On Wednesday night, I finally went to my inaugural Atlanta Braves’ game with our friends Ross and Jen. Thankfully, the weather cooled off nicely and we got a great lightning show in the background of the game.
Not only was the game fun (and the Braves won), but I got to try out the gluten-free food stand, located at section 106. I ordered the hamburger, which comes with a bun made with tapioca and rice flour. It’s hard to believe that in the same week, I got to eat hamburgers with gluten-free buns at two different places in the ATL. Ridiculous.
While my burger wasn’t anything fancy, it was ballpark cuisine and it’s fun to enjoy greasy, made 2 hours ago, food at a baseball game. It’s all part of the experience, right? And we, celiacs, should be able to partake in the experience, and enjoy a cold beer (Redbridge) if we’re feeling parched.
The total cost for a Redbridge beer and a GF hamburger was $13. So just like everyone else at a professional sports event, I paid too much for my food, but it could have been worse, considering we’re used to spending more money on gluten-free food. All part of the ballpark experience!
Other items on the menu include: hot dogs, chicken sandwich, popcorn, potato chips, macaroons and even cupcakes made by American Gra-Frutti.
Make sure you get to Turner Field this summer and keep the gluten-free stand in business. Hopefully even more professional sports teams will serve gluten-free options at their concession stands. Do you know of any others? Please share! Here’s a list of some of the other professional sports teams I’ve found:
