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:

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

This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.

The media had some beautiful foliage to use as a background.

Would you have spotted that Twin? When you were five years old?
Hit gap, win suit!
Here's an idea of what these Loge Boxes are all about. That guy is a waiter with no fans to serve. They seemed to have one server for about every four boxes.

This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.

This is where the main ticket office will be.
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
That warning sign doesn't mention anything about the potential for bludgeoning or limb removal by the revolving doors...
The Target Center rooftop patio. Hardly glamorous, but a great view of the ballpark.
