What’s a more fitting activity to do with your twin sister than go to a Minnesota Twin’s Game?? (Note to my Irish roommate: the baseball team was not named after us…)
My wonderful mother bought us 4 tickets with awesome seats right behind the Twins dugout (we’re so spoiled). It was a rainy Wednesday but in-between getting yelled at for having my umbrella up (twice, oops) and seeing those hot baseball players up close 😉 it was a fantastic time! Though I did spend a large portion of the game flinching because foul balls were flying all over us
We also walked around the entire stadium scoping out all the great food options. Andrew Zimmern even has a restaurant in there serving top quality steak sandwiches and cucumber lemonade (tip: add vodka)! After perusing the stalls on the lookout for something not fried and quintessential to a Midwestern baseball game (i.e. fake hot dogs and chicken tenders); I found the lovely stand that is Kramarczuk’s sausage. Nothing screams classy baseball watcher like a big, juicy sausage overflowing with onions and sauerkraut.
The great thing about Wednesday night games is that it’s ‘Student Night’ which means $1 (fake) HOT DOGS!!! and cheap tickets but that comes in second! Though I splurged on a real ‘hot dog’ this time; I’m never opposed to shitty encased meats once in a blue moon… (Shoutout to the other night’s ‘Blood Moon’)
Since the twin invited her bf to the game, I didn’t wanna be caught third wheeling AGAIN, so I invited one of my girl friends to join me. She was pretty quick to come alone when she found out where the seats were located. It’s always a good time with the other Rachel!
Well until next season Twins, and for now I guess my real twin will have to suffice over the long winter season 🙂
