Take me out to the munchies
McKenna Grant, USA TODAY WEEKEND, June 22, 2012, says ballpark food has really hit it out of the park.
Hot dogs, peanuts, and Cracker Jack, have given way to porkchops on a stick and oysters.
Each park is throwing in local delicacies. Target Field in Minnesota offers walleye on a stick, deep fried cheese curls, and Minneapple pie.
At the Marlins Ball Park—look for Cuban sandwiches. And stone crab. This is also where the fresh-shucked oysters reign.
Crab cakes in Baltimore, fish tacos in San Diego…
OK, I am hungry now.
Bring your wallet, though—these snacks aren’t cheap.
I remember when nachos were exotic. Of course, I remember a lot of things.
