Holy crap they have bacon on a stick at Camden Yards

Bacon

And better yet, it comes in Natty Boh beer bottles.  Click through for the pic.

I hate to go all religious for two posts in a row, but signs, wonders and miracles abound on this great day.

    Somewhere, a vegan silently weeps.

    My god. It’s glorious.

    Interesting how in one post you point out how blasphemous for both baseball and religion for the two to be conflated, yet here you do the same thing only with bacon instead of baseball. Hypocritical much?

      Take things too seriously much?

      you need to find a hobby if that bothers you

      It would be hypocritical if Craig was being serious. Because he is clearly making light of the relationship between religion and…well….everything else, there is actually no ability for him to be hypocritical within this context.

    You are definitely not going religious for me, since I can’t eat bacon.

    And with Passover closing in, I can’t even have beer for the next eight+ days.

    The Washington Post has been for years a great investigative newspaper.
    I’ll take the Camden Giant myself, not today of course, but as soon as I make it to Yankee Stadium South

      Really, that sounds awesome.

      [T]he Camden Giant, a crab cake on top of a hamburger.

      It’s a feakin’ handheld Baltimore style surf n turf! A review from you or anyone else would be much appreciated.

        To fully appreciate the Camden Giant, you have to have an appreciation for Gino’s, the regional burger chain founded in Baltimore and recently brought back in business after twenty-plus years. The burger is sold at a Gino’s franchise within the park (and is the only location you can get it), and is based on a “Gino’s Giant”, essentially a Big Mac (two patties, special sauce, etc.) that was introduced even before the legendary McDonald’s sandwich.

        The Camden Giant replaces one of the patties with a crabcake while leaving the rest of the ingredients in place.

        Oriole Park has always served a pretty good crabcake, considering the institutional cooking conditions that DNC (and Aramark previously) work under. On the burger, the spices in the crabcake don’t overwhelm the rest of the burger, while the Gino’s sauce makes the crabcake taste even better.

        I loved it. Unfortunately as a stadium food product, already expensive, using an ingredient that is pricey, the $16 cost is a bit much to eat regularly. As a treat, though, it is ideal.

        Next up, the crab-and-mac-and-cheese hot dogs–also new this year.

    What’s awesome about the religious experience this year is that Opening Day falls on both Good Friday and the first night of Passover, Clearly bacon on a stick shows that Opening Day wins.

      It is also highly appropriate if you favor the theory that the reason Christianity exists is because some jews wanted to eat bacon.

    Verily, the man did say to the bacon “you are my heart and soul, for I have prepared you in earnest and with great love” and the bacon did remain salty and delicious.

    Tsk tsk tsk.

    When will people learn. Bacon is a topping, like ketchup or pickles. Not it’s own course.

      I hear you Falcon. Me as well.
      In this case though…it is obvious Camden Yards is prejudiced against beef.
      After all…if they had no “beef” against beef…they would ALSO offer beef kabobs.

      • Utley's Hair - Apr 6, 2012 at 3:20 PM

        Beef kabobs wrapped in bacon…arrgh…what …is…this…confounded…chest…pain!!!!!!!!

    • illegalblues - Apr 6, 2012 at 2:21 PM

      look i’m not saying you’re wrong, i mean it’s an opinion and all but i think you need to have a thick chunk of bacon as big as a porkchop. you’ll see the light

    • ptfu - Apr 6, 2012 at 2:41 PM

      Bacon on a stick won’t give anyone a heart attack. Watching the Orioles will get ‘em first :-)

  11. aceshigh11 - Apr 6, 2012 at 3:55 PM

    Bacon in any form is automatically awesome. I approve.

    The solution for peace in the middle east..Bacon on a stick.

    I think bacon on a stick works with the Atkins diet.
