Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

The neighbors are coming home after quite the road trip, and to welcome everyone back, the team has announced that the new Virginia Country Kitchen stand at Section 113 will be debuting on Tuesday.
Both the Virginia Ham and the Old Dominion Chicken biscuits were teased at the April ballpark tour (and received the JDLand Taste Bud seal of approval), and there will also be mac-and-cheese, a housemade version of Cracker Jack called "Virginia Crunch," and a "Blue Ridge Bourbon and Tea" made with Filibuster Bourbon, peach schnapps (sold!), iced tea, and mint.
Also debuting on Tuesday will be the new home for the main team store, now located inside the gates in the ground floor of the eastern parking garage and nearly double the size of the old outlet facing N Street. No announcement yet as to what will be going into the old space, though it was said back in 2014 that the plan is "to convert the old space into a restaurant that fans will be able to enjoy throughout the year."
The Yankees will be the visitors on Tuesday and Wednesday (May 19 and 20), followed by a weekend set with the Phillies, which also includes the second Pups in the Park on Saturday, May 23. There will also be tote bags for the first 25,000 fans on Tuesday, a 10th anniversary poster for the first 10,000 fans on Sunday, and a number of presentations and ceremonies honoring the military as part of this Memorial Day weekend series.
And as if that's not enough, the team and MLB are partnering with the American Academy of Dermatology on Friday, May 22 for the "Play Sun Smart" initiative that is promoting skin cancer awareness. (As a freckle-faced fair-skinned lass of Irish descent, I fully endorse this project.)
The entire lineup of activities, ceremonies, and giveaways is available here.
And, the Capitol Riverfront BID has put together this roundup of gameday restaurant specials outside the ballpark, in case you need additional sustenance before or after the game.

I'll be looking forward to giving those biscuit sandwiches a shot to see if mass production yields the same positive results as the preseason VIP taste test (that's right JD, you're a VIP!). They sure look like they could be good.

Hey JD, I think Saturday is the 23rd, not the 25th:

"followed by a weekend set with the Phillies, which also includes the second Pups in the Park on Saturday, May 25. "

You people and your "dates" on a "calendar" and how they should "be correct"....

JD - thanks for the Nats info!
...as of noontime today, the new Team Store was still being set up inside...looks cavernous! Wish I'd gotten a Pudge Rodriguez jersey while I still could...

FWIW, The rice bowl with grilled salmon at BonChon is my favorite lunch now! Had it twice now...yum! Interestingly, it is not available on days when the Nats have a day game (1pm or 4:05pm).....


JD says: (5/19/15 10:14 PM)
Fed, or anyone who has seen: is there access to the new team store during the day? Have they rejiggered the fences?


conngs0 says: (5/21/15 8:19 AM)
Perhaps I just lucked out, but the line for this place during around the fifth inning last night was not long at all. I tried the chicken biscuit sandwich - I recommend it. I suspect it will be my go-to for when I don't have quite the appetite to tackle my usual chicken and ribs combo from Jammin' Island BBQ. I also tried the "Virginia Crunch". Despite not really being the type of food I usually prefer, it was pretty exceptional. I miraculously remembered it was only midweek and refrained from getting the "Blue Ridge Bourbon and Tea". Next time. Overall, it's a solid contribution to the Nats Park food lineup.

@jd: You can access the new team store during the day; the fences have been adjusted to allow for it.
