I was there too buddy! My first opening day ever. I enjoyed all the pomp and circumstance, especially Mo Vaughn and his son throwing a rocket.

Cashless was fine but it was really weird that the vendors walking around accepted ONLY cash. They can't get those little readers?

Also if you're looking for meat free options, they had Ming Bing veggie burger things that were excellent.

As for the game, we got to see Raffy and Dougie go deep, so that was fun.

First one ever? That surprises me.

I was wondering if the vendors were cashless too. That's good to know. I loved see Mo's kid peer in for the sign. Kid was living it up out there.

If the vendors go cashless you wouldn't be able to pass money down the row. You'd have to get up out of your seat to pay.

Before the game I went to the rest room and there was a family trying to do pictures.
Not Fenway's most picturesque place, but OK

You could just pass your credit card down the row, or even easier, yell out your number to the vendor.

Like when you're on the phone in an office and sitting your account number, ss#, pin, etc. into the receiver.

YC, it frightens me when we agree on something (Kershaw).

It doesn't sound cashless if the walking vendors are cash-only

How do you give a tip to someone behind the counter who gives you good service if it's gone cashless?

The places I’ve been to have a computer screen that swivels toward the customer and has a space to designate a percentage or custom amount as a tip. Similar when mobile ordering via the phone. Probably wouldn’t have many workers if there wasn’t a mechanism for tips.

I went to a few places for food on Friday, only one of them did the swivel thing. I assume that will get a bit more standard as the year goes on and employees get used to it.
   13. Darren Posted: April 17, 2022 at 12:52 PM (#6072166)
They all swiveled for me and made kind of a big point of pointing out that I needed to fill out the tip info to move forward. It was a little weird in that, normally, from what I've seen people throw a couple of dollars down on a large order or maybe 1-2 if it's one drink. But the default for the onscreen tip is in percentages, and though a 20 percent tip is quite a bit more than that, it felt cheap to select a lower percentage or custom tip.

Also, one guy still had a place where you could leave him dollar bills.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I bought something with cash. Is adding a tip onto a card payment something new for some of you?

FWIW, last year at Fenway the beer vendors' card readers did not have the option to tip. The workers naturally did not like that.
