Spring is finally here in St. Louis just when I was beginning to think it was never going to happen! I’m in love with warm weather and leaves on the trees. There is honestly nothing better than the first weekend it really feels like Spring.
In St. Louis, Spring means the return of everyone’s favorite, Cardinals Baseball. I grew up outside of St. Louis in a tiny town in Illinois that was decidedly a Cardinals town. Summer is my dad doing whatever dads do outside all day with Mike Shannon on the radio at full volume. I can remember driving 2 hours into the city to go to games with my parents. I forced them to take me to beanie baby night. I was lucky enough to be at game 7 of the World Series in 2011. And it’s still the only place I can get Dippin’ Dots these days.
We’re giving away 4 tickets to the Bud Deck at Ballpark Village, the winner gets to choose from a selection of dates. We’re also giving away a $100 gift card to the Bud Shop and a $50 Ballpark Village gift card you can use anywhere at Ballpark Village.
The Bud Deck is my new favorite way to watch Cardinals games because there are fewer people and better bathrooms. It’s a fun patio on the third floor of the Budweiser Brew House. You have to have a ticket to get up there, but tickets are a fraction of the cost of going to the stadium. Which if you’re like me and really just want to talk and eat food and cheer every once in a while, it’s perfect! You don’t have to crawl over other people to use the bathroom 700 times (is this just me?) because they have nice, private bathrooms and no assigned seats. You can snag a table or sit on a comfy couch and watch the game.
If you are in need of some new Cardinals gear the Bud Shop is full of really great stuff. They have lots of options for women which I always find to be such a challenge. And you know why it’s so good, it’s curated by Lusso, a super cute boutique right in my neighborhood Clayton! They have lots of good stuff from Arch Apparel and exclusive Anheuser-Busch items. A lot of the stuff you find here, you can’t find anywhere else! All the Cardinals gear Gwen and I are wearing is straight from the Bud Shop!
