On Thursday, we had tickets to the Cardinals/Astros game. But not just any tickets. We had tickets to the Redbird Club.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Redbird Club, here’s how it works. When you purchase your ticket, (the seats are really good–on the second deck, and the seats are cushioned), you also gain access to an indoor area of the Stadium. In the Club you can purchase all sorts of food–typical ballpark fare such as hot dogs, brats, and nachos, as well as fancier options, such as stir-fry, hand-carved sandwiches, and gourmet cupcakes–there’s even a bar in there! You have to love any club that requires a directory!
My favorite part was the nacho bar–it was so much fun getting to choose what I wanted on my nachos, (I had the pulled pork).
This is also the part of the ballpark with the wallpaper designed after one of the Cardinals owner’s personal baseball card collection.
It was nice to have the option of going inside for a while, and watching the game on one of the many big-screen TVs while cooling off. They even had couches to sit on, just like at home. It’s not the same as sitting outside and watching, but on a day where the temperature at the start of the game was 97 degrees, it was quite a welcome relief!
On the way up to the Redbird Club, Turkey finally got to see on of the arches left from the All-Star game in St. Louis in 2009. He was very excited to finally see one in person!
It was a really fun way to see the game, even if it was one of the hottest days of the year, and the Cardinals didn’t win.

I️ was told free food and drink.
Why is the face value $143?
You do have to pay for food and drink…the tickets allow you into an exclusive (air-conditioned!) area. It’s not for everybody, but for a special night out, it’s nice to be able to come in from the heat and take a break in one of the comfy seating areas. I do find the price you quoted unusual, though…I don’t think we ever paid more than $40 or $50 for our tickets.
