Mr. Monkey has tickets to all of the 2010 All-Star festivities.
I accompanied him on Sunday. He went to the Home Run Derby Monday night and will be going to the All-Star Game Tuesday night with his buddy Mr. Denver.
Of course, I was excited about the Culinary All-Star Competition.
Some of the contenders...

New York Mets: Twisted sausage and pepper sandwich, spicy chipotle mayonnaise.
Atlanta Braves: Smoked BBQ pulled pork, jalapeño corn muffin, caramelized onions, cabbage slaw.
Pittsburgh Pirates: Pastrami sandwich, tomatoes, vodka slaw dressing.
Philadelphia Phillies: Summer hot dog, pickled red onions, salsa, chipotles mayonnaise, cucumbers.
Boston Red Sox: Lobster roll on grilled bun.
Anaheim Angels: Halo Dog with bacon, jack cheese, charro beans, Anaheim peppers.
Toronto Blue Jays: Canadian whiskey-smoked BBQ ribs.
Kansas City Royals: Kansas City Stack -- seasoned rib-eye, cheese, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, onion rings, BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickle.

Oh, yeah, there was sort of a game, too.
She not only pitched, but she hit a home run -- the first ever by a woman at this event!
Bo still knows baseball. He knocked it out of the park.
Jon Hamm and James Denton
Handsome Mad Man and Desperate Househusband on second base.
Did A.C. Slater letter in baseball? Go, Bayside!
A little homage to our friend Mr. Cruiser's brother -- he plays Alcide on True Blood.
I can imagine what a hit all these hot dogs would be in Chile - people put all kinds of crazy stuff on hot dogs here. Not sure if you saw or even tried an "italiano," but that's one of the most typical combos and is a hot dog with avocado, tomato and mayo (green, red and white like the Italian flag).ReplyDelete
I think I had a heart attack looking at all the yummy eats. Your pics are great. It's like you were on the field with them!ReplyDelete

OMG! looks like an amazing event... made me drool, as always!!!ReplyDelete
Question: Were you able to eat all that food?ReplyDelete
i am so jealous!! the food looks soooooo delicious..ReplyDelete
and i have to agree with amy.. i thought jennie finch was kendra and had to do a double take! lol
I would enjoy sporting events much more if they all had the culinary deliciousness that this game did.ReplyDelete
Best sporting event ever!! I hate sports and I would have loved that. The only thing that would have made it even better was if there were wild animals like tigers and chimps on the field.ReplyDelete
Some of those celeb baseball dudes look anorexic.ReplyDelete
I always say, I only go to baseball games for the food. Gawwwwd, I wish I could have been at this one! My vote for most appetizing goes to Atlanta Braves...mmm!ReplyDelete
eventhough it might not be the most convenient game food, I'm gonna have to go with the ribs.. although that lobster roll looks delicious, not mayo-y and that toasted bread looks really goodReplyDelete
Those were some of the craziest American BBQ foods I've ever seen! Looked all amazing, wish the stomach were big enough to eat them all in one day!ReplyDelete
wow, the lobster roll!! i never thought i'd drool over stadium food!ReplyDelete
