A Rainy Night at the Ballpark












We had a very fun, as well as rainy night at the ballpark on Saturday watching the Tigers play in Detroit at Comerica Park. It worked out that both of my daughters and their boyfriends could go and we weren't going to let a little (a lot) of rain stop us. There were 2 1/2 hours of rain relays in all, but we just found a covered bar in the stadium and waited out the raindrops with patience and a few drinks.

To maximize our time downtown, we started out the night by heading to the ballpark a few hours before game time and went to a fun bar right next to the stadium (Cheli's Chili Bar) and had dinner. It was packed with Tigers fans and the atmosphere was lively, the food was good and we had a great time there.

We walked to the stadium in the rain, but held out hope that the rain would eventually stop. Luckily it did and we were able to enjoy 5 innings, before the heavens opened again and we decided to head home and catch the end of the game on television.

You plan these things and the weather doesn't always cooperate, but with the right attitude, raincoats and good company, it can still be a wonderful time.

Happy Monday!
