SoSG reader and Alaska resident Dusto Magnifico is making his first trip to Dodger Stadium! (The first one he'll remember, anyway, having visited as a infant. Presumably not by himself):
I'm coming down for a game this Sunday! Just woke up from a deep winter hibernation and I finally get to witness my first Dodger experience. I can't wait. Does anyone have any tips, pointers, or any kind of heads up for Sunday?
Unfortunately we can't be there to greet him...but we can gather everyone's most helpful Dodger Stadium tips. So far we have:

Dusto, I have a lot of comments...the most important of which is, get there early so you can soak it in (and visit all decks in the stadium). Take in your first Dodger dog of the day. Then go have another one. And I definitely would save time to peruse the one of the team stores in the outfield.

Dusto - Not sure if you will be in town either Friday 6/5 or Monday 6/8, but I would suggest taking the stadium tour if you get a chance. For the price, you get to see a lot of history, go places in the stadium you might not otherwise get an opportunity to get to, and perhaps learn some info you may not have already known.
When my father and I went to Dodger Stadium last summer for the first time, we were probably the first ones there for both games, and we closed the team store in the outfield both games. Take it all in!
Get to the top deck either before, or right after the game. There's a team store up there as well and the view is the best to take in the entire stadium, the surrounding ravine, and the LA skyline right behind you.
What else should Dusto know? Chime in!
