First Cardinals Game of the Season

I'm currently visiting my hometown - McLean, VA. But, I'm still behind on posting so back to Illinois we go... enjoy!
On Wednesday night, the Murphy guys and I headed to downtown St. Louis to attend our first Cardinals game of the season. We left town around 4:30pm and stopped at St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights, IL for dinner. Brandon spotted Five Guys and we ate some delicious burgers. We didn't know the chain had made it this far west. This location just opened in September.

The other reason we stopped here was to park and ride the Redbird Express to the stadium. The ticket was $5 for a round-trip. The last time I went to the stadium we parked at the casino and took the subway to the field.

Bumpy ride
We got to the park just in time to hear the national anthem as we passed through the entrance gates at 7pm.

Check out the view from our seats:

The Cards won against the Houston Astros 5-1  and we got to see some fireworks!
