I have always wanted to write a headline like that.
Despite the impending snowpacalypse (I am still waiting for it…), today was the media preview day for the Cincinnati Reds’ food, one of my favorite treats each year. I love taking my lunch hour and trying new food, hanging with the mascots, and generally just looking forward to baseball season. I was commenting to Michael Anderson, their PR person, about how much better the food has gotten since I started WMDM 5 years ago. Now, there are tons of delicious options that reflect our hometown– good on you, Reds. Investing in players AND food? I am more than OK with that.
This year, Frisch’s, which has been a sponsor of Reds on Radio for a really long time (since the 60s, at least) is now offering Big Boy sandwiches at two locations at the Great American Ballpark. I love that the Reds are embracing local brands: La Rosa’s, Montgomery Inn, UDF, Penn Station and now Frisch’s– it adds some character to the ballpark.
There are a bunch of other delicious treats as well. Some of them, like the Macho Nacho, Smoked Prime Rib Sandwich and Lo Mein Noodles are available in the ballpark. Others, like the Fried Pretzel Sticks, are available only in the Machine Room and still others are Suite-specific. Check out my photos below for some shots of the food I tried today.
