(Ted Lerner's Party Tent is coming down. Picture via the Facebook group page: "Take Down The Red Tent In Left Field at Nats Park!")
And so, the infamous Red Tent blocking one of the only views of the Capitol from the seats at Nationals Park will apparently come down prior to Opening Day 2011.
This good news was delivered on Thursday via Twitter by @NatsTix, the official Ticket Sales and Service Twitter account for the Washington Nationals, in response to a comment from a concerned Nationals fan about the ugly red eyesore:
" ...how about taking down the red tent that blocks the view of the Capitol?"

"...the tent is also coming down for 2011."

Sweet. But now where will all the corporate muckety-mucks for their pregame picnics?
