After what seemed an endless wait, baseball is back! Yesterday was Opening Day for the Miami Marlins. I’ve never seen the stadium so packed.
The Marlins Stadium has undergone some changes since last year. The changes are for the better with new and improved food offerings which include far more Latin and Latin inspired food choices.
Now you can come for the food and stay for the game!
Of course, your basics including hotdogs and hamburgers, as well as popcorn, pretzels, and beer are still here, because those are staples of the baseball diet, but now you can also have mojo pork tacos (available on the $5 menu) as well as ceviche and Mexican street food. In fact, you have over 14 new and updated eateries.
But there is so much more…
Gone is the old dolphin and water feature which reminded one of a water theme park and in its place is a new upscale lounge called “DEX Imaging” which features a club based upon the “Miami Vibe”. I’m hoping to give a more detailed review soon, but in the meantime, this modern club adds another luxurious factor to the updated Marlins Stadium. The Clevelander remains and the lower level party there continues.
There’s been a lot of thought put into the new food menu. From regional celebrity chefs including Chef José Andrés, and I assume a few others, providing some of the best offerings Miami can showcase, to the new $3 – $5 dollar menu available at two of the new eateries, Miami Marlins Park is accessible to all of our fans. So you’ll have good taste and inclusivity.
The Budweiser bar also remains, it’s one of my favorite spots.
The opening day itself was exceptionally well attended, Marc Anthony was there, “Marlins Man” was there, and a contingent of media, including some from as far as Australia were there as well. If I missed any other celebrities then you all have my apologies.
Don’t forget to leave early for the games, as there is always traffic. You can park at the many stadium lots or outside where enterprising individuals profit by offering up whatever spots they can.
While the Marlins lost 6-3, I wasn’t upset at all. Between the new players, our old favorites and so many new experiences at Marlins Park, this season is one of the most promising yet!
I’m thinking its easier than ever to get great ticket deals this year so give a call ahead and see what you can get.
