Take the Office Out to the Ball Game

By Hannah Poss Summertime means baseball season. For some people, there’s nothing more exciting than going to cheer for their local baseball team at their home stadium. Some other people, however, enjoy the games for reasons other than to watch the sport; baseball games have some really delicious food vendors! So this summer, if you don’t have time (or don’t want to) cheer on your favorite team in person, you can still get some of the classic baseball game foods that will make you feel as though you’re actually there. Throw a baseball themed party at the office with these foods: yankee A Stadium (and Office) Must-Have: Hamburgers Hamburgers are a traditional American food, and therefore, a must-have at a baseball game. Yankee Doodle Dandy’s food truck serves up a juicy, cheesy, All-American burger that definitely hits it out of the park. While the burgers are amazing, the name of the truck, itself, is just too fitting! Get this food truck delivered right to the office to get the real baseball game experience from outside the stadium.

Cheesy, Meaty, Piled-High Nachos Another typical food that can be found at baseball games are nachos. Every American loves nachos. They’re easy to eat, easy to share and obviously delicious. Have one of FoodtoEat’s newest vendors, Taqueria Sante Fe, catered right to the office to try one of their many selections of nachos. The ‘Pollo Nachos’ are definitely a home-run! IMG_0039 These Nuggets Hit the Spot Another favorite stadium food of fans is chicken fingers. Like nachos, they’re easy to eat and share so you can eat them while not getting too distracted from the game. Nuggets are the mini pop-in-your-mouth chicken finger cousin.The Nugget Spot is the perfect place to find these nuggets that will transport you right to the stadium. These nuggets are amazing on their own but even better paired with one of their many dipping sauces from ‘Nacho Queso’ to ‘Smokin’ J’s BBQ’ sauce. lucaboscoIceCream A Scoop a Day Keeps the Doctor Away! If you’ve been to a baseball game before, you know that it gets pretty hot sitting around in the stadium.  A typical way to cool down while you’re there is to get something nice and refreshing to eat. After you’ve stuffed your face with some of the many foods available, you’re going to crave something sweet. Ice cream is of course the way to go. Luca Bosco in Soho has amazing ice cream that is reminiscent of the dessert you will likely find scattered throughout stadiums. Some of their awesome flavors include: a classic Chocolate Brownie Chunk, an over-the-top Caramelized Banana and an unusual Goat Cheese scoop. These are just a few of the many delicious foods found at a baseball stadium. Bring these foods to the office for an all-American baseball-themed party.

Architecture Meets Ice Cream

Coolhaus… I get it! It’s because the ice cream sandwich looks like a house and it’s cold! Right you are…well sort of…kind of…maybe 1/3 right. The name is in fact a triple Entendre! So while an ice cream sandwich is essentially a cool house, its meaning also stems from some super cool Architecture history.

Bauhaus is a design movement of the 1930’s that connects art and design, which is essentially what Coolhaus has done with their ice cream sandwiches. It is also named for the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas who challenged architectural concepts. The ice cream gurus make the point to connect architecture into Coolhaus encompassing all of their passions.

If you ever go onto a Coolhaus truck you will see the homage to architecture and great architects. They have flavors named after famous architects all over New York City, for instance they have a flavor for the guy who designed the highline (left)! They love to get a conversation going about the ice cream and architecture.

Natasha (left) actually got her masters in architecture and she loved the idea of incorporating food into design. She saw food as a medium that promoted comfort and one that created strong happy memories. Natasha wanted to make architecture more mainstream and keep awareness for the beauty of it going.

The outreach is working too! Natasha told me a funny story about a time when she was on the streets of New York in the Coolhaus Truck. There was a huge line for the ice cream sandwiches when all of a sudden Sofia Vergara (right) and a large crowd of her friends wearing fancy Versace dresses come up to the truck. Sofia stood in front of the truck and just started reading the flavors and the people the flavors were named after. As she reads them in her nice heavy accent, Sophia, her friends, and everyone in line is laughing at the way she’s pronouncing the flavors. Between Sophia Vergara and the long line, that was some of the best advertising ever for the truck.

Coolhaus done something revolutionary with a simple ice cream sandwich. So swing by next time you are in the city. They have their locations posted on their website for the week. Who knows maybe you will end up running into Sofia Vegara and if not I guess it will be okay getting a chicken and waffle ice cream sandwich anyway while having a nice conversation about architecture.

I Scream. You Scream. We All Scream for Ice Cream!

July is National Ice Cream Month and we hope you have been celebrating accordingly so far. With the recurrent heat waves that New York has been experiencing, ice cream has served as the perfect treat to refresh yourself. Former President Ronald Reagan first recognized this month-long celebration in 1984 to celebrate the popularity of ice cream as a “fun and nutritious” food that is eaten by about 90% of Americans today.

This Sunday, July 15th, is National Ice Cream Day. Each year this holiday is celebrated on the third Sunday of July. Since the introduction of ice cream in America in the late 18th century, this frozen dessert has contributed to the growth of the national dairy industry, making the U.S. annual frozen dairy production about 1.6 billion gallons. Nowadays, we see an eclectic variety of flavors and styles of ice cream offered by manufacturers and retailers. Several chain stores as well as small businesses have opened their doors to satisfy the public’s demand for this American staple.

The most popular flavor in America is vanilla, followed by chocolate, cookies ‘n’ cream, strawberry, and chocolate chip mint. My personal favorite of all time is Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Limited Batch Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream. It’s only produced in the fall, so make sure you don’t miss your chance to buy a pint of it from the supermarket in October!

If you’re out and about on Sunday and looking for a way to celebrate, some of the ice cream trucks that will be roaming the city include Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches, the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, Van Leeuwen, and, of course, Mister Softee. Check their twitters to see where they’ll be parked so you can visit them. I hope you all indulge and enjoy this day as much as I will!
