Best Minor-League Experience

Tasty Thursday

True story: Watching the Mariners at Safeco Field will cost your family hundreds of dollars, and none of that money will guarantee Dustin Ackley and co. will notch more than three hits and two runs. Down in T-Town, on the other hand, sits newly remodeled Cheney Stadium, the Tacoma Rainiers, and perhaps the best deal in the area: Tasty Thursday. Hot dogs for a dollar. Beer for two dollars on the appropriately named Tasty Terrace. And all the old-school charm that goes along with the unadulterated minor-league game. Plus, it's the Pacific Coast League, so you'll probably see 20 runs scored. And you'll be sitting close enough to heckle Justin Smoak in the dugout . . . or [insert currently struggling Mariner here] once he gets sent down. MATT DRISCOLL Cheney Stadium, 2502 S.
