Take Me Out to the Ballgame

What's a summer without going to a baseball game? Ok, at least for the Chung family, summertime always meant an outing to see the Cubs play.

In recent years, it's been a little harder to get out to Wrigley to see the Cubs but somehow I've managed to see my favorite team play four times this season in 3 different parks. Each park came with some delicious local food options:

Minute Maid Park:
Technically, Twin Sista and I saw an exhibition game between the Cubs and the Astros back in March, but it was fun to see the Cubbies out in Houston. And how Texas is it that they have tacos at the ballpark? While the menu is limited compared to a regular Torchy's, they still offer up some of the best tacos in the city. Also, they just opened Shake Shack at the park! 

Miller Park:
When I went with my cousin up north to Milwaukee to catch the Cubs, I passed on a hotdog to enjoy a local favorite: the bratwurst. I didn't realize until a couple years ago that Wisconsinites love their brats, especially with some mustard and sauerkraut. 

My favorite part about Brewers games is the sausage race during the middle of the 6th inning, where sausage mascots race each other around the field (bratwurst, Polish, Italian, hot dog and chorizo). And thanks to my cousin, we had amazing seats for the racing and baseball action---we even made it on tv!

Wrigley Field:
Wrigley may not have the glitz and glam of other modern day ballparks in the country, but it definitely has its charm. While I wasn't able to track down the gourmet dogs from Hot Doug's, a grilled Chicago (without ketchup) hot dog always hits the spot when I'm at Wrigley. I even got a foot long one! 

Hopefully I'll make it to a Royals game when I officially move to Kansas City and I'll be crossing my fingers for a Royals vs Cubs World Series this year.
