BSB Lounge last year, which is located on the terrace level down the third-base line. Later this year, the plan is for cocktails to be available on the main concourse and patrons will be free to take the drinks to their seats.
Walkable. It’s an adjective we usually hang on cities, but it fits Seattle’s baseball park perfectly, and while there’s nothing wrong with watching the whole game from your seats, you’re missing out on more than half the experience whether it’s heading out to left-field for the garlic fries on the main concourse or the tacos behind Edgar’s cantina.
Jack’s Barbecue is available in the stadium this year. There’s a grilled-cheese bar. Dynamite chicken. It’s not a one-stop shop so much as an opportunity nibble and sip your way through an afternoon or evening.
And if you’re looking to recreate a ballpark treat while you’re watching at home, well Heritage Distilling Co. has that covered for you, too, with the 2018 baseball-themed cocktail.
In a cinnamon-sugar rimmed tumbler of ice:
2 oz. Heritage Distilling Co.’s BSB, Brown Sugar Bourbon
1/3 oz lime juice
top with ginger ale
stir and garnish with a skewered churro slice
