What's up Nationals fans?
My 3 friends and I will be visiting Nationals Park weekend of July 7 (I know, this fanpost is a little premature), and I haven't been here since 2010. You have a gorgeous ballpark and I needed to comeback to visit (plus I'm hoping Harper will be up with you guys by then.)
I don't know if anything has changed since then, but I was wondering if you could help me out with a few things.
First, I need to know what is the "must eat" item at the park. You can even list 3 or 4, I'll try anything and everything as long as it is good. I saw this morning that they now have an 8 pound StrasBurger which I would love to try. But other than that, I just need to know what my friends and I need to hit up in regards to food.
Next, and could be most important, is what craft beers does the ballpark offer this year. Anything new? And where are the best places to get a craft beer at the park. Our seats are in section 114. So hopefully there is somethign close by. If not, not big deal. But if anyone can provide me with which craft beers they have and where, that would be much appreciated.
Also, what is the average price for beers at the park?
I read that a biergarten just opened up last year called Das Bullpen. Worth checking out before the game?
Lastly, we will be in town Friday thru Sunday, so my friends and I are wondering if there are any places you recommend we check out in regards to having a good time. We are staying at the Westin on M street and from the research it looked like we are right smack in the middle of the different areas of DC that have good beer places. We have done our research for beer places and lists places like Paradiso and Churchkey (not sure if I'm spelling that right) and I've been to Capitol Hill Brewery a bunch of times. But was wondering if any baseball fans have any of their own recommendations.
I appreciate any input you can provide me with.
Thanks everyone, and best of luck on the season. I'm rooting for you guys to win the Division.
