Yes!  We can get our gluten-free dogs drunk too!!!! :D

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'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I finally found out my gluten issues right after I left a very stressful job and could no longer function I was so ill. Symptoms had gone on for decades before, but it took a moment of stress to bring it to a head. I had anxiety gerd and the irregular heartbeat and I had a nasty bout of shingles when I was 20 which I've subsequently realised was due to my compromised immune system.  Shingles follows a particular nerve  around the body which is probably why Cristiana's dr suspected it. I had it from the front right of torso moving around to my back. The pain you describe is similar to how shingles felt before the blisters arrived, it starts with the skin feeling very tender as if it's been burnt. Maybe you're getting the forerunner to it and your body is successfully stopping it progressing? Ah, enough amateur doctoring from me! I hope you get the answers you need and are soon on the way to recovery. Sending you best wishes.
    • Amaranth and Quinoa: Pseudo-cereal Super Foods
      My latest obsession is creating new quinoa recipes, since my eight year old daughter absolutely loves it! Her favorite is warm quinoa with crumbled turkey sausage, broccoli, and lots of cumin. She also loves it with oil and balsamic vinegar. I like it cold with chopped veggies, garlic, and fresh squeezed lemon juice. View the full article
    • Easy Soy-Mirin Glazed Salmon (Gluten-Free)
      If you're looking for and easy yet exotic way to serve fish, look no further than this soy and mirin glazed salmon. It's easy to make and offers a delicious departure from standard fare. View the full article
    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
