    Sounds like a neat event! Hopefully, they'll get a huge turnout and decide to feature gluten-free items on a regular basis. I'm pretty sure the Washington Nationals have a vendor who has several gluten-free items … if I recall correctly, gluten-free soft pretzels and beer. Have you ever been, Diane?

      Shirley- I've not been to a Nats game in some time. They may have some gluten free items but I'm not sure. There are many parks that are finally getting on this band wagon. If I ever get the gumption, I'm going to check in with all of them to see who's GF friendly and who is not. Of course just offering the food doesn't mean it's actually going to be GF when you eat it.
