Though I usually enjoy these food drafts, I feel like ballpark food is a tough one, since ballparks these days go out of their way to have “signature” items, or at least unique items. Also, location and time of year factors in greatly. Like, the Giants have a Ghirardelli hot chocolate guy with a giant tank of hot Read more

While I think Marnie has the better overall selection of foods, I have to give this one to Aimee with the ubiquitous one-two punch of hot dogs and peanuts. Nothing screams baseball to me more than those two snacks. That said, Marnie would absolutely be my wing-woman if we were going to a county fair.

Next, Doritos Mac n Cheese!  I don’t know if I’d go with Cool Ranch Mac, however...

Though Allison and Marnie present great lineups with the Helmet foods and the classics, respectively, I think Aimee wins on Garlic Fries alone, not to mention the Lemon Chill and peanuts. Add a hot dog and a freakin’ lobster roll (didn’t even know that was a ballpark offering in some places)?  Read more

It’s a minor league team, but I’d like to draw your attention to the Portland Sea Dogs in my home state of Maine. Last season they added a bunch of new things to the menu at Hadlock Field, one of which was lobster popcorn, which is just chunks of buttered lobster mixed in with buttered popcorn. Aimee gets her lobster, Read more

I’ve found that if you add a tea bag to a cup of hot water, as the tea leaches into the water, you end up with tea concentrate on the bottom of the cup, and the rest of the water is still clear. However, if you pour hot water over a tea bag that’s already in the cup, you get a much more uniform distribution.

People are too busy trying to ruin the lives of the most recent fallen star to become involved with a boycott of these apps that would actually have a positive effect for restaurants. Boycotting these predatory apps should have become a trend but it hasn’t yet because peoples priorities are all out of whack. We want Read more

Part of the appeal of the Great Minnesota Get Together aka Great Minnesota Taste Together is eating this stuff fresh, on a stick, while jostling around with a 100,000 of your long-vowel enunciating neighbors.

My go to story is 2 years ago my husband did construction work for someone in Gatlinburg (we live relatively close). Two bears broke into the truck and stole his lunch box that had his expensive earbuds in them. He tried to find his lunch box to no avail. Then a year later the home owner found the destroyed lunch box Read more

I thought the proper way to make British hot tea was to invade a country where it was produced then order a small boy to make it for you.

Can I just say that I love this ice cream man jargon?  “Commander” “Cruiser”  It has an air of reverence to it.
