Where the one percenters watch baseball.

Hint: it's not a picnic table in the parking lot.

On Friday I had the occasion to go to a Nats game, my first since May! There's only a month of baseball left, really, so it's a good idea to fit these in whenever possible. It turns out Blake is able to get insanely good tickets from a partner at his office, so we did that. Best seats I've ever had, by far.


This was about our 43rd attempt at a decent photo.


They were in The Diamond Club, and thus came with an unlimited buffet, beer, and wine, and there are people to fetch you the food if you don't want to go back indoors to get it yourself. And the seats are super padded! While I am traditionally of the mind that baseball is meant to be watched in a hard seat with a hot dog while sweating one's ass off, I was fine with an exception just this once. :)

We chatted a little bit with the partner and his wife as they were in the same row, but also did some of our own exploring and sharing bar tables indoors with random fans. As for food I had an Italian sausage, beet salad, roast vegetables, and a lovely slice of prime rib. Yeah, not quite the usual day at the ballpark. Also, it was a Bobblehead Giveaway Night, and we spanked the Rockies with very little effort needed. Great baseball night.


Hanging with Max Scherzer. They even got his eye colors right!
