Albuquerque Isotopes Home Opener

I haven't been to a big baseball game in Albuquerque since the Dukes were still stepping up to the plate well over a decade ago. So I took the chance tonight to watch the home opener of the Albuquerque Isotopes and check out their stadium for the first time. I was really impressed with Isotopes Park and the night was really entertaining overall. To top it off, the Isotopes busted out a 7-4 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers.

Foul ball!

And another big bonus to any ballpark visit is the food. I chose to skip the hot dogs and nachos and head straight for a slightly more exotic fare. I walked over to the Island Noodles booth, where they were serving up some Wok Fired Soba Noodles.

It was such a tasty alternative to your standard ballpark food. I'd definitely recommend it next time you're at the park. I also spotted a Dion's Pizza. I just might have to order up a slice of green chile and sausage next time I make my way to Isotopes Park. And maybe I'll see you there.
