Pre Chili Crawl Cincinnati Reds Game Friday April 11 7:10PM

CNW and I are planning to go to the Cincinnati Reds Game the evening before the big Chili Crawl.
We thought we would create a a separate thread so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle.
 
We thought we would see if anyone else is interested so that we can get a proper head count for tickets.
Incidentally the Reds will be playing the Tampa Bay Rays.
 
So if anyone would like to attend with us, please post here.

I'm almost certain Smalls doesn't have salads on their menu.
 
The do serve a helluva good Smoked Brisket Bibimbap, though.

P.S. Dale, as much as I enjoy your company (Chris too), I've become disillusioned with baseball, so I too will be focused on dinner(s) Friday night.

Ava hasn't ever been to any type of major league ball game, so this will be good for her to experience.
Do you know ticket prices yet? I can mail you a check or paypal you the $$

I secure all of my funds from the 1st National Chi Town Bank in beautiful downtown Westmont IL
 
Seriously, after discussions with CNW via PM it looks like he may take the lead on securing tickets. You may want to get in touch with Chris via PM

Looking forward to meeting Ava too!

It all depends on how many people decide to go and what the deadline is. I plan to purchase the tickets online from a reseller in order to get decent seats at less then face value. I have used several of them for various sporting events without any problems. I would like to get seats on the first or second deck along the base lines as opposed to the outfield. With it being so early in the season, the big discounts just aren't there. I told Dale that my max budget was $30.00 a ticket. If I cant get within the base lines, I'll go out to the outfield and then I'll go up into the upper deck.
However, if the majority of people requesting tickets have a lower max price or prefer to sit in a different part of the stadium I am flexible. At least when it comes to watching a baseball game.

Chris,
 
I'm fine with the alotted budged, however if  we have a choice between "outfield" or "infield upper deck" I'd prefer to go with "infield upper deck" of course majority rules.

Wow, I came here to say $30 wouldn't be a problem for outfield or second deck but their prices skyrocketed for this season. Three postseason appearances in four years has a price.

I'm sure WJ won't mind if I hijack this thread and turn it into the all encompassing Friday night thread.
 
For those not attending the baseball game, there will be a pie throw-down on Friday evening. For the throw-down venue I suggest the breakfast area of the Quality Suites in Blue Ash. Spacious, fashionable and designed for fine dining.

 
For timing, it makes sense to begin when participants return from their evening meals. Any ideas on when folks will be returning to the hotel?

Jim,
 
Since you're not the king of hijacked threads (Bill Voss) then its ok 
 
Bonk,
 
I checked stub hub, plenty of upper deck seats for under $30, there also appears to be a few infield seats in the $32 range

I  suggest that you all get take-out and brown bag  BYOB and eat right there!   If you come in later, you may find the tables full of senior citizens, drinking the free coffee and playing cards!

Thanks Dale. We'll leave the leftover pies () in the breakfast area for the baseball fans when they return.

What makes you think we're not running a 24 hour operation?

We like the way CTD thinks!
 
Due to some logistical issues, a head-to-head pie throwdown on Friday won't be happening. Instead, we will be sampling the results of a Pie Scavenger Hunt at the Quality Inn each night. Bake or buy a pie and bring it to the breakfast area at 9:00 (or some other time TBD) on Friday and Saturday. We can share and compare the pies that make back to the hotel uneaten.
