Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Dave and I are taking our friend Leah to her first Cubs game at Wrigley Field tonight. Between that, Cubscast on the way to work this morning, and a couple of fantastic Cubs games over the weekend, I guess you could say I’ve got baseball on the brain.


So I’m here to ask: What are your favorite baseball game snacks?

I mean, I know baseball stadiums have really been stepping it up in the food department. There are tons of stories about Dungeness Crab Sandwiches in San Francisco, Fajitas at MinuteMaid Park in Houston, Fish Tacos in San Diego and Shake Shack burgers at the new Mets stadium in New York.

I guess I’m a traditionalist, though. I don’t expect to find anything more than the standard ballpark fare. Hot Dogs and Pretzels. Nachos. Peanuts and Cracker Jacks.

When I hear about the full service restaurants at the new Yankees Stadium, I can’t imagine what people are thinking. Who wants to sit down and eat prime rib at a ball game?

Not me.

    Though I mostly just want beer, I really like the hot dogs at Wrigley… Mmmm…

    The only thing I eat at stadiums are the nachos! I know it’s gross, but I love that orange cheese-like stuff!

    They are good hot dogs 🙂 You know how I feel about beer. 😛

    It’s funny you should say that…we spent a long time drooling over everyone else’s nachos before we finally caved during the 7th inning. And they were delicious 🙂

    Beer is the big draw, natch, but I do love me some nachos!

    The Brats at Miller Park are the best baseball food I have ever had

    You guys only go to Miller Park without me, so I wouldn’t know. 😛
