Cheesesteak Chowdown (Philadelphia)

Cheesesteak Chowdown (Philadelphia)

I appear to have an intensely masochistic side, don’t I?  Unfortunately, as I am the bearer of the brunt of all the pain I create, I believe that makes me a bit of a sado-masochist.  As regular readers of this blog will know, I love the Mets.  I’m a baseball fan, but my allegiance lays firmly with the Mets.  (I did root for the Yankees in the last World Series, and don’t see this as a conflict; New York is my home, and my team didn’t make it.  Period.)  I have this intense desire to visit every MLB stadium there [...]

A Guide to Eating at Citi Field

A Guide to Eating at Citi Field

Opening Day 2010 is today; what’s more fitting than sharing all the tricks I picked up eating through CitiField last season?  Fortunately, as a plan ticket holder, I was invited to attend a pre-season workout on Sunday, with the Taste of the City concessions open for fan enjoyment.  Unfortunately, many of the tips/tricks that I wanted to share as a “What to Eat Around CitiField” have turned out to be somewhat obsolete now… BOO.   But first, my time at CitiField previewing: first up as you walk into the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, the new Hall of Fame museum!  It is directly [...]

Citi Field: Blue Smoke, Shake Shack & Fried Dough

Citi Field: Blue Smoke, Shake Shack & Fried Dough

(What, did you think because it’s my blog-birthday, I wouldn’t post?!  Silly people…) The season is over in a few days, though for many Mets fans, the season’s been over for quite a while now.  I wrote parts of this a while back, but hadn’t a chance to post it.  With one last homestand this weekend, maybe it will help you decide what to eat as you mourn the passing of yet another season.  Maybe not.  I won’t be at this weekend’s games, but I will be back next year.  See you around, Citi Field.  I will definitely be following [...]

Nationals Park

“Let’s go Nats” sounds an awful lot like “Let’s go Mets” doesn’t it? It’s no secret how much I love baseball.  Perhaps slightly lesser known is my desire to visit - and eat some amazing ballpark food from – each and every one of the 29 MLB stadiums around the country (and one in Canada)… and blog about each stadium and its food (of course!).  In any case, I started the journey timidly back in May, with a trip to PNC Park in Pittsburgh with my boyfriend.  It was a good trip, but I couldn’t help but wonder how much MORE I [...]

Citi Field: Nachos Grande and Taqueria

June 22, 2009.  St. Louis Cardinals v. New York Mets. Another game.  Another photograph of David Wright’s first at-bat.  (I have a collection starting from last season continuing through this year to the games I’ve attended.)  We won this game.  As it was a night game post-work, I didn’t want to eat too much.  It was slightly chilly – this season has yet to warm up, still – so I grabbed a jacket and headed to the Nachos Grande stand (the one on promenade level close to the elevators by right field as you come up). The menu.  I find [...]
