Some people have a goal to get to all 30 MLB ballparks throughout their life. Major League Baseball is launching “Foodfest” where fans can try food from each stadium. So while this doesn’t exactly help people get to each stadium, they can at least try to eat the food from every stadium.
The two-day event is taking place April 21 and 22 on Fifth Avenue in New York City. For $25 (or $40 if you want alcohol), you can eat a variety of food over a two-hour period.
Obviously, the one menu item that sticks out is the Seattle’s Toasted Grasshoppers, which is exactly what you think it is. But if eating grasshoppers isn’t your style, there are other things. For me, I very much love the sound of Baltimore’s Chesapeake Waffle Fries, Toronto’s Jerk Chicken Nachos, Arizona’s Churro Dog, Atlanta’s Pig Pickin’ and Milwaukee’s Cheddar Beer Bratwurst. What’s great is that nobody just has typical hot dogs or cracker jacks; all of the food here is unique for their stadium and the city it represents.
According to MLB, you get a half size portion of what you would get at the ballpark so for the $25, you’re definitely going to get your money’s worth and have a full stomach of ballpark food.
