The start of the 2018 Major League Baseball season has also brought a number of new menu items to various American ballparks.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim unveiled a total of 15 dishes to their menu, while the Los Angeles Dodgers brought ten new menu items to Dodger Stadium.

Before mentioning a few of these mouth-watering foods, it is safe to assume that any kind of food or beverage you purchase at an Angels or Dodgers game will not be cheap.

 

The prices of most of these gourmet foods are not listed, but fans who plan on enjoying these tasty items can expect a cost ranging from $10 to $25 per item.

The Dodgers have an item that has already become a fan favorite: the Cheet-O-Lote, a roasted sweet corn rubbed with lime, mayo, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, cotija cheese and tajin seasoning.

Another popular item at Dodger Stadium is the Churro Cake, composed of hot churro, horchata ice cream, Abuelita’s brand caramel and Abuelita’s brand shavings.

In Anaheim, Angel Stadium provides fans with its own array of calorie-loaded items, including the popular Pastrami Fries, which are fries loaded with pastrami, cheese, pickles and secret sauce.

The Smoked Ring Spud, a baked potato stuffed with smoked pork, cheddar cheese, green onions and topped with fried onions, has also established itself as one of Angel Stadium’s most delicious menu items.

Each year, the items on the menus at not only baseball games but at all sporting events continue to grow in their amount of calories as well as their price, but that does not stop fans from spending money at games.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What football fans can expect from the Chargers’ and Rams’ upcoming new stadium

 

Southern California is set to add another entertainment venue to its list of attractions, this time in the form of a $2.6 billion stadium, which will be the centerpiece of a 298-acre sports and entertainment district in Inglewood.

The new stadium, named the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, is set to open by the start of the 2020 NFL season, and will host both the Los Angeles Rams as well as the Los Angeles Chargers.

Football fans in Southern California will not be disappointed: the NFL’s soon-to-be largest stadium, which has a seat capacity of 80,000, will also be the most expensive sports arena in the world.

The NFL has been criticized in the past for its handling of re-locating some franchises.

 

The decision to leave St. Louis and move back to Los Angeles in 2015 was a popular move for the Rams, while the Chargers’ re-location to Los Angeles drew some criticism from  fans in San Diego, the team’s previous location.

Most people can agree that the new entertainment palace that is the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park will be everything fans want it to be, yet the location of the stadium was an area of great discussion.

On January 31, 2014, the Los Angeles Times reported that Stan Kroenke, owner of the (then) St. Louis Rams, purchased a 60-acre parcel of land just north of the Hollywood Park site.

The area of land happens to be located in Inglewood, which some people did not see as an ideal location for a stadium due to the belief that the city is dangerous.

Another concern about the location of the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park was that Inglewood is a city that is not close to any tourist attractions.

This second concern is a seemingly small one, however, due to the fact that the new stadium is going to be the centerpiece of a larger development known as the sports and entertainment district.

Chris Hibbs, the chief revenue officer for the L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District, revealed a model of the stadium and ensured that fans will not be disappointed.

“”You have to make sure you have cold beer, great hot dogs and food options, great sight lines and video boards that bring replays and Red Zone to life like no other building; all the things the typical NFL fan is looking for in a venue. You have to have an environment that suits NFL fans,” said Hibbs.

Fan bases for both the Rams and Chargers, as well as fans of opposing teams who visit the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, are in for a real treat when the stadium opens in 2020.
