Ahh! I absolutely loved Red Sox Opening Day! What a cool experience! :mrgreen: I’m so glad that my husband decided to take me! 😉

I showed my Boston spirit by wearing my favorite Red Sox hat.

Before heading to the game, Mal and I grabbed a quick dinner at Sol Azteca, a Mexican restaurant located right down the street from Fenway Park.

Dinner started with complimentary chips and salsa.

I loved the salsa at Sol Azteca. It was incredibly fresh and flavorful, so (not surprisingly) it was really tough to control myself, but I didn’t overdo it either.

Mal is always a fun dinner date! 😆

I was in the mood for Mexican food, but I wanted to try something new and different. I ended up ordering the Nopalitos en Salsa Verda, which was cactus cooked in green sauce with tortilla strips and cheese.

The meal sounded really interesting and potentially delicious, but I wasn’t a fan of it. I guess I made a bad menu choice. 😕

The cactus sort of reminded of pickled green beans and the tortilla strips were totally soggy. It was not at all what I expected. Boo.

I ended up eating all of the cheese off of the top with tortilla chips. It wasn’t the best meal, but it was fairly satisfying. Thankfully, Mal shared some of his rice and refried beans with me, too.

After dinner, it was time to head to the game! 😀

I loved seeing the crowd of people on Yawkey Way this evening. Everyone seemed so upbeat and excited for Opening Day– and, of course, Red Sox = summer to me! 😉

The opening ceremonies were awesome! I’ve never seen anything like it.

As the Red Sox players were introduced, they walked down a red carpet onto the field.

Pedro Martinez threw out the first pitch, which was a really neat surprise for Red Sox fans. Also in attendance were 91-year-old Johnny Pesky, Steven Tyler, who sang God Bless America, and Neil Diamond, who sang Sweet Caroline. So many celebrities!

Midway through the game, Mal and I shared a bag of Cracker Jacks. Holy yum! I forgot how much I like Cracker Jacks. I already added them to my grocery list for this coming week.

The game went soooooo late tonight, but the Red Sox were able to pull off a win! YAY!!! What a great way to begin the season! :mrgreen:

Time for BED!

  1. Just catching up on your blog from the weekend! Sounds like a great night. Way to go for trying something new and different – I can’t imagine cactus being good! I do love Cracker Jacks though. I haven’t had them in ages! It is so fun when the spring/summer traditions come out of hiding 🙂

  2. Opening Day in Detroit is always on a weekday, 1pm game so “festivities” start early in the morning (7-8am). It’s typically a crazy day and many people don’t even remember the game. I think Boston’s opening day sounds much more fun!!
