5. Busch Stadium– St. Louis Cardinals (June 1st & 2nd, 2020)
It’s a short two-game series for the Jays in St. Louis, and this one is a bit of a hike from Toronto if you’re driving, but Busch Stadium is a beautiful place to watch a baseball game. You get a stunning view of the St. Louis skyline, as well as the famous arch that has come to be associated with the city.
St. Louis isn’t a city that the Blue Jays visit very often, so you should take advantage of this opportunity because they likely won’t be back for at least a few years. If this was a longer series and on a weekend it would probably rank higher, but this is still a ballpark worth checking out next season.
Food to try: Broadway BBQ
You can’t go to Missouri and not eat the BBQ, and luckily; there are a ton of great options right inside the stadium. Broadway BBQ is supposed to be the best, and they serve up staples like pulled pork, beef brisket, and turkey legs.
Local beer to try: 2nd Shift Brewing’s Little Big Hop
If you’re a fan of IPA’s this is a good choice for something low in ABV at just 4.9%.
If you prefer to stick to the domestic stuff you can always get the beer that the stadium is named after. A 12 oz. can of Busch will cost you $5, and before each game, you can get a 16 oz. pour on draft for $5.
