We drove down this time and went just a wee bit early, so we could walk up to Pike Place Market and the Waterfront. We stopped at many sports shops looking at hats. I found one I loved, but decided not to buy...although I may go back and get it.
As we walked up we there we were super hungry, so we looked and looked for places to eat that tickled our fancy. We tried the waterfront but it was under construction, so we kept walking. We found a small little Chinese restaurant in the Market to eat at, which was super yummy. I got to eat Honey Glazed Shrimp and Cashew Chicken. Then we headed out to walk the Market
and then head back down to the Triangle bar and then into the game.
We wanted to make sure to get there when the gates opened, as there was only 2,000 hats and there had been more than that many people coming to the games.
Only the Center Field and The Pen gates opened 2 and 1/2 hours early, all other gates opened 2 hours early. When we got to the gates, we got in a line, but it lead to the Left field gate. After standing there for a bit, we realized the gate we were standing at didn't open till 4:05
and it was only 3:20, but if we moved to the longer lines at the Center Field and The Pen gates we could get in in 15ish min.
We got in the line, waited patiently, and then got to finally get our hats.
We had a bit of time before the game started, so we did some picture taking, then the roof opened and we watched some baseball.
