Wrigley Field Announces New Menu With More Local Vendors, Healthy Options
Published March 29, 2011
CHECKING THE MENU: The Rays and hospitality partner Centerplate announced changes to the menu at Tropicana Field, including gluten-free items, local craft beers and a new burger spot. The Brewhouse, a pub-like restaurant, will open close to the rotunda entrance. Burger Up! will open along the first-base food court, and a GF! stand at Center Field Street will feature gluten-free versions of traditional ballpark fare like hot dogs, pretzels and beer (Rays). Meanwhile, the Twins and Delaware North Sportservice announced new local additions to Target Field concessions. New this season will be a turkey sandwich from Turkey to Go, a Walk A Taco from St. Paul-based El Burrito Mercado, Minneapple Pie from Cottage Grill and two Kramarczuk's bratwurst dishes. There also will be a new Kosher hot dog cart at the ballpark (Twins).
FLIPPING A QUARTER: In Milwaukee, Don Walker noted “most food and beverage items at Miller Park will stay the same as last year, but there will be higher prices for some beer, soda and food offerings.” A 16-ounce plastic bottle of beer “will now be $6.75,” a Chicago-style hot dog will be $4.50, and a 28-ounce soda will be $4.50. All three items are increasing $0.25 over last year's prices (JSONLINE.com, 3/28).
