Anybody going to this?    It’s this Saturday.   I have a prior commitment and can’t go.    

Maybe.   I know either Saturday or Sunday I'll be getting together with my sister and brother-in-law for lunch or dinner, and a movie.   That gets scheduled first.   If it doesn't conflict, then I'll probably go.

Could be some showers on Saturday,at least weather for now near 50.

 

Here are some of the local food trucks:

               Pablo's Toc O's

    • Jimmy's Famous Seafood
    • Dough Boy Fresh Pretzel Company
    • Green Bowl
    • Dunkin'
    • Boog's BBQ
    •  
  • Vendors:
    • Ama Scents
    • Baltimore Humane Society
    • WhitePaws RunMitts
    • Natasha's Just Brittle
    • Sippin' Pretty Designs
    • Krystle Kollection
    • FuzzyMug
    • Zinnia Virgo Soaps
    • DramaMama Book Shop
    • ScentCity Candles
    • Flowers & Fancies
    • Mount Royal Soap Co.

     

    But it is a special conversation. 😀

    Executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias, assistant Sig Mejdal and manager Brandon Hyde will participate in a “special conversation,” per the team’s press release. MASN’s Rob Long will serve as emcee.

    Birdland Members who renewed their season tickets for the 2020 season may attend for free and will be granted access to exclusive opportunities at the event that haven’t been announced.

    Not sure if anything has been announced yet. Heard they would send a ticket to Birdland Members digitally to get in for free .

    We’ll be sending digital tickets to our BIrdland Members through the Ballpark App.

     

    I am not sure they will do much before Spring Training since February 12 is the reporting date. Would have to put out a press release soon if they are doing anything in January.  Also the last spring game is on a Monday and then open on a Thursday, so not sure they would do an event at night during the week with school open.

    Also i guess no Navy game at the Naval Academy again even though they promised one last year. I guess could do one Tuesday or Wednesday but does not look likely. Lamar Jackson should throw out the first pitch on Opening Day,

I guess they could move it inside the stadium if it rains.  Probably don't want the expense of hiring security for the stadium.    If the weather is nice I will go to this and then visit the Christmas Village at the harbor.  Not worth going to in the rain.  But I guess that is what happens when they are too cheap to pay for the convention center and they decide to have their one event outside in December.  It would be only fitting that it gets rained out. 

I wonder why so few of you want to go to this.   Your chance to hear Elias call the Astro's issues a "PR problem" and how the "Orioles need to field a minor league quality team to make the playoffs in the tough AL East".

I'm not denying the cheapness, but anything inside a convention center is about as interesting to me as attending a committee meeting on committees. Do they keep convention centers as sweltering hot in the winter as they are frigid in the summer? Outdoor events are fun.....or they make you hard like Cal Sr. Either way they are better. The O's should just have a double booth at the Christmas Village.

Looks like rainy weather on Satuday till about 4 PM.Not as much expected as today.Elias analytics say you might need an umbrella or hold the Rob Long interview inside Dempsey's.They like the way Santa keeps the reindeer cost efficient. Also that the reindeer are international picks. Santa has a excellent scouting department that the Orioles hope to match.But Krumpus tried to steal the toys with a hidden camera. Santa's elves are looking into disciplanary action.Elias said he can't talk about it since it is an ongoing investigation.

The German village is nice but expensive and kinda boring and "the same" every year.

If the city approached the O's to have something there I feel like it would be mutually beneficial. Good idea.

And this is why you don’t hold an outdoor event for thousands (dozens?) of people in mid-December in Baltimore.   At least the concourse has a roof, and they’re serving hot chocolate.

Outdoor events are frequently fun.  I don’t think going to an event in pouring rain with temperatures in the 40s with a small child is going to be fun.  I am going to skip it unless a weather change happens quickly.

Heading over in a few minutes. Light rain off and on for the next couple hours, and it isn't too cold out so it shouldn't be bad.

Have fun. Updates on the hour? 😀

I see on Orioles Facebook page people are selling reduced tickets. What is that ? The tickets are $5.00 or a winter coat that you might have in the closet. How much can you make on four tickets at a reduced price? $8.00? $6.00? $10.00?

Well I doubt they sell them with weather as bad as it is.
