Here's a quick addendum to the recent look at the Legends Club.
I was a little unclear on what the food at the atrium chef stands really was. But I had a chance to get some detailed info the other night.
The Carew atrium features the one-pass buffet for $19.95. It's not exactly your typical ballpark food, but I bet it's good (if you're into that kind of thing).

"You talk about the magic, the aura, but what really makes a stadium is the fans. Concrete doesn't talk back to you. Chairs don't talk back to you. It's the people who are there, day in, day out, that makes the place magic."
– Bernie Williams

This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.

They could not help the Twins on this night.
