Boundary’s own Graphic Designer, Tammy Findlay went to the Bellingham Bells game last Tuesday. She’s still talking about how much fun she had that evening and making plans for hitting up some more games this week. Check out why she loved it so much:
Okay, let’s just start by saying I’m not really that knowledgeable about baseball. American Football is my first love. So I could pretend to give you a run down of the Bell’s win on Tuesday by piecing together what other talented baseball writers had to say, but I have a feeling I’d muck it up. Here’s my version. The Bell’s played an awesome game! They totally rocked the field. There were great hits, lots of steals, double plays, heads up snags, strikeouts and lots of high fives. We all had plenty to cheer for.
Honestly I didn’t think I was in the mood for a beer yet, because of, umm, last night had hit me a little hard. But when my friend exclaimed, “Wow! This beer is really freakin good right now!”, I had to have a sip. Now I think Boundary Bay beer is good on any day, but something was elevating the taste–a magical mix of the perfect beer temperature, sunny weather, good company, and a baseball team that was really kicking some (pick your exploitive). I was on board. And only $2 a beer. That is a deal impossible to pass up.
Actually, the whole Bells package is a great deal. On two dollar Tuesdays, admission and Boundary Beers are only $2. Concessions are at reasonable prices as well. You can bring your whole family and still be able to put gas in the car for the way back home. Even on a regular admission day, tickets are only $6.
On second thought, save that gas money. Tonight is Bike to the Ballpark. Come see the Bells take on Wenatchee at 6:30pm. Check out the Smart Trips website to plan your bike route. They’ve got a great map of bike friendly routes and trails.
The lineup of Bells games this week continues with Haggen $1 Family Feast Night on Friday, July 23rd at 6:30 p.m. All concessions are only $1 each! And bring your canine companion because it is also Bark in the Park night with the additional $1 admission proceeds benefitting the Whatcom Humane Society. Dogs will be allowed on the grassy lawn area on the East side of the field. I really wish every night was Bark in the Park night, because I brought my dog on Tuesday and they wouldn’t let me bring her in. Thank you to the door person for helping me keep an eye on her. Dear city, if you are listening, I’ll gladly pay the extra $1 to get my dog in any night. She’s not very adept at dodging fly balls.
And if you couldn’t make it Thursday or Friday, there is still Saturday’s game vs. Wenatchee @ 6:30 p.m. It’s Hometown Heroes Night presented by U.S. Customs and Border Protection
If you want to feel good about baseball again, (no offense, Mariners), come see the Bellingham Bells.
