Your Thoughts on Miller Park

'Duk over at The Big League Stew is running a series about the good times to be had at ballparks around the bigs. Even though he is from Illinois, I know he looks favorably upon Miller Park, if for only being able to stop at Bobby Nelson's Sausage Haus in Kenosha and picking up some good eats to grill up.

So, If you have a take on Miller Park, write something up and send along to the Stew at: Tell 'em Chuckie Hacks sent ya.

From The Big League Stew:

There is only one rule for the BBR and it's that there's no such thing as too much information. If you recommend a local bar near Wrigley Field, shoot me a link. If you talk about the Roberto Clemente statue at PNC Park, don't be afraid to attach a picture. Be funny in your descriptions. Be creative. Tell us what each thing means to you. Tell us a personal story about it.
(By the way, if you've visited a ballpark in another town and have a recommendation for something you happened upon, don't be afraid to give up the info, either.)

So, to recap, we're looking for your help with the following categories — and anything else, really:
What's the best way to get there? (Car, public transportation, kayak, etc.)
What are the best spots to hit before or after the game? (Bars, restaurants, local attractions, museums)
What's the best concession stand item in the park? Why? (Don't be afraid to release your inner food critic. What makes the hot dog rule over the pizza?)
Where's the best place to sit? (Let us know about good deals, most bang for buck, etc.)
What's the one thing you like about the park more than anything else? What makes it feel like home to you? What makes you feel like it's the best place in the bigs to catch a game? (It's an open-ended question, but it's designed that way ... tell us what you really think.)

Send all submissions to 'Duk at Include the "BBR" and the name of your ballpark in the subject line. Also include your name, hometown and blog address (if applicable). All entries, photos and links may be used in a future Big Ballpark Review post.
