The Gateway Grizzlies‘ 2010 season opens in just 3 days. It’s the best baseball for the best price in our area, and I plan to take the boys to more than our fair share of games this season.
For the last several years, the Grizzlies have offered one of baseball’s most unique – and awesome – concession items: “Baseball’s Best Burger.” The burger was a patty topped with cheddar cheese and bacon, then sandwiched between two halves of a Krispy Kreme glazed donut. Yes, it was that good.
This year, the competition in ballparks has gotten stiffer, and they’ve introduced THE BEAST.
THE BEAST is FIFTEEN (yes, 15) 1/3-pound Holten Beef (locally raised & processed) patties. 15 x 3 = 5 pounds of beef. That’s marinated with Andria’s (local steakhouse) steak sauce, topped with bacon & pepper jack cheese, and placed between a MacArthur’s Bakery (great local STL bakery) Gourmet Hamburger Roll. Other local touches include the option of produce from Eckerts Farm and horseradish from Keller Farms.
You have to call the Grizzlies’ catering office in advance to order THE BEAST. Or you can order the wimpy “junior” version (1/15th of the regular) at a concession stand during a game.
This reminds me of a few years ago at Rodgers Townsend when Matt Clement and I accepted our co-workers’ challenge to eat Hardees’ new (at the time) Monster Thickburger.
Who’s up for the real thing this time around?
