saturday night at the ballpark

this weekend we watched the braves vs the mets at turner field. it was a close game and the braves pulled it out! summer nights at the ballpark are the best - beers, peanuts, and baseball. I love that there are many different ways to experience a braves game! 

a few weekends ago we went with some friends and sat at the 755 club the whole evening, eating pizza and drinking wine. a few summers ago, I exclusively sat at the chop house bar, often times standing at the railing for an unrestricted view. this weekend, we had 6th row seats and went with my dad which means... holeman and finch burgers are required. with so many different braves baseball experiences, you're guaranteed to have a good time.

whenever we go to a game with my dad, we have to go to the holeman and finch burger stand. $13 gets you a double patty, double cheese burger on thick buttery buns with pickles and onions. we opt out of the pickles and onions. I can't imagine how many burgers these folks churn out every game, especially with such long lines and multiple locations within turner field.

the draw to these burgers resembles folklore, in the past - holeman and finch only served 24 burgers a night and only after 10pm at their full line restaurant. it was first come, first serve during the week after 10pm and the burger was also available for brunch. given the success of the burger, holeman and finch has changed their policy to include the burger on their dinner menu.

I split a burger with stephen and was totally satisfied, but I'll admit, it was somewhat painful to watch other people devour their burgers later in the stands. I wanted more!

what dreams are made of: the holeman and finch burger and braves baseball

since the game fell over father's day weekend, there were a lot of fathers in the crowd including ours. the free boyz II men concert after the game also drew a decent audience, although we didn't stay to check it out.

happy father's day to all dads out there, hope you had a great weekend celebrating!
