What’s a better summertime activity than going to a baseball game?
But while Mariners tickets are generally affordable during this “step-back” season, ballpark food is notoriously expensive. Beyond the standard hot dogs and peanuts, T-Mobile Park has added a variety of local options like Din Tai Fung, Li’l Woody’s and Paseo, but they won’t come cheap.
In the name of reporting, we sampled food around the park to find the best bang-for-your-buck food options. (Prices and menu items are subject to change.)
You can find 12-ounce cans of beer for $5 or $6 at select concession stands throughout the park, but you have to know where you’re going — these stands are sneaky and look similar to other beer stands. On the lower level, look for stands behind sections 105, 111, 132, 136 and 137.
Check the Value Beer section on the T-Mobile Park website for the full list of stadium sites. Miller High Life and Busch Light are $5, and Reuben’s Brews Crikey IPA and Bale Breaker Top Cutter IPA are $6.
The ‘Pen right next to the Mariners bullpen in center field also offers a happy hour from the time gates open until an hour before the game starts, where you can find $7 draft beers from any concession stand.
