Why is it Called Labor Day When Everyone Has the Day Off?

Carbo loading for the duration of the game

Mom, I don't need that tissue anymore!

How not to set a good example for your children.


Emily was so psyched to see herself on the Jumbotron , catch foul balls or see movie stars!
Who am I kidding - she was psyched for cotton candy, ice cream, and a hot dog. She said she would just drink water instead of soda because she thought she was getting too much junk today.

Field level tickets to the Labor Day Dodgers Game : priceless (thanks mr. vendor man)

Parking Pass to Labor Day Dodger Game: unbelievably priceless (front row parking)

Two beers, two Dodger dogs, two soft serve ice creams, one gigantic hot pastrami sandwich from Cantor's Deli (for two) one 16 ounce bottle of water, one bag of popcorn, cotton candy = $103.87

No shit. $8.00 for a Budweiser. And that is in dollars, not Euros. That's like $1.00 an ounce. There's only a few things that if they cost $1.00 an ounce , that would be a good thing. And two of them are illegal.

Sounds (and looks) like you guys had a great time.

I would NEVER pay that much for a 8 oz. beer. Although, a Dodge dog and a beer does sound good.

Hehehe... I know which two are illegal...

So any movie star sightings??

Daaaaamn. Dollar an ounce? And that's not a buy...it's a rental. Hope you crossed it and held on to it for awhile.

Great post! I am jealous you got to relax and spend lots of money. I had to host a family party and never got to drink a beer...

My husband loves to take the girls to the Ted for Braves games. I look at it as an opportunity to get a pedicure. Can you take food into the game there? If so, I'll have to give you Michael's trick for taking beer into the stadium...

Seriously, the cost of these things is awful! Although your kids will remember having such a wonderful time with you, it is probably money well spent!!

Hey, thanks for giving me all kinds of bloggy love lately. Meant a lot. :-)

Hope we can re-plan our Vegas meet-up so I can convince your mom that I'm your crazy pyscho bloggy friend.

ps. We have season tix to the D-Backs..Aren't those snacks a bitch? Glad you had a great time.

pps. Dodgers suck. I'm pissed at them for spanking the D-Backs this past week. ;-)

ppps. Sigh..What I'd give for some of that illegal stuff right now.

Goooooooooooood times...

I'd totally pay $8, but not for Bud. Definitely Corona--at a ballpark. Oh yeah, that would rock.

Loved the pictures!

No matter the price tag - MUST have beer for the game!

Debbie said...

Isn't it strange how cold beer tastes the best when it is CHEAP! But I have to admit that I knew I had grown up when I quit giving a damn about what it cost and just started buying it at the really expensive places, like ball games and concerts.

that can get you in trouble in a hurry!
