Cincinnati Reds at San Francisco Giants

10 August 2009 No Comment

With Nicole attending her sociology conference in San Francisco, I went to the Sunday afternoon Giants game with my Dad.

Obtaining Tickets
We needed to buy two tickets and again my goal was to find tickets for $10 each. However, I was only offering $15 for two tickets. None of the scalpers would accept my offer until one scalper got creative. He offered us two singles in the upper deck for $15. Since I had sat in the lower level Saturday afternoon and had planned to do the same, I accepted the offer.

As I thought, I sat in the same section I had Saturday afternoon and we were not asked to move once. The reason I chose these sections Saturday was because there were a lot of empty seats no ushers were checking tickets. The sections towards home plate all did.

The Game
Aaron Harang won his first game since May 25 as the Reds defeated the Giants in the rubber match of the three-game series 5-2.

Post Game Dining
After the game, I met the Ultimate Sports Wife at Union Square. Union Square is a 20-25 minute walk from AT&T Park if you want to do some shopping before or after the game.

After wandering around Union Square, we took a cab to the Mission District where we ate dinner at Café Arguello located at 2832 Mission St. and went to Laszlo, located at 2526 Mission St., for some post dinner drinks.
