I wouldn’t consider myself a huge baseball fan, but SunTrust Park is more than just a stadium. Some of the best food establishments and breweries in Georgia have set up establishments around the stadium. There’s also a music venue and shopping.

I do feel for the Starbucks employees, as a former Starbucks barista myself. I’m sure this has been a week of frappuccino hell.
