Heading up I-95 this weekend to take in Penn baseball's road trip to Brown and Yale. Beyond the games themselves, should be interesting to see both the league's newest (or at least most recently rejuvenated) field at Brown and its oldest at Yale. Couple of questions if you don't mind:

1. Will there be any problems with bringing food into either game? If not, does anyone have any recommendations for good takeout sandwiches on/near either campus?
2. Where exactly does one park for Yale Field? I see the lot behind left field, but it's somewhat small, and I just want to make sure that it isn't reserved for players, coaches, rich alums, etc.

No problems taking in food. You can park right next to the stadium for free. Crowd is small enough.

Son of Eli, thanks for the reassurances. Parking lot sounds much like the one at Meikeljohn,come to think of it. :-)

There are any number of restaurants on Thayer St., a short walk from the Sports Complex.

Michael Angelos on route 34 from Yale field has very good casual Italian food, sandwiches, and pizza slices,
Enjoy!

Yale OL, not only is this very convenient, but while looking the place up, I noticed a well-reviewed Japanese place right across the street that I can get dinner at on the way home. Thanks!

New Haven. Not take-out, but a shame to miss: Sally's Apizza on Wooster, Modern Apizza on State, and Pepe's (last choice) on Wooster. Best pizza in the U.S.

Providence. Nothing good on Thayer Street; just chains and other crud. But excellent bakery cafes are Seven Stars on Hope and L'Artisan in Wayland Square. Post-game beers at the Hot Club on the river next to the hurricane barrier. Haven Brothers next to city hall: unique to Providence; get legit only-in-R.I., heart-attack-in-one-sitting grub. Olneyville NY System: same.

Boston Lion, Seven Stars is a bit out of the way, since I want to park the car at the athletic complex and leave it there until the games are done, but L'Artisan is not too far away from the field, and I have never really been in that part of the neighborhood, so thanks for that suggestion. I'm having Modern Apizza Saturday night. :-)

P.S. The Hot Club is Smoke's but with a killer river deck and view of the river instead of 40th Street.

Having apizza in New Haven is always a good move. I prefer Bar (254 Crown St.). If pizza's not your thing, then try Rubamba at 25 High St. A take-out order of arepas would be great at a game.

Yeah, you're right. Bar is also good. But, as you know, picking a best New Haven apizza joint is tribal. Bigger than Ford vs. Chevy. More like Sharks vs. Jets.

I second the recommendation for Bar Pizza in New Haven. The mashed potato bacon pizza is legendary plus Louis' Lunch is across the street if someone in your party is craving a burger.

Pizza is personal, of course. I've had Bar's mashed potato bacon pizza, and it's good if you like mashed on your za. I like Sally's white clam or anchovie pies, and every kind of pie at Modern. Also, there's a style choice here. Bar is a contemporary place, whereas the holy trinity of NH apizza places are more old school.
