Somehow I agreed to make the perilous journey from Venice Beach to Anaheim for this afternoon’s MLB All-Star Game. (5:40pm first pitch!)
Last time our brothers and sisters south of the Orange Curtain attracted such attention was 2007, when we noted the results of a then-recent Orange County Food Safety Dept. inspection of Anaheim’s MLB ballpark:
Angels Stadium was cited for “118 vermin violations that county officials logged at stadium kiosks and restaurants over the last 2½ years.
“Of those reports, 33 represent ‘major’ violations, in which ‘rodent activity’ was observed by health inspectors in a ‘critical area’ of 18 stadium food venues.“
That was three years ago.
Two weeks ago, the same inspectors revisited Angels Stadium.
Based on what they found, I don’t think I’ll be patronizing the Bo Belinsky-branded sauerkrat bar* tonight.
