One wouldn't normally associate Filipino food with America's Pastime, but on the evening of August 18, 2009, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be hosting Filipino Community Night at Dodger Stadium as the Dodgers will face the St. Louis Cardinals. As part of this special night, a designated "Dodgertown Philippines" section of Dodger Stadium will have access to an all-inclusive Filipino-themed menu.
That's right. Filipino food at a baseball game.
Historically, the closest proximity between Filipino food and a baseball game was when my grandpa (a hardcore Doh-jair fan) enjoyed a plate of Igado and rice while squatting in front of his TV--which was probably only last night. But I digress.
On the night of August 18, the special menu for the Dodgertown Philppines section of Dodger Stadium will include "Chicken Adobo, Philippine Style BBQ Pork, and Pineapple Spears." In addition to the Filipino menu, the Dodgertown Philippines section will also have access to All-You-Can-Eat Dodger Dogs, nachos, peanuts, popcorn, Coca-Cola products, and water. (It would have been awesome if they offered Filipino Spaghetti made with Dodger Dogs.)
And if the Filipino food isn't enough to get you to the game, the Dodgers will also be giving away free, limited edition (limited edish, as the kids like to say) "Dodgertown Philippines" t-shirts.
So get yourself to Dodger Stadium on August 18! How often will you be able to cheer on ManRam v. PooHoles with chicken adobo in your mouth and an $8 beer in your hand alongside a raging group of other drunken Pinoys?
