There is still some things in flux, but there are a few things that have been decided for sure.

Concession stand 141 (I don't remember what it was) is being converted to a bar, and will carry Surly, I believe Fulton, and other craft beers. Most of the beers offered there will not be available anywhere else in the stadium (that means the surly cart is going away, and no more fulton in Townball Tavern)

There will be a few more walleye food items, and all walleye in the stadium will now be shipped fresh to Target Field, instead of that iffy frozen stuff they've used before.

Fried Pickles will be available in many more locations, including townball tavern.

Milkshakes will be available in Hrbeks and Townball Tavern. Midway through the season they will assess their popularity, and at that time they may consider adding alcoholic milkshakes to the menu.

There will now be "skinny" mojitios available in Hrbeks and Townball Tavern, as well as several other new speciality drinks.

Finally, Townball Tavern will now be officially sponsored by Summit. It's unclear if the name will change, but they will have several types of Summit on tap at all times, as well as several food items made with summit. Unfortunately, this also means that Fulton (and possibly a few other varieties of beer) are being booted out of that bar. They are still hammering out the final details, so look for an official announcement sometime in the beginning of March


Haven't heard anything about getting rid of the dance-off or any other programming stuff yet, but I'll let you know if I do.

Thumbs up for the all tobacco ban. Should make for a more pleasant experience (eg no more nicotine haze to fog the view or chew spats to slip on).

This may be the most important thread on the forum. :)

Alcoholic milkshakes? Hope they make some with Bailey's.

Okay guys, I think I know where all of the offseason payroll money went. Strangely, I feel okay with this.

I attended my first Target Field game last summer. Moar Walleye plz. The fried pickles OTOH I could live without. I don't remember what beer I had but additional tasty ones are always desirable. As for the milkshakes from Hrbeks, will they be available in quantities smaller than a gallon?

Limiting where I can get good beer to one location? Is that what is happening to craft beer? Another reason not to go.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :) Also, I am NOT trying to convince anyone I am correct, I'm just talking here, not arguing.

Surly in 141 and Summit at Townhall tavern by the train station. You will never have to walk more than 1/4 way around to get a good beer.

Fair enough, I am not a big Summit fan. Lift Bridge, Fulton, Indeed, the list is long of great MN craft beers.

Fried pickles are awesome. But 8 of them for 6 bucks? I'll pass.

Thank God I live in SE Wisconsin, Brewers don't have that policy, and the MILB teams don't have that law in place

Great info here, the fresh Walleye and Summit news is awesome but the giant alcoholic milkshakes are frightening me.

The tobacco ban is overdue.

Hey.....I'll gladly get hosed for a Tony O's sammich. But if you're going to hose me at least give me some quantity. My wife and I were so excited to hear those would be at the games and then our pickles were soggy and massively overpriced. That was a sad day.

Just use snus for gamedays. It's enough nicotine to keep away the cravings, but you don't have to spit. Impossible to spot/stop.

Pretty solid sounding changes overall.

Now they just need to make cheese curds available more places so I don't have to walk to the outfield everytime.
