LET'S GO DODGERS! (CLAP, CLAP, CLAPCLAPCLAP!)
YES! LA beat San Diego on Saturday AND Sunday! We're climbing back to the top where we belong! Only 4 games behind SF ~ We will get there in no time!
San Diego was crawling with Dodger fans! All up and down the Gaslamp Quarter, Dodger fans were everywhere! We decided to have some margaritas at Dick's Last Resort on the patio. What a riot that place is! Our waiter was wearing pink fairy wings, a pink tutu and carried a wand. He was hysterical! They are pretty clever too. The drink menu didn't have any prices on them. I know we could have asked, but didn't really care so we each ordered their EL MUCHO PESOS MARGARITA. Come to find out they were $26.50 each! That's MUCHO PESOS INDEED LOL! They were good tho. We also ordered two REDHEADED SLUTS. If you haven't had those, try them sometime. The shot, I mean.
At the table next to us there was a couple sitting next to each other, perhaps in their 50's. Dick's is known for putting these obnoxious paper "hats" with hysterically rude sayings on them on their guests. This couple's waitress puts one on the guy that says "Hi, my name is Chunks" - his wife was cracking up, being he was a bit "Chunky". Next the waitress puts one on the wife that says "I'm blowing Chunks tonight"...OMG LOL! The husband was dying with laughter as were the rest of us. The waitress says "I've got your back, Chunks!" It's that kind of place. I love it.
We walked to Petco Park and got our seats - which were AMAZING!!!!! We got there just as batting practice was ending. I didn't get my Andre Ethier baseball signed but I got to see him close up which was just as incredible. I don't know what it is about him but he just makes me weak in the knees. Dang. It was a fun game, with a lot of Dodger fans in attendance. I'd be willing to bet the ratio was 70/30 Dodger fans at 70%. It almost felt like being at Dodger Stadium "Let's Go Dodgers" chant was constant. Cheers from the crowd when we scored. High Fives when a great play was made. It was awesome.
During the game the grounds crew came out to do their thing. The Usher song "Yeah" comes on and 3 of the ground crew start dancing! I apologize for the quality of the video but I still wanted to be able to share it with you. It was great - I just love people who know how to have fun!!!
After the game we decide to walk back to the hotel. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis & Marina hotel. It was a beautiful hotel! We wanted the Omni, but it was booked way in advance and now I know why - that's where the Dodgers stay. We head to the lobby bar at our hotel and get some drinks. As we drank we looked around the room. Just then I notice a huge dark skinned guy with a small entourage with him. I said to my husband "I think that's Yasiel Puig..." he says no, it's not. Hmmm. I think to myself, it sure looks like him. Finally I said, "I really think that's him!" So my husband goes over there and looks back at me and says, "yeah, it's him!" - but, he was only there for about 5 minutes, then left. It was just cool to see him outside of the stadium.
