Ladies Night--June 4th, 2009
While Randy Johnson was attempting to clinch his 300th Career Victory on the field at Nationals Park, nearly 1000 ladies, and some men, were on the Rooftop Party Deck of Garage B attending Ladies Night. Held at least once per year by Our Washington Nationals beginning in 2007 at RFK Stadium, Ladies Night has grown into one of DC's Baseball Team's biggest attractions. Yesterday's Happy Hour--scheduled for 4:30PM went on as planned despite the rain and the subsequent forced doubleheader between Washington and The San Francisco Giants--beginning at the same time.
Although some were torn over watching History over Fun, there was a way to do both. Like watching from a rooftop above and behind Wrigley Field in North Chicago, The Rooftop Party Deck provides a wonderful overview of Nationals Park and the playing field. Close enough to actually hear the crack of the bat. It didn't take long for The African Queen and many attendees to take advantage of both attractions.
Watch the baseball game.
Attempt to ride a mechanical bull.
Then get a message.
Eat some Hard Times Cafe Chili Nachos.
Then get your finger nails polished.
Chow down on some finger foods.
Wash it down with some wine, beer, soft drinks or Honest Ade Teas.
While chatting and enjoying some good times with friends.
As usual--Dwayne Herndon and his staff from Noah's Pretzels were on top Garage B handing out salted and cinnamon Curly "W" Pretzels.
Jewelry, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Curly "W" Ties and "Get Your Green On" Reusable Tote Bags from The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation--some of the shopping items available for purchase.
The mechanical bull was a fundraiser for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. $10 donations asked to test your endurance riding the saddle.
Although Sohna and some of the other ladies she talked to felt the music played by Fresh 94.7FM was flat and uninspiring--not good dance music to hop to. In fact, when requests were made for specific songs, the DJ didn't respond favorably to their choices of music.
The Second & Final Ladies Night of 2009 will take place on Thursday, August 20th when The Colorado Rockies visit Nationals Park.
