Baseball’s Riotous 10-Cent Beer Promotion

beer2by Steven Doyle

Throughout time baseball has been known for wacky schemes to promote attendance. You may recall the Bill Veeck story where he hired Eddie Gaedel to pinch hit during a game in 1951. Gaedel was 3’7 and had virtually no strike zone. The short player was subsequently disqualified but his legend lives on. Bill Veeck has a suite named for him at the Ranger’s stadium today.

Then we have the legendary game between the Texas Rangers and the Cleveland Indians that took place June 4, 1974 where beer was a mere dime as a promotion. Sounds great, right? Wrong.

A recent visit to the Ranger’s stadium netted a few new hot items that have been added to the menu of absurd. The first is the Tanaco, a giant 24 inch taco made fresh at the ballpark, and filled with one foot of seasoned ground beef and another foot of seasoned chicken. The whole monstrosity is then topped with shredded lettuce, nacho cheese, pico de gallo, sliced jalapeños and sour cream.    Continue reading

The 2014 Definitive List Of The Best Hot Dogs In Dallas

dogby Steven Doyle

It has been a year since we revised our best hot dog list, and the list changed dramatically. Today we have bigger and better options when it comes to the reliable tube steak. Check out our list of favorites and enjoy all these dogs during National Hot Dog Month:

Luscher’s Post Oak Red Hots:  You might know Brian Luscher; chef, charcuterie maven, owner of The Grape. Just last year he moved into a new arena when he devised the Post Oak Red Hot. This snappy and delicious rendition is part of a full line up of dog related bites that includes an oak smoked hot dog made with locally raised meats. You can also find hand-made accouterments  to devise your own Chi Dog including sport peppers, spicy brown mustard and sweet and hot cucumbers. The dog is sold by the chef at the White Rock Local Market at Green Spot  on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, 8am to 1pm, and the White Rock Local Market at Lakeside on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, 8am to 1pm. For take home goodness try checking out Bolsa Mercado and the Green Grocer.  Luscher’s is the Holy Grail of Dallas dogs. Continue reading

Play Ball! Opening Day Of Baseball Brings In New Fare At The Ballpark

rangersby Steven Doyle

Today is Opening Day of Baseball at Globe Life Park (née Ballpark in Arlington) and the crowds are record breaking. Walking through the various parking lots you will see plumes of smoke as tailgaters are taking advantage of the beautiful weather and pre-game spirits.  Grills are in full production to beat hunger, and possibly the high prices set inside the park for hot dogs and nachos. As many know the Ranger chefs have been busy over the past few year to set themselves apart from the past driven by sad boiled wieners and flimsy pseudo-cheese soaked chips. The birth of the Boomstick brought in a new era to the ballpark, one worthy of Texas bragging rights. The Boomstick is a 2-foot all-beef hot dog, smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapenos and caramelized onions, all on top of a massive potato bun. The whole thing weighs in at 3 pounds, and when introduced in 2012 the Rangers sold a half million dollars worth of the dogs that first year.  Continue reading
