Legends Club Scraps
September 2, 2010 4:08 PM
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).

The sign reads:
Welcome to the Legends Club at Target Field. Each day we feature the very best that local Minnesotan and national specialty markets have to offer. The culinary team prepares your fare with a passion, capturing an exciting variety of flavors and textures for your dining pleasure. Enjoy your dining experience at the Carew atrium.

Over in the Puckett atrium, the fare is much more traditional, and a la carte, as somehow seems fitting.

This guy at the Puckett atrium chef stand caught me taking the picture and said I should stop back later because he was "just getting started." I still don't know what he meant.
As previously mentioned in the comments, another essential perk for the Legends Club seating is in-seat service. The wait staff looked pretty busy.

At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
Finally, I found this classic photo which was obviously placed by someone with a sense of humor.
Ketchup, mustard, relish, mustard, ketchup

"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

The back gates at Comerica park, like everything else, a bit overwrought.

How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!

The view through a construction "knothole".
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.

This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
Also warming things up are these planters.
Stairs down to Seventh Street now have the start of railings

Love the lighted, translucent panel
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)

Because of the scale, it's sometimes hard to realize that there are actual guys down there doing the tough work! Here they are getting ready to pour a footing.
Dramatic night-time lighting.
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
Three weeks ago this was a patch of scruffy trees. Now it's a patio. In case you were wondering, that's where I've been...
What can you see from up there? Some say not much.
The LRT station, sitting in a brand new urban canyon, takes shape.
Here's where the plaza will empty out around that skyway emergency exit tower at the corner of Second Avenue and Seventh Street.

More flowers, more pennants.
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
