    Ball Park Meals?

    Another tread about hotdogs got me to thinking. Do you have any food "rituals" when attending a ballgame?

    For example, I usually have a chicken breast sandwhich at the Machine Room with a mountain of saratoga chips before each game. Typically I'll have an order of nachos around the 4th or 5th inning. If I'm still full, I'll get a small bag of popcorn instead of nachos.

    I guess this is a good thread for those of us who get into routines and don't change much!

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I always have a super dog with kraut, and some peanuts to munch on throughout the game. I always take a couple mountain dews into the game.

    I usually bring food and water in...or eat before I get there... but if I DO eat at the ballpark it's a hot dog with kraut or a hot dog with mustard, relish, ketchup, and onions. Sometimes I'll treat myself with ice cream.

    I always buy a $1 water from the guys on the street, best deal in town.

    Try to never buy food at the ballpark, but on Wed. I had my worst experience buying food. Bought two LaRosa's hoagies with my gf, they take our money and everything then give us our hoagies, no pizza sauce on it. We ask them if they have any, and they look at me like I'm clueless. Then the lady comes back and says that they don't have any because they have been busier than they thought (hello! bobble head night, big crowd). And they only had plain chips (not a big deal, but we both wanted bbq). But come on, no pizza sauce on a steak hoagy from LaRosa's? It was like a hamburger hoagie, not very good for $8, although it was very big.

    I have made it a habit to stop by the Machine Room before the game and have a 2.00 Pepsi with free refills.

    Bring in water, sometimes peanut M&M's and usually eat before I go. Pretzel is my usual fare and I'll get a hot dog if I'm still hungry.

    I usually go to the Hofbrauhaus in Newport before the games. Great German food and great beer. Plus, I enjoy walking across the river to parking downtown.
