The Red Sox tonight issued a press release detailing a few small Fenway Park improvements in advance of this weekend's Red Sox-Yankees series. The following information comes direct from the Red Sox:
THE BLEACHER BAR: The newest addition to Fenway Park is the new Lyons Group establishment The Bleacher Bar. Located outside the Fenway Park gates and open to everyone, the Lyons Group's official grand opening of The Bleacher Bar will be on Friday, July 25 at 5:30 p.m. The Bleacher Bar, open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, contains artifacts from around Fenway and features a grand view of the ballpark from center field.
LEFT FIELD DECK: Beginning on July 25, the left field deck will be open to all ticketed fans and will be offering a vast array of Coca-Cola products, beers from around the world, items hot off the grill, and cherry and blue raspberry slush. The left field deck is located immediately below the Coca-Cola Corner, which debuted in April and can be accessed from the stairs and elevator off of the Gate E Concourse.
NEW CONCESSION ITEMS: The second half of the season will also feature an expanded selection of Boar's Head deli sandwiches, seasonal fruit offerings including fresh watermelon and pineapple, and ice cold fresh fruit smoothies, all of which will be available for sale in the big concourse. Dunkin Donuts iced coffee and Nestea iced tea will now be vended throughout the seating areas at Fenway and value meals will now be available at all concession stands that feature combos such as a hamburger, fries, and a soda or a hot dog, drink, and cotton candy as a kids meal. Concourse entertainment has been enhanced by the addition of a caricature artist and local bluegrass, rock, and Motown bands in addition to existing face-painters, magicians, and balloon artists. The Rawlings Making the Game booth now resides on Yawkey Way adjacent to Gate A and features personalized items such as bats and baseballs for purchase in addition to demonstrations on how both are made.
