I haven't eaten at a Round Table Pizza since I was in high school. Used to like them, but didn't know they were still in business.

Chuck, At Cal Poly we used to drive out to Los Osos for Round Table because that was the only one around. They aren't as good as they used to be.

^Our go-to pizza joint was Eddie's on Foothill Blvd. It was run by this guy from the Philippines with a scar on his face--but he made a good pizza.

After an ever so slight technical delay (read: updated my phone to jelly bean and thought I lost all my photos), I return with the second part of my Coasting for Kids adventure: AT&T Park. Home of that team with the guy who just got caught using Testosterone. As much as I hate said team (I am a Dodger fan), I have to admit their park is really nice.

Now onto the photos!
ATT Park01.jpg
Welcome to AT&T park. Conveniently located a couple blocks from the CalTrain station (which I easily took from San Jose).
ATT Park02.jpg
Dodgers scouting report (got to love Ned Coletti) or Giants "hall of fame" that is outside the stadium? You decide.
ATT Park16.jpg
The stadium just so happens to be located right on the Bay, as you can see here from the top row of the stadium
ATT Park15.jpg
...And here. Where people try to get "Splash hits" (home runs over the RF wall and into the bay)
ATT Park05.jpg
Speaking of RF, It also has a free viewing area in RF where you can catch the game for a maximum of 3 innings.
ATT Park04.jpg
Said view during batting practice (or "BP" if Elissa is reading this!)
ATT Park06.jpg
They also allow re-entry. Which is freaking awesome. Since in LA, people are too stupid to allow such a thing.
ATT Park11.jpg
Here's the obligatory family play area that all new stadiums seem to have now.
ATT Park09.jpg
Virgin America club level concourse. The whole level was climate controlled, which was awesome since it was like 95 degrees outside.
ATT Park10.jpg
Hooray for more alcohol on the club level!
ATT Park08.jpg
I took this picture just for Elissa. Wonder why? (more fancy food you can only get in the club level)
ATT Park13.jpg
The club level also features a museum, where this is by far the coolest thing (I chose to ignore that pennant they have on display :P)
ATT Park07.jpg
Instead of a "dugout club" fancy restaurant, AT&T park just features a upgraded food court area for its seats behind home plate. Which is awesome, because it keeps prices down.
ATT Park17.jpg
...So you can get views like this for $110!
ATT Park18.jpg
...and food like this not normally available in a ballpark setting!
ATT Park12.jpg
Speaking of food, here's AT&T Park's signature item.
ATT Park20.jpg
Seems like a good note to end this report on. Sign from a bar outside the stadium.

Great report, AT&T park looks like one of the absolute nicest anywhere in professional sports. I've kinda of stopped following baseball over the past couple of years but if I ever wind up in San Fran during the summer I really want to catch a game there.

One a side note, I've always thought it would be a cool idea for a baseball stadium to build a small wooden roller coaster on site that could operate before and during home games. I mean baseball and wooden roller coasters are about as synonymous with summer time as fire works and apple pie (excuse my bad cliches), so why not build a small Big Fun style GCI or Wooden Warrior style coaster at a ball park? Charge $5 per ride, half off during the 7th inning stretch and before the game or something. The organization might not make a ton of money off of it, but being able to provide a unique experience like that at the ball park for the guests would be well worth it in my opinion. How cool would a small midway with a coaster, ferris wheel, and a drop tower be in straight away center field? If anyone out there owns a MLB franchise, build a wooden coaster!

^You can almost get that experience in Altoona, PA. The Pirates AA team (Altoona Curves) play in a stadium where the Lakemont Park Skyliner is just on the other side of the right field fence.

Yeah I've seen pictures of that place and it looks like the coolest baseball stadium ever. If you could only access the load station from the outfield bleachers that place would be perfect :cry: .
