When you head to Safeco Field this year to watch the Seattle Mariners I sure hope you come hungry and thirsty, because the Mariners, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Centerplate and several local restaurants and breweries have teamed up to make your dining experience for the 2018 season something to remember.
At yesterday’s preview event, I had the opportunity to sample many of the new food and drink offerings you’ll find waiting for you at the ball park this season. You’ll have to come try them all for yourself, perhaps at the home opener next Thursday, March 29th as you cheer on the Mariners against the Cleveland Indians.
Safeco Field already has a great reputation for providing some of the very best food and drink available at a major league stadium. Every year since 2014 I’ve been telling you about all the amazing gastronomic delights and wonderful, local craft beers you can enjoy while watching the Seattle Mariners play.
Now, with the 2018 season getting under way, it’s time once again to check out what you can expect at the Safe this season, including two big new names: Din Tai Fung and Jack’s BBQ. Tomorrow, 3/21, I’ll be attending a special media preview of new Safeco Field menu items for the Mariners 2018 season, courtesy the Seattle Mariners, Centerplate and Ethan Stowell Restaurants.
Spring has finally arrived in the Northwest and that means, of course, the return of baseball. For the past few years, I’ve kept you up to date on what delicious craft beers and gourmet food choices you can expect to find each Seattle Mariners season at Safeco Field.
Well, it’s that time again and I’ve been invited back to check out some new offerings for this year’s menu. Ethan Stowell has, once again, partnered with Centerplate and the Seattle Mariners to bring you some amazing creations including: Seattle ‘Wings’ (Taylor Shellfish Farms fried oysters with Frank’s RedHot sauce), authentic Oaxacan chapulines (toasted grasshoppers with chile-lime salt seasoning), and frozen custard cookie sandwiches.
Yesterday afternoon I attended this year’s food and drink preview for the 2016 Seattle Mariners‘ Season at Safeco Field, courtesy of the Seattle Mariners, Centerplate and Ethan Stowell Restaurants. Over the past few years, watching baseball at the Safe has become synonymous with enjoying delicious food and what is probably the best beer selection found in any major league ball park in the nation. I have for you the complete list of beers available this year (including the first ever Sour beer to be served in any major league ball park), and where you’ll be able to find them around the stadium.
I’ll also fill you in on this year’s food offerings, which did not disappoint. Whether you’re hungry for sandwiches, sausages, wings or more, you’ll find something delicious to enjoy while cheering on the M’s this season. My favorite was probably the Porchetta sandwich. I’ll go over each food item for you to whet your appetite.
Seattle definitely knows its craft beer. That’s an indisputable truth. On many national lists of where to find the best craft beer, Seattle sometimes gets overlooked for our friends to the South in Portland but, when it comes to craft beer selection at MLB stadiums, Safeco Field is tough to beat.
Last year, they were ranked right at the top among several lists of the best stadiums for craft beer in the nation and the list of great beers available at the Safe continues to grow. According to The Daily Meal: “The ballpark is actually known nationally for its reputation as a good place to watch baseball and drink good beer. They feature both locals and national breweries — and there’s a long list of them.”
Are you one of those people who believes that bacon makes pretty much everything better? How about beer? Beer makes everything better too, doesn’t it? So what could be better than bacon and beer? Not much that I know of. Does this sound like something you might enjoy? Then keep reading.
Last year I told you about the 1st Annual Bacon & Beer Classic, which debuted at Safeco Field last May 17th. This event of gastronomic glee paired local craft beers with tantalizing snacks, each one featuring bacon as a main ingredient. Well, this celebration of the best way to tax your liver and harden your arteries is returning to the Safe, this year on May 2nd.
