The catalyst for our downtown adventure last night was an art reception.
Because we could not afford the parking garage we parked east, far east.
I knew the Padre’s where not playing, but the stadium was all lit up. As we walked west we noticed the gate to go through the ballpark was open. As we walked through we could see a game going on, with people only seated in the lower level behind home plate and a little to 1st and 3rd base. How bizarre it was to see the entire stadium fully lit, with mostly empty seats.
Later we found out it was high school teams playing. What a waste of energy, but what a thrill for them.
As we left the reception we decided to check out the new foot bridge at night.
What a thrill for us.
