Gluten Free Sporting Venues

Last night we enjoyed a night out with extended family to attend the Orioles/Red Sox game at Camden Yards in Baltimore. We are are Sox fans, and let me tell you, we weren't the only ones there! And fortunately, unlike the night before, it was a good night to be a Sox fan! The only thing as good as watching the Sox defeat the Orioles 7-3 (sorry, O's fans!) was having an all-around good gluten free dining experience.

They handed us a "Gluten-Free Options" listing, which details the choices for gluten free fare at various places around the ballpark.
