I know this is obviously auto-correct, but I am cracking up!

 

Edit:  Apparently the San Diego Padres actually play at petco park.  Woof Woof!   LOL

Unfortunately, they don't allow dogs except in the park within the park while games are not in play.

 

There are, however, gluten-free dogs being served ... ok ... that sounds wrong too!  Lol :)

This was for som e of the stadiums last year. Haven't seen one for this year. Out stadium sells, wine, mixed drinks, Red Bridge beer, popcorn from a popcorn only stand, ice creams, frozen lemonade so peanuts, chips, some candy, hotdogs ( no bun ) if you go to the grills not the main concession stands.

Also, our ball field lets you being food. If yours doesn't, get in touch with the bosses and they can give you a note to allow some food in. Don't bring in things with the note that you could buy - like a coke. That's just tacky.

I am not sure if Fenway has any gluten-free stuff.  Maybe Gemini knows.

 

The Mets' CITIFIELD has a gluten free snack bar. They sell gluten free dogs, burgers, sausages, I believe.

 

I saw it last summer. ( I say that I "saw it" and did not sample anything from it because I admit, I was too full from breakfast at Freidman's

where I ate a G F bagel and a full breakfast with bacon, etc. and I was a total pig about it ). lol

 

I did not notice anything like that here at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie where we watch the spring training. No G F beer or anything.

I ate a lot of Italian Ice, though.  :D 

 

And yes, you can bring in food if you wish, but no bevs. They check your little cooler bags

I snuck in some mini vodkas (you know like they serve on airplanes?)  and bought seltzer. Not paying $9.00 for a drink. That's robbery during season down here! shameful.

 

How, you ask? No bag? No coat? You don't wanna know where it was hidden.

Fenway has a gluten-free stand. They have Fenway Franks and individually-wrapped buns, plus cookies and a few other things. Also, individual mustard and ketchup packets so you don't have to use the main pumps that everyone touches to their wheat buns. It's a separate push-cart-type stand, so it may not always be in the same place. But it's great that it's separate and just one person handles everything, so you don't have to worry about whether they just served a wheat product to someone else.

One of the concession areas also serves wine. I have no idea whether there's gluten-free beer, as I've always hated beer and was not tempted to look for it. Go Sox!

So, what do they charge for the gluten free stuff?  I have to say I never go to ball games, ever.  Not interested, although I do root for my home team, always.  I just don't have the patience to sit through a game...any game......and I would never buy anything to eat there because of the price.  I heard for a hot dog and beer at Fenway they charge over $10.00. It could be more by now. :o   I just cannot in good conscience pay that much for something when I know I am being totally ripped off.  Same with the movies on the few occasions when I might actually go.....never in a million years will I pay $12.00 for a small soda and a small popcorn. :ph34r:

Well, at Petco, and the reason I posted -- the gluten-free beer was the same price as "regular" beer and at every single beer concession stand.  Still stadium prices, but at least there was no UPcharge for gluten-free.  I don't personally drink beer at the park.  I drink red wine, which is gluten-free and also, conveniently located at every concession stand.

 

We have a strictly gluten-free concession, that Petco has had for several years, with dogs and snacks -- haven't visited it this season because I'm still toting my own food into the park.

 

Will report back with gluten-free snack shack report on May 24th -- retro jersey give-away night -- yep, those of us that are "thrifty" or simply cheap shop tixs by the promotional nights ;)

The beer at Kaufman ( KC Royals) is the same as any bottled beer. Outrageous, yes. But it is so rare that I can go and actually get food items like a normal person. They haven't had any specific gluten-free stuff - so the ice cream, popcorn , etc is the same price. I don't buy concession stand popcorn - it's much better and no cc risk at the popcorn cart.

Yankee Stadium has a gluten-free stand in the Main Hall with hot dogs, sausages and Udi's buns.  They added Morningstar Veggie burgers this year - I assume it comes with a gluten-free bun. 

 

Also, they have Red Bridge at most of thethe Beers of the World stands.  I was in the 3rd tier and unfortunately had to go down to the Main Level to find it on opening day.

I've spent time with you. If  "normal" means hilarious, you're very normal.

Looked up gluten free at Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers) and as usual the Windsor Star newspaper (Canada) ran the story from last summer about gluten free options!

 

It is still advised to call ahead 313-471-2230 for dining options.  (I would go to the web site first)

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
