Back From the Desert

All good things come to an end.  Sad to see the trip end as I had a great time in Arizona.  I got to see three games and meet up with fellow blogger Daniel. Big props to him for hooking me up with tickets on Friday.  My brother and I greatly appreciate it.

Our down time was spent eating food and drinking some local brews. I probably need to cleanse for a week or two to get back in working order.  All diets out the window for vacation.

Here are a few pictures from the trip.  If you follow me on Twitter some of these may be repeats.

 I thought the in game experience was pretty good at Chase Field.  We sat on both the first and third base sides and enjoyed each. We were kind of surprised at the lack of attendance for the fireworks night, especially since the Dbacks are so good at home.

 A couple more drinks I would have probably tried to jump in....

 Note: Neither were the real Clemente...
 This was a flight of delicious beer from the Arizona Wilderness brewery.
 I got really close and the security didn't say anything....
 Make some Noise!!!!
 This was a cool shot of Cutch

 My wife laughs at me because I'm totally anti fireworks. Usually I just use them as an excuse to beat traffic or head to a bar after the game.  This is proof to her that I actually watched them.

 A view from the craft beer bar in the outfield.
 Another picture with proof of purchase!

This was taken at the top of our hotel.  I don't think we were supposed to be up there. 

Overall this was a great trip. I'm already trying to decide where the 2018 trip might be. Early favorite is San Francisco.  

Thanks for reading.  I'll announce the contest winner tomorrow.

  1. What a time! My wife and I thought about heading to AZ to see the Redbirds-and of course hit some local brews. Well done.

    1. Let me know if you go. We loved Arizona Wilderness brewery. It was about 15 miles outside of town, but well worth it. Couple of great craft beer bars in the area too.

    1. San Francisco was actually my number 1 choice but the series is the same time as a family vacation. My wife has family out there so me just try to go no matter who is playing. I want to see that stadium.

  7. San Francisco has one of the best ballparks and atmospheres. Will be really jealous if you make it there. I'm a vegetarian now, but get the dungeness crab sandwich.

    1. I've always put San Francisco on the backburner because my wife wants to visit her cousin that is out there, but the timing has worked out for the Pirates series. I may just have to go and see whatever team the Giants are playing.
