Yikes! Sloppy of me to book things before checking game tickets. I put my name on the waitlist, we'll see what happens.

Me too. I still have a flight booked for Friday arrival in case tickets aren’t available.

I originally thought a minor league game wouldn’t be a tough ticket but the Savannah Bananas are a unique team.

​​​​​Banana Ball is a unique game. Baseball and a show.

The way I read it on the Bananas website, tickets go on sale 2 months prior to the game, so I doubt the games are sold out. $150 for a (likely) unremarkable dinner and (likely) unremarkable beer seems a bit rich. Let's wait for the tickets to go on sale.

Back when Violist and lili were regular attendees, they always headed to Stroud's after (Oklahoma/KC) Joe's early Saturday afternoon.
The Strouds that was close to KC Joes closed a few years ago. I liked going there asa palate cleanser from the BBQ.
