St. Paul Saints Food-Free Seats

Also available on Free to Enjoy Baseball.

I received a tip from a reader (Thanks, G!) about the June 25, 2009 St. Paul Saints game and confirmed the details with Wendy Wessel, Coordinator of Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota. This is the 5th year of the food-free section at a St. Paul Saints baseball game! You heard right--peanut-free, nut-free, completely food-free! Wendy explained the arrangements: "They arrange for us to reserve the top several rows of a section, with an empty "buffer" row between our section and the rows below. Our area gets extra cleaning before the game. Their food vendors cannot try to sell food in our area. They place extra ushers in the aisles to communicate the accommodations with other fans if they try to sit in the empty row or bring food in our area. Some of our attendees bring snacks to the game but go to main walkways under the bleachers to have them and then they return to their seat. Drinks are allowed in our area."

Ticket information for the game will be available at the end of April at www.foodallergysupportmn.org.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I saw the huge welts all over my back...I mean, clearly I'm allergic to alot. I don't understand why I would all of the sudden develop these allergies, although I know I've been increasing alot of what I'm allergic to because they are healthy choices. Been eating tons of apples, soy, nuts, broccoli, salads, etc. Anyway, do you have any advice for me? I need all the help I can get...

Hey Christine, you must be online right now because I was just on your blog a moment ago! I have no medical expertise whatsoever. I just firmly believe it's important to get a second and sometimes third opinion, especially when you're talking about serious medical issues such as the ones you describe on your blog. We live very close to Boston and it took 4 different doctors to give us a good treatment just for my son's eczema. It shouldn't be so difficult to get good advice, but it is. Even allergy test results can be interpreted differently by different allergists. Maybe a Food Allergy Buzz reader or a member of the superb forum www.fooodallergysupport.org can recommend an amazing allergist near you. I highly recommend you visit www.foodallergysupport.org to get their read on your situation--they have a wealth of experience with allergies, both adults and kids. I am sorry I don't have better info personally.

Ack, Christine, I can't find an email address for you! I hope you will go over to www.foodallergysupport.org and visit the section called Adults with Food Allergies. They have so much experience with similar situations, I think they may have better advice than I.
