Events at the Dodger Stadium

April 14, 2009

Last weekend, my boyfriend dragged me to the Dodger Stadium for a 2 hour tour. To be honest with you, I wasn’t too excited at first.  As the day went on, the more excited I got, hearing about the history of the Dodgers. Then we went into the Dodger Martini Lounge, (where you can have cocktail receptions, bar and batmitzvahs etc) where they talked about all of the different types of events and WEDDINGS that they have had there in the past. My eyes and ears instantly perked up. Who knew???

 After the fabulous tour, I went home to research more online and was surprised to find out how much information their was on weddings, at the Dodger Stadium. I even found information and images on Here Comes the Guide. http://www.herecomestheguide.com/location/detail/dodger-stadium/ You can hold your event outside on the field (not on the grass) or indoors at their Dugout Club, “which has the feel of a private nightclub”.

So if you’re a HUGE Dodger fan, have no fear, there is a place right at the Dodger Stadium, to host your event.


Emergency Kit
