We visit BB&T Ballpark, the new home of the Winston-Salem Dash. Page 4: Concessions, For the Kids
FOR THE KIDS
What kid wouldn’t love a 12,000-square-foot play area? It’s located to the back of the center-field concourse and features various play areas, jumping houses and a carousel moved over from Ernie Shore Field (and cleaned up in the process, it looks like). Combine that with a huge left-field berm, plenty of Muppets videos shown during game breaks (you cannot go wrong with the Muppets on the big screen!) and you’ve got a ballpark built for families.
The place to start is a Natty Greene’s microbrew, on tap for only $5. A full assortment of the locally produced microbrew (we noted Guilford Golden Ale, Southern Pale Ale and Buckshot Amber Ale) can be found at three concession stands on the main concourse and many of the additional 20 points of sale ringing the concourse. In fact, any beer is $5, whether it be a tap or a Bud/Bud Light tallboy. Otherwise, the concessions are fairly standard: Dash Dogs ($3), burgers, Domino’s Pizza, popcorn and more. A broader selection of food, including carved sandwiches, can be found at the second-level club.
BEFORE/AFTER THE GAME
If you didn’t get enough Natty Greene microbrews at the ballpark, head over to Foothills Brewing, a short drive away. (Foothills Brewing, 638 W. 4th St., Winston-Salem, NC 27101-2730; 336/777-3348.)
