We keep getting these emails from the Dodgers telling us about their all-you-can-eat Right Field Pavilion, and while it does seem quite appealing in a Glutton Bowl way, the biggest problem with the bleachers at Dodger Stadium is you cannot get a beer there.

It appeared that the Dodgers were saying that the type of Dodger fan who would only pay $6 or $8 for a bleacher seat would be the kind that would start fights out there. But for some reason they ignored the fact that one could buy a ticket for the same price way up in the red seats and be allowed to drink their God-given brew.

2007 ushers in a new era at Chavez Ravine because according to the Dodger web site, if one buys a $35 ticket to the all-you-can-eat Right Field Pavillion you can gorge all the Dodger Dogs, Coke and Nachos that you want, and if you want to lay out ballpark prices you can also BUY beer.

We're sold. If you are too you better get your act together. Only two 4-game packages remain for the Season Ticket price of $110 a ticket for four games, including the home opener. And the offer ends tomorrow. So get to it.

But the strangest thing is neither the Dodgers or even the LA Times understands what the real story is. It's not the food, which is fine, but come on, how many Dodger Dogs are you really gonna eat? It's the beer, but if you read the Times story in January when they announced the all-you-can-eat food option, they make it seem like there has been no change to the beer status:

A ticket to the right-field pavilion -- at $35 in advance and $40 on game day -- will entitle fans to an endless supply of ballpark staples, including hot dogs, peanuts and soda but excluding beer, which hasn't been sold in the pavilion for years. The Dodgers tested the concept several times last season. - LAT 1/11/07

That first sentence should read "...will entitle fans to an endless supply of ballpark staples, including hot dogs, peanuts and soda but excluding beer, which hasn't been sold in the pavilion for years UNTIL NOW BITCHES! WHOOOOO!"Leave it to LAist to give you the real scoop (two months later, but still).
