There is so much happening at Nationals Park this week and plenty of good reasons to ignore the rainy forecast. But, in case you need it, here is the Nats' hotline for inclement weather: 202-675-NATS, Option 5.
Now for the good stuff...
Tuesday is T-Shirt Tuesday, with a special design featuring Stephen Strasburg. The first 10,000 fans will get a t-shirt courtesy of tickets.com.
On Wednesday, the Nationals celebrate Craft Beer Week with a Leinenkugel pregame beer sampling at the Miller Light Scoreboard Walk. For $22, fans receive a Scoreboard Pavilion seat and a voucher for four complimentary Leinenkugel beer samples from 4:30pm to 7:05pm. To purchase tickets, go to www.nationals.com/craftbeerweek.
And don't forget to set your DVRs before heading to the park.
John Lannan, Adam Dunn and former National Matt Capps will be featured on Bravo's "Top Chef" on Wednesday evening at 10 p.m. In the "Top Chef: Washington D.C." episode titled "Making Concessions," Angelo, Tiffany, Kelly, Kevin, Ed and Amanda take over two concession stands at Nationals Park to create game snacks for die-hard baseball fans.
Of course, Thursday is Ladies Night. The theme is Vegas, and as always, the event will include food, drinks, entertainment, an Elvis visit, a meet and greet opportunity with Nationals players and coaches and a ticket to the game.
Tickets are available at nationals.com/ladiesnight. Tickets for the event range from $30-$164, depending on seating location.
