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

They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.

This is a great spot for casually watching the game.

Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
Looking back toward First Avenue
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
This design has a rather generic quality to it, but they appear to have considered the B garage. Though it isn't part of the model, they've clearly left room for it.
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
Looking through the transit hub
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.

This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.

Here's a closer look.

Here's the barricade in context at the end of the walkway
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
