As you’ve probably already noted, I am a huge Chicago Cubs fan. I bought my tickets and I was ready to go to the Cubs/Rockies game in Denver, all that was left was to start singing “take me out to the ballgame”!
The drive over wasn’t too bad and I stopped in Frisco for lunch. They have a Smiling Moose Deli and I absolutely love their gluten-free sandwich choices. The server was very good at letting me know which sandwiches could be made gluten-free and I proceeded to order the “dude ranch” which has turkey, bacon, avocado and a bunch of other stuff. It was amazing!
Once I got to Denver, it was time to hit the ball park! It had been raining most of the day, even a huge storm with up to baseball sized hail! There was hail on the side of the road and at first I thought they were snowdrifts. At the ballpark, I headed straight for the gluten-free concession stand. Aramark has done a fantastic job of making sure that there are gluten-free options at the ballparks that they take care of. I ordered a hotdog (with peppers), chips, and an Angry Orchard hard cider. I was super impressed when somebody came over with a foot-long hotdog from a “regular” stand and was going to put ketchup on it. The gal in the concession stand stopped him and told him that the condiments within their area or for gluten-free only. That is fantastic! They really do care about gluten-free eaters. I went back later for an Udi’s chocolate chip cookie. It was good as well but not sure that it was worth the $3.25. Much to my dismay, the game got rained out.
Since I was in Denver, I decided to find the nearest Snooze. Snooze is an eatery that is amazing for breakfast! I ordered an omelette (jalapeño, jack cheese and sausage), their hashbrowns, and a gluten-free chocolate chip pancake. It is well worth the time and the calories!
