100 In a Year Project Series | #94 Attend An MLB Game


100InaYear

Last month, I unveiled (or perhaps started) a new project series called 100 In a Year. My take on this project stems from the original game from Day Zero Project in which the ultimate task is to complete 101 goals in 1,001 days. But nahhh, not going to go that route as those projects tend to be a bit more extreme. With this one, I’m taking it simple with a splash of learning who I am as a woman through fun, inspiring, motivating, reflective, uplifting, positive, + just things to keep me busy as I continue to grow.

100

I jumped on this project right away (because who’s gettin’ any younger?) and will blog along the way as I complete each part of the 100 play-by-play series. And you don’t have to go in order. Just flow freely + vibe wherever the wind blows you.

So. here. we. go.


#94 | Attend an MLB game.

Washington Nationals vs. Detroit Tigers (May 9, 2016) 

This wasn’t my first MLB game. But given I’d just started the project over again, I wanted to regain experience in a few things and this was one of them. The outing was completely random; in fact, earlier that day I was crazy busy, rippin’ + runnin’ like a chicken with its head cut off.

No seriously.

A little frustrated and a little tense throughout the day — until I received a text asking if I wanted to have dinner that evening. I did not hesitate in that moment (because again, who’s getting any younger?) I responded with a favored “yes” and proceeded to ask “where?” The person on the other end of the text named a few places including the Nationals brand spanking new Brew House with an amazing overlook onto the field. Well, yes why of course! Let’s do dinner there.

So I get off work (thankfully I was looking cute and had no problem meeting up, given the tough day I’d gone through) so I uber’d to the park. The home team was playing the Detroit Tigers and while I don’t totally, 100% have much experience with baseball, I understand enough of the game to enjoy.

Get there, tickets are purchased with access to the club and we proceed towards the Brewhouse (Center Field Gate). The place is unbelievable, that view I tell ya. There is an inside seating area like any restaurant — and then there is an incredible view of the park outside, also with plenty seating, which is where we sat.

The experience was crazy fun + breezy all together… and the rain held off so that was a plus. The food was great, not to mention you must enjoy a brewsky if you attend ANY sporting event, so that also happened. Unfortunately, my phone died while there so I could only get a few shots in before actually settling in to watch the game and everything that came with it.
