9th at Virginia, Looking Southeast (see more)

The weather forecast isn't exactly optimal (hence my use of the photo from the holy-crap-it's-miserable-out Opening Day 2008), but nevertheless we have made it to April 7, when the Nats are scheduled to play their first home game of the 2016 season, vs the Marlins starting at 4:05 pm.
At this point everyone probably knows everything they want or need to know about the plans and festivities, but I'll still do a quick link-filled rundown, because, well, even though I'm coming down with the same cold that clobbered me on Opening Day 2008 (symmetry!), the guilt would be too incapacitating to not post something.
Here's:
* How to Get to the Ballpark: WaPo Version | DDOT Version

As for what will be going on outside the ballpark before and after the game, here's the current lineup:
* Bluejacket Opening Day Fest 2016, 12 to 4 pm, 4th and Tingey Streets, SE.
* Due South Opening Day Pop-Up Beer Garden at Arris, 11 am to 5 pm., 1331 4th St., SE.
* Opening Day at the Fairgrounds/Bullpen, gates open at 11 am, 1201 Half St., SE.
* The Budweiser Clydesdales Procession, starting on 1st Street at 2:15 pm.
(Note that 106.7 The Fan's planned Opening Day party at Canal Park is now apparently re-scheduled for April 22, thanks to the weather forecast.)
Speaking of the Fairgrounds/Bullpen, I see that they are billing this as their final season, which has been my assumption but it's interesting to see it in black and white.
If you haven't been following along, you may not know that this is because it's likely that by the 2017 season construction will be underway on JBG's 420-unit condo/residential building with 65,000 square feet of retail on the south end of that block, which will change the look of Half Street pretty substantially, as seen here. Hard to set up row upon row of cornhole when a massive hole is being dug!
I may continue to update this post if any additional links come in, and/or be doing a lot of retweeting on Twitter. Or I may be in bed. Or both. (Have laptop, will blog.)
Feel free to use the comments as a game thread, should you wish to discuss actual on-field goings-on.

Wait, wait... The weather is not good in DC now? It was 80 degrees and sunny in Palm Beach yesterday. We watched the Nats beat the Braves on TV last night. Go Nats!

in other news, the Coalition for Smarter growth will be having one of their excellent walking tours in our neighborhood on June 4. If you are interested in participating, RSVP here: link . I assume JD will be one of the presenters on this tour. Also, brunch at one of the local restaurants sounds like an excellent way to conclude this tour.


JD says: (4/7/16 8:59 AM)
I was asked, but I'm not going to be able to. Maybe next time!


202_cyclist says: (4/7/16 9:04 AM)
Perhaps you can just tag along, ask some questions and take a couple of photos.


JD says: (4/7/16 9:11 AM)
If I could do that, then I would have been able to be a presenter. :)


Jaybird says: (4/7/16 2:30 PM)
Raise your hand if you went on one of JD's first ones, maybe the first. I remember the after grub was at Five Guys.

Let's Go Nats!


JD says: (4/7/16 3:59 PM)
At least if I'm going to be deathly ill and barely able to move from the sofa, having Opening Day on the teevee ain't bad to have.


JD says: (4/10/16 11:08 AM)
When I complained I was deathly ill, I didn't yet know that it was both strep throat and an upper respiratory infection. I'm now on antibiotics, and my throat feels less insanely awful, but I'm still laid pretty low. Might be a few days before any new posts.

Get some rest. Hope you're feeling better real soon!!


NavyYardGuy says: (4/11/16 8:46 AM)
Feel better JD
