Florida Marlins offer All You Can Eat tickets at Friday's Mets game


I’ve often noticed at Marlins games that many fans are more focused on loading up at the concessions stands than following the action on the field.

Not sure if it’s like that at other major league parks or if it’s a reflection on the Marlins or South Florida Short Attention Span Sports Theater. Or all of the above.

There is a promotion for the Marlins’ game against the Mets on Friday that may appeal to those more inclined to munch than cheer. All You Can Eat Seats in sections 212-215 provide unlimited access to a buffet of Hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts and fountain soda from the time gates open until two hours after the first pitch.

This is a recurring promotion offered on the final Friday home game of each month. Others remaining after this week are Aug. 12 against the Giants and Sept. 2 against the Phillies.

The seats are in the club level of the power (eating) alley in left field. The buffet is in the air-conditioned interior of the club level. All You Can Eat Seats are $47 in advance, $52 on game day.

Another notable promotion during this week’s Marlins homestand is 790 Infield Box Blowout for Wednesday’s game against the Padres. Infield box seats can be purchased for $7.90, a saving of $35 off the game day price. The offer also stands for remaining Wednesday games on Aug. 10 against the Braves and Sept. 7 against the Mets.

Purchase in advance at Marlins.com by entering the promotional code 790. They can also be obtained at the stadium box office on game days by presenting the Sports Talk $7.90 Infield Box Blowout coupon, available at WAXY studios at 20450 NW 2nd Ave., Miami, or at most 790 The Ticket and Marlins events.
