Are things that bad that we're talking about next season already? Well, here's one thing for sure in the Dodgers' 50th anniversary season in Los Angeles which the organization just announced today: The Field level will sport remodeled and expanded concession stands and restrooms.
The over-$60 million renovation will have state-of-the-art ergonomically-designed kitchens in the concession stands which would HOPEFULLY speed up food transactions and best of all: all field level concession stands will have grilled Dodger Dogs. The restrooms will reportedly sport waterless urinals, which management says will save up to 2.4 million gallons each year in the field level alone. Whether the notorious troughs will remain, who knows. The restrooms will also have hand dryers.
There will also be new club seating for season ticket holders in the Field level on the first and third base sides, which include buffet dining, a fuill-service bar and private restrooms.
Renovations will also include a high-tech cooling system for The Stadium which consists of a centralized chilled-water system which is designed to be integrated with the concession kitchens.
What about all us Loge, Reserve and Top Deck folks? Guess we'll have to wait till the next off-season.
Speaking of which, the Militant will be in Top Deck tonight...GO BLUE!
