Whatever you do, don’t mistake the Dodger Stadium parking lot for the golf course next to the Rose Bowl. You know, the place where people have fun before UCLA home football games, then they bring the festive atmosphere into the stadium making the whole experience better.
Dodger Stadium is not where one goes for pregame fun. These are the “highlights” of an official Dodger press release sent out yesterday.
Fans are not permitted to bring alcohol onto the premises, and the club will increase its signage and patrols in the parking lots to ensure continued enforcement of this policy. Violators are subject to ejection. The club’s concessions partner, Levy Restaurants, will reinforce their commitment toward responsible alcohol service. Alcohol sales stop in the 7th inning.
“These policies underscore our commitment to preserving the environment that families seek,” said Dennis Mannion, the Dodgers’ president and chief operating officer. “More than 99 percent of the fans act responsibly; we will be unrelenting in our pursuit of 100 percent.”
So don’t come early and have fun. Well, until next year or so when they build all those shops and restaurants in the walk around park area the Stadium, then please come early and spend your money.
Just don’t do it on your own, that’s not the Dodger way.
