Like the chosen moniker for its famous home run statue, some might dub Marlins Park a "Tremenda Mierda" - thanks to owner Jeffrey Loria's success at sinking the city into debt to fund the creation of 37,000 empty seats. But while a trip to this Little Havana venue might reveal disgruntled players and vacant boxes, the stadium itself ain't half bad. From our one-of-a-kind home run monstrosity to the impressive selection of palatable eats, there's plenty to occupy attendees - aside from the obvious bats and balls, that is. Sip a frozen cocktail from the Clevelander and stroll past the gently jiggling bobblehead museum. Snag a BBQ pulled pork sammie from Brother Jimmy's and read up on Orange Bowl history. And if you've got a few minutes to spare, you could always check out an inning or two. That part's optional. Since no one goes to the games, parking's a breeze in the on-site garage or makeshift neighborhood lots. It's also the most sustainable stadium in Major League Baseball, so at least our city's financial ruin wasn't too devastating to the environment. Gotta look at that silver lining, after all.
