Default Season Ticket Holder event tonight - who's going?

I'm looking forward to free beer and food.

I RSVP'd, but am leaning against going. It's a nice event. I won a Jeff Keppinger autographed bat last year.

I went to the one that they had last week. Good time, and good food, only stayed for about 2 hours though. Not to Change the topic, but did anyone else get the email for the free patio party and free game tickets for the 28th? They must be really hurting this year, because I have been a STH for 8 years, and have never received free tickets from the sox before.

Also off topic - but I got a voicemail from the Sox yesterday saying they saw I bought tickets this year (I used the free voucher for surveys) asking if I was planning on coming back this year and how my experience was.

Hey Soxfan21: The Sox are doing this as a NEW incentive program based on your Season Ticket Holder status (8 Years). It is another way to reward for being a valued Season Ticket Holder that was implemented this season.

Deadmoney: Did you give them a ring back? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated! Or, if you would like to leave it here, it can be passed along.

Welcome NightTrain. You should get some interesting feedback from WSI'ers.

Not to veer completely off topic, but Night Train is a good follow on twitter for Sox and ballpark related news.

I like the sound of that. I'll be keeping an eye out.

Was this the one at Bar and Grill? How was the food distribution handled? I was at the first one and they just laid the food out as a "come and get it" kinda thing. Basically, if you weren't one of the first 10 people in line, or standing IN line when a new tray came out, you got nothing. Everybody was doubling up so they wouldn't have to wait in line again. My ticket rep and someone from bar and grill said they would "make adjustments". I was invited to last week's too but was so turned off by the first one I that I skipped it.

This time they had the servers go through the room with platters like a cocktail hour. While some corners of the room got better service than others, it worked out well enough. Barely a wait at the bar any time I got beers.

No wait for beer. Not long for food either. They did their best, even with the folks taking more than a couple of items. No napkins though, which is kinda hard when you eat those maple wings.

I did watch a lady get 4 different mixed drinks and not tip a cent. That is pretty sad. These folks aren't getting paid much, drop a dollar per round when it's an open bar.

Taking a few items is one thing. Cleaning out the entire buffet 10 people in is obnoxious. Not as bad as the one grinder bash I went to where a guy brought a hefty bag with him and tried to take 2 trays of ribs home. Ticket rep actually chased him so he wouldn't get away with it. Have some decorum folks, we'd all like to sample the food.

Glad to see it was improved.
