I've seen people scan them, but I would print out a hardcopy as a backup.

according to Facebook, today is national IPA day. where can I get these delicious beers in nats park? I know DFH on the 300 level; sam adams has their IPA in their booth near Sec 115 I think, but I'm not a fan; theres also that one booth as you head toward the president club that has DC Brau and others. anywhere else?

200s by the 1st base ramps also has a District Brews taps, and of course the Red Porch has 60 Minute and a few others.

The District Drafts beer stands are in a few places around Nats Park.  There is one behind section 118.  But these stands have 3-4 taps.  The best selection I've found is in the Red Porch, with 6 or 7 taps.

Yeah, the official word is that the scanners there don't support scanning smartphone tickets, but it apparently does work. Better safe than sorry, though.

To me, this is one of the last remaining "needs" for ticket holders. Printing out tickets runs up the toner cartridge costs!

Anyone else send a check to the dream foundation with a Scherzer baseball card and a self addressed stamped envelope expecting to get an autographed card in return?

I sent my check in mid-May, the Dream Foundation cashed my check in early August but I still haven't seen an autographed card....

Worked for me tonight, thing I learned was to size the bar codes like they appear on the printed tix, too big doesn't work.

Something I've long been wondering about: Are those rows of ledges in front of the Red Loft and above the batter's eye first come, first serve, or do they need to be reserved? I've noticed that the ones above the batter's eye often appear to be mostly unoccupied.

The ones on the Red Loft are first come first served, those above the batters eye are occasionally reserved for Miller Lite Parties from time-to-time.

In the original plans for the ball park, there were supposed to be seats above the batters eye, they never put them in, space was too tight.
In 2008, when the park opened, there were 4 rows of seats in front of the loft - they took one row out by the all star break and took them all out in 2009 - miserable place to have seats, everyone treated it like part of the bar.

Lot B is the left field parking Garage.  No let turn off of South Capital alloed...you can turn on M and wind your way around, or go down 3 blocks and turn around and head back north at the concrete batch plant.

Diamond Club opens 1.5 hours before first pitch...the same time they let everyone into the main area of the Park.

No need to wind around, coming from 395 down South Cap, take the right exit to make the left on M, then take the first right on Van, which takes you directly to the B garage entrance.

No...the main seating areas open 1.5 hours before game time.  The center field gate opens 2.5 hours early, yes, but that does not get you access to most of the seats nor the Diamond Club.

So take the South Capitol St exit from 395?

Van?

Yes, 395 to South Cap, Van is the first right after turning on M, it goes directly from M to the B garage.

sounds like Van should be your standard decision, but that often causes problems.
