Himrich’s Top Ten Target Field Foods

One month until the geeks gather in the Gleeman homeland [for the SABR Convention], here’s what to nosh on while you are there.

10. Walleye on a Stick is a must have because walleye is the state fish.
6. The Nachos Helmet is exactly what it promises, a helmet full of nachos. I have not been able to get past how gross it looks, but maybe you can.

7. The Wild Rice Soup is made with real wild rice (not cultivated), which gives it a milder, less wild taste.

Wild wild rice tastes less wild that cultivated wild rice? Who knew?

SABR Election Results

Guess I'll throw this in here too.

Recommend Surly Bandwagon or Summit Pale Ale. Get one of each to honor both Twin Cities.

The Surly line is always crazy long, but if you're a beer nerd it's probably worth a sixth inning trip. The Summit is readily available and worthwhile at all times.

I'll vouch for Summit Pale Ale. That's some good stuff.

I'm heading to Target Field for the Cubs series, and I can't wait to try a Walleye on a Stick!

Summit Pale Ale was one of my go to brews when I lived in Minneapolis.

Walleye is a delicious freshwater fish. I loved that stuff.

Target Field is gorgeous, I know a couple who got married on the field. And to think that I got to pay tons of taxes to fund it's construction before moving away and only getting to see one game there. Gah.

Eh, Summit's pretty run-of-the-mill. One of the many disappointments about moving to the Twin Cities has been the beer scene. Leaves a LOT to be desired.

You been to Town Hall Brewery? I'd suggest trying some of their stuff.

A link to a PDF?

Where did this come from?

Fun stuff.

The Mega Meatball is the size of a baseball. Rumor has it that the center is cheese.

I'm in!
