***A bit of blogkeeping: Congratulations to Kayla (Comment #2), randomly-selected winner of 2 general admission tickets to tonight’s Night Before 9: Out in Art! Please check your email for more details.
Also, wishing the happiest of birthdays to the most wonderful of husbands! Matthew, I love you so much and hope this day and the coming year bring you all the happiness you bring Jeffrey and me every day!***
On Tuesday, Matthew and I had plans to meet up with friends Nathan and Lane to enjoy one of the “Battle of Ohio” games, as the Cleveland Indians took on the Cincinnati Reds. Before the game, Matthew and I were invited to have dinner at the Terrace Club, which boasts great views of the field, as well as tasty food.
Our dinner was a special part of the #SocialSuite experience for the night, as the Terrace Club wanted us to try a potential new menu item: the Terminal Tower nachos.
Named for the downtown skyline’s most recognizable landmark, these nachos are layers of crispy tortillas, chicken, pulled pork, queso sauce, and pico de gallo, topped with a whole jalapeno. We really enjoyed this dish, especially how crisp the tortillas stayed, even with all the filling. While the nachos could use a bit more spice, overall they were quite tasty and plenty to share among a table. Watch the Terrace Club menu for this new item to be appearing at a future home stand.
We also sampled lots of the other appetizers (fried pickles and fried calamari were two favorites at our table). Matthew had the 50’s burger, which features double patties, swiss and cheddar, and bacon. I had the grilled chicken, avocado, and bacon sandwich.
The food is really good, plus you get to enjoy it in a restaurant-style atmosphere, while not missing a moment of the game.
You can eat at the Terrace Club whenever you have game tickets; you just need to make a reservation. You can also host private events at the Terrace Club while the Tribe is on the road. Click here for more information on Terrace Club dining. This may be my new favorite way to take in a game…the food is a winner, even when the game is not!
Also, there are exciting changes coming to Progressive Field for next season, including a two-story bar, neighborhood-focused areas of the ballpark (e.g., Ohio City, Tremont), a remodeled and more open Gate C, and an expanded Kids’ Clubhouse! Check out the changes here.
***Disclosure: I was invited by the Cleveland Indians to attend dinner and a game as part of the #SocialSuite experience. As I already had tickets to that evening’s game, I declined the tickets, but attended the complimentary dinner with a guest. I was also invited to attend a press conference on the Progressive Field remodeling, but declined due to scheduling conflicts. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
