Highest out of freaked out and this is a sports ish on 95 a seven game are right if you love food and you love sports and this is the podcast and show for you. Do you like the ballpark next. I do like the ballpark to let go into the teens hanging out to get a hot. I will not get a hot out at Levi would you buy when he goes to game an eighteen year at the coliseum. So we spoke about the garlic Fries those are my go to a crime I also like to have a pretzel. I I I deal with without cheese with that dot she's out solves. Articles are all okay. I'm just an animal products guide post your vegetarian I try my best and put it like Cecil format a ball park. Which we will be talking about candies you know a little bit suspicious I will keep it to you know foods that come out of the sustainable food bread. The NATO. Right full well coming up on the sports is right now we talk about ballpark food safety Roth accompanied food items and leave eyes and chick filet at falcons do you stadium that there is a catch to that and she knows. Cheerios Serb deputy creative way. Right so the Major League ballpark food safety rankings are out and I love going to the ballpark and being that we are in San Francisco we have. The giants played AT&T we house of the Oakland a's who played at the coliseum. And I were a Mecca for food here with this is the best place were spoilt we have one of the best culinary options here in the Bay Area B. On spoil the type of restaurant chefs. We talk about that all day. You can't go wrong here and it reflects in our ballparks around on us mostly at AT&T Moore herself in the coliseum. Recently the coliseum bust out those tracks this year that's a great idea. But it's wrapped up parking at eighteen tee you're gonna definitely. This might run in the back of your mind and I think don't eat the food but just think twice you never know your food is coming from. Apparently they rank indeed ballparks based on food safety and eight teen ranked in the middle. 1414. Not as bad and not act good but not horrible but not horrible not horrible of the policy. Guest guest for the coliseum Kaman and beat think it's 25 to twenty aces second to last. How he came in second to last regards to safety. And they never one ballpark in regards to safety when it comes to the food is Safeco Field where the spine. With a man display yes so here's the observations the it's based down on Mike broken equipment and evidence of the road in these are violations that they caught at some of these things of course there of violations citations of things like spread of food borne illnesses that may have spread. Maybe an inspector. Wasn't there to correct violation but scenes risk factors and things like that so you got to keep all that in mind. That's what they went by when they tested this and this is data from Sports Illustrated when he in local health departments it was compiled and shared with that so. Safeco Field only five total violations. That's pretty impressive for the whole year very impressive and wanted to it was critical. Mean. Somebody got an in on this earth like road and Brian you know that there is Berman. Man. Evidence of Berman around so. Basically Seattle did set the league standard and again it wasn't clips that they are number one by a landslide that their only victory was for food health. Food held at an improper temperature. So you know he won deftly makes street pay attention to that but spot in the world to minor violations recited pretense stored improperly. And then. There's 2016 inspection was not too bad at last year's results for worse overall also got a little bit better. On this year but you can enjoy all those grasshoppers they serve there with. Very few violations at Safeco Field. I wish we could say the same about Tropicana Field now because they were dead. Last that it's staggering 100 in five critical violations in two out the G deduct out of the it to about his avid seed. It's 241 total violation a 105 critical Tropicana Field do you people Tampa Bay Rays people enjoying your game. Maybe. It hit me and figured they were not eating not storing their food prop really there's a lot of single anonymous there. Basically to food entities the catering kitchen and Beasley standout sections and three at three tallied every twenty violations each. Violations range from the observed presence of lied insects to black mold accumulating inside a little while pace being in the up. That's really bad old as terrible Tampa Bay as terrible Tropicana Field get it together but I guess it's not say much for the coliseum because. They came in at 27. Now most of the coliseum get this has gone on an expected for this season so far but a total 49 food intrigue and Indies have been investigating using data from 2016 on board. Nearly every stand had at least one violation so everywhere you got food nurturing at the coliseum at least one health code violation. 60% had at least one critical violation. That's more than half. Of the food stands there things were for the most part pretty bad there were signs of vermin AK erode and food kept at unsafe temperatures. Hand washing facilities in ill repair and it caught my least apparently was four facilities. Not equipped with sanitation measurement testing equipment so. Out Connie does not specify inspector observation we do know that the costing meets a step it up on a lot of things apparently. Safety is one ounce of 63 critical violations. And a 131. Well we've got to do better we ought to do about because. We love food out here in the game people support their team so we. You have people that really go to every game. And they went and he gets older and he you know you wanna be able you're eating his hot dog safely. So it's part came right in the middle number fourteen the higher in the middle to be exact but. A league high. A hundred intent individual food entry establishes it establishments were inspected at eighteen tee in April of 2017 so. And of all the ballparks. In that they tested at all Tony ballparks AT&T has the knows the options. Under intend individual food entry establishments which is not surprise me about when the best. Varieties when you little ballpark it's really fun. On to try to culinary options there so the city published publicists general violations rather than individual observations so this limit. The specificity of imports the one of the most common was it adequate and inaccessible hand washing facilities that people in Cantonese food with. On eight instances of vermin infestation and one high risk six moderated. The most recent actions show a sharp uptick in total stance with at least one critical violation. And in 2014. That cover her from ESPN found that only 4% of the Kennedys at AT&T had a critical violation. That numbers now over 9% so they've gotten worse done worse I wonder why I don't know 56 critical violations 88 Intel. And you know they have. Have added a few more restaurants because I I when I first came to AT&T park I was a freshman in college in 2013. And they did have the riding they do now now they down