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)

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
