BART Double Play Wednesdays — See the A’s for $2!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Cutest mascot I've ever seen.

In hopes of avoiding accusations of my being a traitor to the city that I call my home, I’m prefacing this post by stating that I don’t really care about the Oakland A’s.  That said, I don’t really care about the Giants either.  I’ve spent the majority of my life in Southern California, so if I’m rooting for any MLB team, it’s the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (shut up or I’ll sic the Rally Monkey on you).

Anyway, the A’s want you to come to their Wednesday home games at the Coliseum.  How do I know this?  Because the tickets are only $2 each and hot dogs are a mere $1 each.  Yeah, you have to drive or BART over, but it’s still a hot deal.  Especially when you consider how many hot dogs you can consume for the price of one Giants bleachers ticket.  Which would be six.  That’s a lot o’ dogs.

It’s a good idea to buy these $2 tickets ahead of time since they tend to sell out.  Go here to purchase/see a list of the remaining available games!

If you’re a Giants fan or you’re on the fence about this for some other reason, remember that the A’s have Stomper, one of the cutest mascots I’ve ever seen in my life.  Not too intimidating, but who’s really paying attention when their mouths are stuffed with hot dogs?

** 11:43pm edit on Saturday night:  I just returned from the game in which the A’s clobbered the Angels 15-1.  I may have to switch my allegiance if the Halos don’t get their butts in gear. **

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
