A strong stomach required for some Twins games

Posted at 9:42 AM on June 16, 2008 by Steve Rudolph (1 Comments)

The Twins have added six more All-You-Can-Eat nights this season.

If your stomach can handle watching Joe Mauer ground out to second with runners aboard, $33 for an upper club seat and all the hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, and soft pretzels you eat is a pretty good deal.

On the topic of stadium fare, the New York Times has a great interactive map that advises fans what to eat and what to avoid at all 30 major league parks.

According to the Times, the best bet for Twins fans is the carved turkey sandwich behind section 132.

I never understood why the Dome couldn't serve better food. At least it appears the Twins are trying to address that at the new stadium. While I'm not so sure about the appeal of meatloaf and potato sliders on a hot summer day, walleye tacos are a welcome addition.

What did everyone think of the items expected to be on the new stadium menu?

cheese curds and fish tacos? definitely! but i'm not sold on "seared ahi tuna" at the ballpark.
i love the interactive map. had no idea there were turkey sammies at the dome, but will definitely have to scope out that scene.
did you notice the folks doing the food at the new ballpark are also responsible for the White Sox food (amongst 8 other ballparks)? And according to that Times piece, there is NOTHING worth eating at that park. let's hope they improve on that!
