    OT: giants tonight - how early?

    First place.... woot-woot. Even my daughter is going to the game tonight at 7:15.

    Questions:

    It's Buster Posey t-shirt day for the first 20,000 fans. How early do I need to get there to get that shirt?

    Is there an entrance that's less busy than the other?

    Where do I park exactly? How much?

    Who else is going to be there?

    Is the $9 beer Belgian?

    I park at Reds Java House. It's a half mile or so from the ballpark. I think it costs 15 or 20. You'll have to show up by at least 6 to get a shirt. Go through the rear gate by the marina. I don't remember the name but it's opposite from Willie Mays gate.

    Have fun. Go Giants!

    Never underestimate what people will do to get free shiz. From 5 to 6 you should be ok. Closer to 5 I'd say definitely. There will probably be big lines by 6:00ish.

    I usually just park on Townsend between 2nd and 3rd. There are a ton of lots around there. $25. You can get $20 a couple blocks away in any direction. Sometimes you can get lucky with street parking too.

    They don't mess around with beers at AT&T. $9 will get you an Anchor Steam or something tasty for sure.

    Sheboygan Bratwursts win the AT&T food contest, hands down! Stand is on the 3rd base/Bleachers corner of the park. Go Giants!

    Weeknight games, I usually do street parking near the Flower Mart/Performance Bike shop. You're okay from 6 pm and on. You should be fine an hour early for a T-Shirt. Bobbleheads, on the other hand, are effin crazy. Just go through the main gate. Even if the lines seem longer, they have more boxes stocked at the main gate.

    Buy beer at Safeway and have your daughter sneak it in.

    If you get there early enough to get a free shirt you will get there in plenty of time to find some free parking. I like to park over by the UCSF Mission Bay area. Its a 10-15min walk.

    They have decent beer, but you're better off sneaking some in.

    Additionally, as it may seem to be damp and cold tonight, do bundle up! It's already drizzling all morning at downtown SF today!

    Thanks for the tips. The parking lot at Townsend was golden!!!

    4 tickets - free!
    4 Buster Posey t-shirts worth $35 each - free!
    1 Gilroy Garlic Fries - Toxic
    3 of my fine smuggled beers confiscated - fail
    9 kids having a ball - priceless.

    $8 beers gets you an ice cold frothy Bud Light at the blue collar stadium of the Athletics in Oakland. Anchor Steam? Get out of here, that is hot!
