July 5, 2016 -- Coney Island has long been known as the Hot Dog Capital of the World, but thanks to a recent addition to the culinary landscape, "The People's Playground" has so much more than franks to offer. This season, the Brooklyn Cyclones are proud to have partnered with the mouth-watering Wahlburgers, who recently opened their first New York location on Stillwell Avenue on Coney Island.
"Wahlbugers, just like the Cyclones, is a family first organization that prides itself on providing an exceptional product and being actively involved in their community," said Cyclones General Manager Kevin Mahoney. "It's a perfect pairing - like The Our Burger and a side of tater tots - because both of our teams are so like-minded.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Cyclones for their 2016 season, and what hopefully will be many seasons to come,” said President and COO Maurizio Marfoglia of WBDC Hospitality LLC, operater of Wahlburgers Coney Island. “Wahlburgers is dedicated to creating memorable experiences for our customers and we hope to do the same for Cyclone fans with this exciting new partnership."
To kick off this new partnership, the Cyclones will have a special Welcome to the Neighborhood Celebration on Friday, July 15th. As part of this event, the Cyclones will be offering a limited edition Donnie Wahlberg bobblehead with a game ticket for just $25. Donnie will be on hand to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and for A&E's hit series "Wahlburgers." At this time there are no plans for a formal meet & greet with Donnie. In addition, those who purchase tickets through this special offer will be eligible to receive a pair of tickets to see Donnie and the rest of "New Kids on the Block" perform at the Coney Island Amphitheater on August 4th courtesy of Live Nation. The bobblehead is ONLY AVAILABLE to those who purchase this package.
Tickets are available now by logging on to BrooklynCyclones.com, calling 718-507-TIXX or in person at the MCU Park Box Office.
