Actually, it was RBA's post about Coronado/Petco that reminded me to put this on the board.
If any of you are in San Diego this summer and the Pads are playing consider this as an entertainment option:
The Marriott Gaslamp Quarter is right by Petco Park. On the 22nd floor they have an outdoor bar called 'Altitude'. It looks right down into Petco and you can actually see the ball from there (surprised me). It also has numerous TV's around the place that allow you to watch the game that way.
We were there last Friday night and the place was packed (lot's of pretty people but they let me in anyway : ). The seats along the wall are busy but folks rotate pretty well and we were able to get seats looking into the park in about 15-20 minutes. Some nights they have fireworks after the game which must be awesome from that vantage point.
Maybe there are other places around the league that you can do this but it was unique for me.
Add to that, the Gaslamp Quarter really jumps with a lot of restaurants, clubs, music and (most of all) people! We were there for the Jazz Festival and it was great!
