Whadda ya know? It’s Wednesday again. We all know what that means. (<—- there are 6 W’s in that intro! That seems like a lot to me for being such an obscure letter.) Random.
Oh but before I do that…here is at least one snack I had this week.
You know you love the pretzel bun. I just got word that they are selling these at the Costco in Albuquerque. RUN don’t walk to go and get some. (I mean…finish reading this first…but then after that….)
Last Wednesday I got to go to a Sounders game (Seattle soccer for those of you not in the know…) as part of a work function. We got to sit in one of the boxes and I got a parking pass. Entertainment that doesn’t involve dealing with parking, paying for parking, walking from parking, and not having to sit amongst some loud crazy soccer fans spilling $10 beer all over me? Sure, I’m into that. (Don’t worry lots of what I ate is further down the page….)
Most of the rest of the peeps that were coming took a bus over to the stadium but I drove myself. That meant I got there early and ended up being alone in the box. I felt extremely full-time fancy for the 10 min I was there all by my lonesome.
And I could take pictures of the room and the food without feeling like a complete weirdo and having to explain myself to a bunch of people who don’t care anyway.
Each box has their own private bathroom. I was very excited about this for some reason.
And the food…ohhh the food. Let me just tell you how hard it was not to just dive into all this stuff before everyone else got there. Especially when you see the cheese plate. I can’t remember the last time I held such restraint.
Ok here it is. I mean look at that. A thing of beauty indeed. I tried every kind on the plate. The Gouda, goat, blue and brie were my favorites. I know that’s like half of it, but what can I say, I have never met a cheese I didn’t like.
I had one of the peanut butter cookies and half of a blondie triangle thing.
Is this not the coolest thing? I love this city so much.
This was so much fun. Last year I was invited to sit in the box as well and was so excited that I got to do it again. I love going to all sorts of sporting events, and enjoy being down in the crowd as well, but being able to sit comfortably and have all this yummy food right at your disposal? Well, its just plain cool. My job may def have its challenges, but it for sure has its perks as well.
In the off chance I get to go again AND am the first one there, I’m thinking the cheese plate just goes in my purse and we act like it was never there to begin with?
Have you ever been able to sit in a box at a professional sporting event? Did you get yummy food and an amazing cheese plate too?
