Merlot and outside: Mariners wine bar a hit at Safeco
Safeco Field ain't your grandpa's ballyard, where "beverage selection" meant $1.50 tin cans of Old Style that Al the "BEER-HERE!" guy had to punch twice with a can opener.
The home of the Mariners has sushi, sophistication and a full wine bar on the lower level. Yes, grownup grape juice at a baseball game, and not only in the fancy-pants suites.
Salud, Seattle. Somewhere, Al sheds a single, sudsy tear.
