Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.

Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
Ullger warms up.

Hot dawgs! Getcher hot dawgs!

Our host points to the Puckett Atrium on the diagram.

Saints between innings
Lots of people are doing it.
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.

Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
Final pieces arrive
B ramp improvements are finally becoming usable. The doors lead to the plaza beneath the skyway steps.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).

The action drew everybody to the top step. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
The beautiful Promenade has become a sea of temporary barricades. (Smoker's Row outside the unnumbered gate)
LRT station has appeared.
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.

A closer look at the bridge and walls. You can see where the tracks will be laid.
A truck is leaving the HERC plant. Here you can see the proximity to the promenade. For the record, the truck drove right by me and I smelled nothing...
