Your 2010 Improvements to Fenway Park
Per a "Red Sox" press release
1. Left Field 1934 Seating Bowl Concrete Repair, Waterproofing and New Seats
The concrete in the Lower Left Field Seating Bowl, originally constructed in 1933-34, has been repaired and waterproofed. As part of this project, the Dugout Seats, and Field Box Seats have been replaced with new seats that now contain cup-holders and cushioned seats to pad your buttocks from the fat wallet required to utilize the aforementioned cup-holders.
Additionally, a new row of Grandstand seats* has been added to the back of Grandstand sections 29, 30, and 31.
*(Due to fire code restrictions these rows of seats have been designated for Fenways roll out of its' new 2010 Virtual Seat Program (VSPs). VSPs were previously referred to as standing room only seats)
All seats, including virtual seats™, were refurbished and/or replaced by American Seating, the same company that has worked on the seats at Fenway Park since its inception in 1912. The concrete repair work was completed by NER Construction of Wilmington, MA, who also completed a similar scope of work during the 2007/2008 and 2008/2009 off-seasons in other areas of the ballpark as if anyone gives a rats ass about this.
2. New Restrooms and Concession Enhancements Behind Home Plate
In an effort to create additional space, improve circulation and enhance the fan experience, the concession stand behind Home Plate at the top of the Grandstand has been replaced by new expanded stands that offer a wider variety of food and the most overpriced under-ounced beverage items allowed by law.
3. New Concession Areas and Several New Menu Items
In 2010, ARAMARK and the Red Sox will introduce several new menu enhancements that offer fans even more dining options. In addition to their classic Fenway favorites, fans will now find double cheeseburgers, grilled chicken bistro sandwiches, and stromboli, because who doesn't want to eat stromboli at the ball park?
At the center of this year's food and beverage upgrades is an expanded and completely renovated concession area behind home plate, featuring a newly installed brick oven for cooking freshly made pizza (served whole and by the slice for easier tossing at out of town fans).
ARAMARK has also substantially expanded Fenway Park's vegetarian menu and added some new innovative combination value meals. Vegetarians will now be able to buy a new veggie burger, or veggie dog, and a pink Red Sox hat at one low price.
4. Lower Third Base Concourse Improvements
Several improvements and infrastructure upgrades have been completed in the Lower Third Base concourse. Most importantly, a new staircase has been constructed to provide improved access to/from the newly overpriced concession areas..
All off-season projects were designed by D'Agostino Izzo & Quirk of Somerville, MA, and overseen by Ipswich Associates of Boston, MA. All legal permits required for the construction were obtain by Saul Goodman attorney at law.