and with more food does come more problems yes. Picture but you know if you if you restaurants. You expect that restaurant to be cleaned up not tune Tammy you're eating their food you expect that to wash his hands you expect. They're to be no rodents running around where you eat these things it's it's out or it's hard to control stuff like that I'd. Some house seat Clinton's good job of it. Weekends oh coliseum. I am not a hundred are in a look at it CP. If that's not gonna go to the ball games and enjoy the culinary options but I am definitely going to I think twice move with caution via proceed with caution will announce that you guys absolutely well. Stadiums were not part of the ballpark food safety rating that was strictly for baseball state or baseball ballparks but. There is stating close by us Levi stadium which at the coliseum is part of the readers okay I'm back. That Lee Brice stadium is. They just hosted all aid and media event that featured Alton new food items of times at nine fans can expect to see this sentence so. Additions to concession stands this year include star Burt chicken. Red rooster tacos and the or panic. A course through tracks from off the grid will be Indy faithful mile fans curtailed eating before the games. One thing that sticks out that I'm very excited about current pattern in like I it's neck. Okay I'm not a huge fan but I can handle some pro am I can handle some present in less dairy. I feel nailed it after like consistency of yogurt is. Team like he gets too thick. I have to agree. We mean up ice cream I scream apps right I I gore stinky. But yogurt frozen yogurt is much lighter to me lighter tasting it like it's just that he. Don't feel that in your stomach words if it's a little bit better for you in general Mario is I mean as I think it's a Michael were acting like that. So they now have a for robot. It is a robot edition of frozen. Yogurt. OK I'm kind of X I've never seen before that's cool and only on the levels for the premium tickets. All there they go Klaas does that if I had it asked me out to nick I area but. Maybe we can sneak in lending do little feature on the sports dished we go check it out but he app frozen yogurt robot called a fro by. And state officials say some of the new ideas Kane street firms surveyed thousands of fans asking what they liked. What they did what they wanna see and that's what they and that's the best way to go about it as a should be fine. Well definitely got to Levi's and checked some of that out now the falcons have a new stadium. This year and one of the great things idea I think they're doing is that. They are offering a lot of their food options and streak options at very reasonable prices so this looks amazing. I haven't seen it but I've heard some spectacular stores it's unreal it's so state of the art it just looks. Amazing it's got this retractable group but it kinda opens like a lens of the camera. It's pretty it's pretty pretty clean deftly to go online look it up it's really really interesting how they did this and looks like a lot of fun. But they're trying to price at their feet hands and we know so like a Beers gonna be at four box. You get hot dogs for around two dollars I mean they're really doing a good job so one food items that they will be offering is way. Customer service at two Feliz excellent aid that's I've now excellent I've actually twice because there's not one near me. OK oh and in no way out in the day. They're not a commodity like that now there's not a lot of them I think there's one or two in east bay prize mean if that. I think I think the one I wish she was actually in Southern California near Palm Springs. So. It's very good iron over as far as like fast food chains go it's one of the better when it's like right up there with and now and they use it or canola oil to cook their fry a lot healthier all right good options. They are day I believe a Christian based company so they do not open on Sunday. They believe have not they want their placed her on some days. I had mixed emotions about this on the falcons. Here's a stick to that at the stadium so when you kind of hit on a Sunday. At about in the stadium chicklet will be there but it's like UT's you don't get an because close on Sundays they're gonna stick to their. Enos stick to their guns and not change the days at the open and closed at keep it the same for every franchise and now that the falcon. Know that coming in it too I mean and pat have been part of the contract negotiations. Everyone knows chick filet is closed on Sunday. I guess I mean if you if your regular visitor you know I would not everywhere you're right if you're not familiar with the chain but. I don't wanna go to the game be disappointed. I don't wanna go see chick filet and no I can't. You can't have it I mean and what the falcons have a Thursday night game against the saints on December 7 particularly fans if you're going to be out there. It. Could not out is that to regulate it's going to be a bag on Thursday night you're locked. You get to rather delicious chicken sandwiches and their franchise picked and canola oil. But here's the thing too there are going to be each events. And stuff happen eighteen other days on a Friday or Saturday at the state true so Agassi at the receding Mercedes-Benz. Steed that's what it's called so I DN Rory. I'd say options it's not the end of the world but you'll definitely see it a football game very often. Atlantic united home games and there are two college football games ever Labor Day weekend. And sorry some concert RX while on October 12 I'm searches. I'm sure is an eclectic that. You know there's more of them. Oh definitely gotten there yet down south down south and west where the lot of people who like country music everywhere you go yeah exactly self. To explain okay you got your name out there funny. Is. Some news or why they do they do that camera of the rookies named by founders and beer Ricky who has tracked. His name's mark a full Q and he would not exactly he would not go to Boston if they did have it it was he's very specific he was very specific and heat that's to play yeah. Deer car. Big fat chick filet it fail and let it all because one of the first questions they asked him when he signed his new contracts he could do the money sick too. It ain't. It's the feet. If you go back in the day when you step basketball camps chick filet it was always a go to Neill for us from really I think because they did like a group thing when you had kids and that camp's you know and they give us a chicken sandwich a little thing of Fries and rule. Good to go the rest of the day. I'm accents are right well this makes sense to a lot of you buy it kind of makes sense to make and die. Tito's pop up restaurants in New York City this just happened and apparently it's sold out with reservations within six hours of offering them. Eight it was any art fashion there was a thousand people on the wait list just in case anyone decided not to show up but and Burrell who is a very popular chef on the Food Network.
