There had been hopes (and rumors
) that the old Team Store space at Half and N Streets at Nats Park
would become a restaurant of some sort, but the team is now marketing the spot as "Centerfield Social
," where for a $100 a person with a minimum of 100 guests you can "book Nationals Park's newest pregame gathering spot right inside the gates."
Reserving the space also apparently gets you an "all-inclusive food and beverage package, including beer and wine, starting 2 hours before game time," along with "Infield Box seating close to the action."
(Though I imagine if someday some restaurant operator somewhere reallyreallyreally wanted that space....)
