Beyond Peanuts and Cracker Jacks

Spring training has started, trade rumors are flying, and it's almost time to break out the glove...baseball is upon us!



Thanks to Apples for the heads up (since she's just as excited about the beginning of the season as I am), as the Washington Nationals have announced their local food vendors for the new stadium.

Among some of the big names: Ben's Chili Bowl, Boardwalk Fries, Gifford's Ice Cream, Red Hot and Blue, and Hard Times Cafe will all have locations at the stadium.

Rounding up the line up will be Cantina Marina, Krazee Ice, Kosher Sports, Le Piccola Gelateria, Mayorga Coffee, and Noah's Pretzels.

I'm glad to see the inclusion of so many truly local establishments, though it would have been nice to see more diversity. A Julia's Empanadas would have been perfect, as would some kind of local mircobrew operation to add some diversity to your normal choices of Bud or Bud lite.

Still, this will be a huge improvement over RFK. I just can't wait for the season to start!

Those new bathrooms had better be working at maximum strength.
