An appetizer station filled with finger foods included platters of sushi (nothing too out there, but decent spicy tuna and California rolls), nachos to top with chicken or pork barbecue, and Asian-style chicken lettuce wraps—in addition to bowls brimming with ballpark peanuts and Cracker Jack. Never fear, traditionalists.
The sleek-looking suites, complete with modern kitchens and sparkling bathrooms, were open for viewing and looked ready to go for opening day. Walking through the concourses to get to the Stars and Stripes club was another story, though. With a little more than a week until the Nats take on the Braves next Sunday, construction workers and equipment were everywhere. Even after suite holders finished their plastic flutes of Champagne and exited the park, guys in hardhats were still out working diligently to get the place ready for game time.
