Road Trip to Busch Stadium

Architecturally, the new Busch Stadium is definitely a delight. A downtown park, it's convenient by foot, public transportation (Metrolink) and by the freeway. The left-field has better chances of being in the shade, something important in those hot midwest days. It's worthwhile spending more money for better seats. Bleachers are better than being in an upper deck by the foul pole (often true at ballparks). Food is, well, midwestern. Expect lots of meat and starch. Beer at Busch Stadium is not going to delight the micro-brew fans: this Bud's for you, but it's the same ballpark premium price.
