Some fans are underwhelmed with the Friars' decision to drop beer prices by a nominal amount. Still, there was some good news on the concession front ....
The Padres blew up a beer on Tuesday at a promotional event to unveil pricing for the 2009 season. The team also unveiled a $5 value meal. For just five bucks, fans can get a hot dog, regular soda, peanuts, popcorn and a cookie. For $10, fans can get a 16-ounce beer instead of the soda.
The value meal will be in place for all of the Padres home games, officials said.
Ticket prices are dropping, too: some seats are diping by $10, while upper box seats will go for $5 less.
