Are you a big “Field of Dreams” fan, but couldn’t make it out to Iowa for Thursday’s big game between the Yankees and White Sox? Do you regularly dress like a baseball ghost emerging from a corn field, but you never have the appropriate meal to pair with the outfit? Well, today you are in luck — at least, if you live in New York and Chicago.
Crif Dogs in New York and Antique Taco in Chicago got into the baseball spirit (get it?), and with help from the restaurant discovery app The Infatuation, put together a limited edition Field of Dreams-themed Stadium EEEEEATS box to celebrate this week’s big event. Naturally, each offering is pretty heavy on the corn. After all, they’ll be playing baseball in a corn field on Thursday night.
In New York, fans can order a bacon-wrapped Crif Dog that is topped with corn salsa, chili-lime mayo, cotija cheese and cilantro. That comes with a side of tater tots and a drink.
And in Chicago, at the Bridgeport location of Antique Taco, hungry people can order a smoked chicken burrito with beans, lettuce, tomato, onion and chipotle crema. That comes with Chicago-style corn elote that features Nicholas Farm sweet corn with ranch, taijin, and Flamin’ hot cheetos rounding the whole thing off.
Even better, every order comes in a collectible MLB x Infatuation lunch box filled with some extra little goodies to make your Field of Dreams game viewing experience even better.
If you want to get in on the action, you’d better hurry. Just like when Terence Mann walked into the corn field at the end of the film (sorry if I’m spoiling a 30-year-old film), this offer will disappear after the 12th.
