5 Ballparks with Great Craft Beer

Baseball may be America's favorite pastime, but for many beer fans, being taken out to the ballgame has often meant being faced with a limited draft pick, flavor-wise. Luckily, growing popularity and interest in small-production beer has inspired stadiums to begin covering their bases when it comes to beer options. More

Where to Eat Near AT&T Park in San Francisco

2011 Minor League Baseball Hot Dog Roundup

Last week we looked at Major League Baseball's 2011 roster of signature hot dogs, including a few ridiculous meat-on-meat concoctions. But some of these Minor League hot dog atrocities make those look boring! We're talking one-pound hot dogs loaded with toppings like wasabi, chocolate chips, chipotle ranch dressing, okra, pineapple, frog legs, which are then dipped into funnel cake batter, wrapped in bacon and / or stuffed into twinkies, hamburgers, or even other hot dogs.

Major League Baseball's Best and Craziest Ballpark Hot Dogs for 2011

Meat on meat insanity is big this year at the ballpark concession stands. There's the Cincinnati Reds' bacon-wrapped, deep-fried Meat Lover's Dog topped with chili and garnished with crispy fried salami. The Orioles have a brand new pit-beef and pepperoni topped Birdland Dog, while other parks are topping hot dogs with pulled pork, barbecue sauce-drowned brisket, and even cheesesteak meat. Take a look at some of the craziest dogs we found across the country—we threw some classics in there too! More

Yankees vs. Phillies: The Serious Eats World Series

With the Yankees playing the Phillies in the World Series, you knew that Serious Eats couldn't let this opportunity to compare the seriously delicious food available in these cities a mere 90 miles apart. Introducing the Serious Eats World Series, where the food emanating from the City of Brotherly Love is pitted against the quintessential eating experiences of the Big Apple. More

First Look at Citi Field Stadium Food

We got to check out Citi Field's new concession stand menu: the Shackburger (studying abroad in Queens), tacos from Danny Meyer's El Verano Taqueria, clam chowder from Dave Pasternack's Catch of the Day, salami sandwiches from Mama's of Corona, and bites from the Acela Club, the restaurant that will overlook left field. This is definitely not Shea Stadium. More

With Florida spring training in full swing, they are less focused on steroid scandals, more so on hot dog vendors and smoked corn.

In Videos: Phillies Hot Dog Launcher Mockumentary

How did the Phillies become world champs this year? Maybe because their fans stay well-nourished with projectile hot dogs. Hatfield Meats and our favorite chubby green furball mascot, Phillie Phanatic engineered a hot dog launcher and documented (mockumented?) the planning phases, which were sometimes tense given the Phanatic's temper. Like all good ideas, it started with a dream: "I liked to shoot things as a kid," says co-creator Eric Haman. As far as flying objects go, these look tastier than a home run or foul ball. The video, after the jump.... More

Andre Ethier: L.A. Dodger, Food Blogger

We somehow missed this last week, and I kick myself for that because it's such a cool story. The Wall Street Journal has a charming feature on L.A. Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier and his nascent food blog. Mr. Ethier knows where to find the best throat-meat tacos in Los Angeles, the juiciest Salvadoran papusas and the city's tastiest Romanian chicken stew. He waxes poetic about the pinto beans in his native Arizona, where they're often pureed with cream and lard. "Here they want you to taste the bean, not the lard, which is... different."In June, Mr. Ethier began snapping pictures of the dishes at some of his favorite restaurants and posting them on a blog he calls Dining With 'Dre....
