It’s Peanut Free Night at the Joe!
Wednesday, May 15th 2019 at 6pm
We couldn’t be more excited to announce our 4th Annual Peanut Free Night! Come join us Wednesday, May 15th as the RiverDogs take on West Virginia Power (Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate). Gates open at 6:00pm and the game starts at 7:05pm.
This partnership with the RiverDogs allows families who are peanut allergic to come to the Joe and enjoy a fun night of baseball. Enjoying an evening of baseball at a stadium is a luxury that peanut allergic families often don’t feel comfortable doing. Since peanuts are a staple in America’s favorite past-time, those allergic often don’t feel safe attending this type of event. Fear of cross-contamination and exposure to peanuts means baseball stadiums are often avoided.
Thankfully, the RiverDogs understands and makes it possible for those allergic to attend a fun night out watching baseball. They diligently clean and power wash the entire stadium to make it safe for peanut allergic families. There is also an entire section dedicated to those peanut allergic. They even check people’s bags at the gate and confiscate peanuts! The RiverDogs always has lots of fun games through out the night for the kids and you can definitely count on yummy eats and drinks, too!
