MLB Food Fest

I flew back in from Atlanta yesterday in time to make sure I got to the MLB foodfest. I’m glad I did. This was actually a really well run event. Folks attending were civil and were actually polite and didn’t try to cut lines for the food(at least from what I saw).

I ate where too much yesterday. Folks on social media on Saturday were complaining about the serving sizes of the offerings. Those folks have never been to a tasting before. You aren’t supposed to be having a full meal for each item.  I am not a seafood fan but my wife and my buddies had the Washington Grilled Crab grilled cheese and The Giants version of it and they all said the Nats one was better. Mets sent their pastrami and this is one of my fave foods from Citi Field and it tasted great also. Tampa Bay had a Cuban style hot dog sandwich which folks were digging. There were chicken and waffle cones, cheese curds and brats, buger sliders, bacon wrapped hot dogs, ice cream in helmets, and from Arizona a churro hot dog which was a desert that had a line consistently throughout the day. Miami in a cost cutting move decided to move their bacon wrapped plaintains in a trade to the Bronx for a good to be named later. Okay not really. They just ran out of them because they seemed to be very popular.

Cool event, if they run this again somewhere, I’d recommend trying to hit it because how many times in your life are you going to be able to sample all the foods from around the continental US.
