Road Trip to Chase Field

The ballpark formerly known as the BOB (Bank One Ballpark) provides respite from life's challenges both through the leisurely baseball experience as well as being an air-conditioned park. Very comfortable, easy to get to concessions, bathrooms, and pretty decent microbrews. Big concourses. Easy to get out of the ballpark. Altogether a solid baseball experience. When it's 106 outside, that a/c is mighty appreciated. If the evening cools off enough, they'll open up the roof. The pool, I was disappointed to find out, is just for private parties. Still, it's a fine ballpark, with vegetarian food choices, decent beer, mediocre scotch. The sausages were highly rated.
