Minor League Eats
« Topic Start: December 01, 2020, 09:54:53 AM »
Kind of a fun thread...
I have seen some interesting menu items at Minor League ballparks.  I am including a link to some interesting items.
In my opinion, this is one of the best parts of the minor league experience. 
I thought it might make for interesting conversation to see what some of Nationals fans' favorite Minor League eats. 
Feel free to share your favorites.  Photos are appreciated.   :D

my minor league eating experience has largely been at the Pfitz.  Think "sabret hot dog truck circa 1980" quality / selection

With some kid touching it with his or her dirty fingers.  Can’t beat that.

Harrisburg offers under-cooked hotdogs, but they are cheap. Still, that ballpark makes up for anything.

I haven't been there in years.  I should try to get back up there if there is a minor league season this year.

We drove up for a Strasburg rehab start when was coming back from TJ.  Pudge was also rehabbing and was the catcher.  The place was an absolute zoo (Strasmania was still running wild).

Nice.  I bet that was a game to remember.

It almost wasn't. We didn't leave home early enough and when we arrived on the island we got one of the last parking spots.  If we had to park in downtown Harrisburg and walk across the bridge we probably would have missed it.

Another article featuring minor league ballpark foods.
Now that the Nationals have acquired the Rochester Red Wings, should we try their famous Red & White Hot???

https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/destinations/2013/06/01/12-outrageous-foods-at-minor-league-ballparks/2376915/

 Red & White Hots

This is as local of a ballpark concoction as you can get. The Rochester Red Wings' Frontier Field serves up a combo of red and white hot dogs from Zweigle's, the only hot dog brand served at the stadium since the '20s. The white hot, a cheaper alternative to the red hot, was invented in the '20s by Germans in Rochester, N.Y. This spin on the classic is made of uncured and unsmoked pork, beef, and veal mixed with mustard and other spices. Because it's uncured, the hot dog retains a white appearance. Top off local red and white hots as you like and enjoy with a side of fried pickles.

The ketchup is not the worst looking thing on that dog.

Sriracha on a hot dog is, on the other hand, absolutely fantastic  :D

Anyone ever try a Krispy Kreme burger?  I have seen them offered at several minor league parks, but never really been in the mood to try one.
