We've been to The Fairgrounds/Bullpen many times over the years after Nats games for beer & good live bands, & the festive, diverse crowd has always made for a nice afternoon. We found all that to be the same this year, but there's a change that really affects the whole experience. There are so many people smoking, both cigars & cigarettes (there's a tobacco shop in the Fairgrounds) that it's impossible to avoid being around a lot of smoke. There's no designated smoking area, so every part of the grounds has smoke blowing around. I honestly can't remember the last time I've been to a place that had that many people smoking. Besides the health risk, it irritates your eyes & throat & permeates your clothes. It's kept us away, and we miss it.
