Be Sure To: ■ Visit the aps solar pavilion, which generates supplemental power for the stadium and also provides shade from the desert sun. ■ Check out the vibrant lodo (lower downtown) neighborhood in which the stadium is located, either before or after the game. ■ enjoy the antics of the phillie phanatic, perhaps the sports world’s most popular mascot. big, green, furry, and always funny. Must-eat: ■ Curried chicken tacos with mint-marinated cucumbers and yogurt on top of scallion pancakes. ■ the rockie dog, a foot-long hot dog topped, if you’d like, with grilled peppers, sauerkraut, and onions. ■ the cheesesteaks from tony luke’s are the hot ticket. also try his roast pork with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe. WaShinGTon, dc ★ Nationals Park MiaMi Marlins Park ★ MilWaukee Miller Park Why: ■ because it’s the patriotic thing to do in the nation’s capital — cheer on the defending nl east champion nats. ■ the marlins’ new home, with its unique design and retractable roof, is one of the most talkedabout places in town. ■ brewers fans are world-class tailgaters. the parking lot scene is one of the liveliest (and bestsmelling) in all of baseball. Be Sure To: ■ enjoy a microbrew and the sweeping open-air field views from the red porch, located along the main concourse near the center field gates. ■ have a look at the huge aquarium “backstop” built into the brick wall behind home plate — a well-placed distraction for opposing pitchers. ■ Cheer on your favorite character — brat, polish, italian, hot dog, or Chorizo — during the sausage race in the middle of the sixth inning. Must-eat: ■ anything from ben’s Chili bowl, a local purveyor for 55 years. Faves include the chili dog and chili cheese fries. ■ the latin american Grill’s Cuban sandwich. ham, cheese, pork, and pickles unite for a tasty nod to the local culture. ■ a spicy bratwurst, naturally, from brat boys. it’s a serious cut above the cased meats most other ballparks offer. april 2013 15
