Though this news is actually a few weeks old, I thought it was worth a mention. Since September 4, there has been a gluten-free concession stand at Turner Field. The stand, which sits behind section 106, offers up an impressively long list of items. The run down of available options is as follows: all-beef franks, sirloin beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, popcorn, brownies, cookies, soda, and water. For those of you looking to down a few brews, there is gluten-free Redbridge beer. ARAMARK, despite having one of the worst company names possible, is the sole provider of eat and drink goods at the home of the Braves. So they deserve some credit for making this happen.
Word around the campfire is that there is an an attempt to have an unofficial gluten-free fan night. On October 19th, the local gluten-free dinner club plans to head down to Turner Field as a celebration of their new found dining option. Full details for the planned excursion can be found at the group’s Meetup.com page. Though there is only one commit as of now, it seems that most everyone of the group’s meet-ups draw two-dozen or more folks. I’m sure you can dig up more information by checking out Tiffany Janes on twitter and on her blog. [Janes is the group organizer.]
