These hot dog bar ideas using Nathan’s Famous® Beef Franks and Snapple® Iced Tea is just what you need to enjoy the MLB season with your friends and family.
I love to have parties and celebrate The Big Game, The Playoffs, and the World Series every year with delicious food and beverages with my closest family and friends. The way I celebrate basketball, baseball, and football, you would think I am a serious sports fanatic! To be honest, there is a lot of those three sports that I don’t know much about. What I do know is they all need parties and should be watched with close family and friends. Now that football is over, and basketball is phasing out, let’s talk about the best season, baseball, shall we?
I prefer to physically attend baseball games. They are more fun than watching the game at home. In fact, what I love more than watching the baseball game is the food! In fact, I worked for an MLB team when I was in college, but I’ll tell you about that experience later in this post. I must say, the baseball stadium has some pretty awesome food choices! My favorite thing to eat at a baseball game is, you guessed it,
HOT DOGS! Not just any hot dog, a Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog!
I have been a fan of Snapple drinks for as long as I can remember. We all enjoy going to the baseball games, we also know the games can be in warm reasonable weather, or hot unbearable weather. Drinking a cold Snapple Peach Iced Tea is sure to quench your thirst while enjoying an outdoor MLB baseball game. However, if you can’t get to a game due to heat or circumstance, let me offer you an awesome alternative that you can enjoy with your family and friends.
Every year, my family and I always start the football season off with a tailgate party. This year for baseball season, I’m going to have a party that is just as fun and awesome for baseball. What I decided to do to be different is create a hot dog bar. Have you ever heard of this idea? Let me explain.
Basically, you layout different hot dog toppings for people to serve on top of their Nathan’s hot dog. Yeah, that was a one-liner and pretty simple to explain. There are many hot dog bar ideas that you can create. You can even lay out hot dog toppings that support a theme. My hot dog bar ideas for themes are:
“The Walking Taco” (salsa, crushed corn chips, cheddar cheese, and lettuce).
“The Chicago” (onions, relish, pickles, diced tomatoes, sauerkraut, mustard, and ketchup).
“The Green Machine” ( mixed greens, sliced cucumbers, vinegarette dressing, and roasted pecans).
“Loaded” (coleslaw, crush potato chips, bacon pieces, and cheese).

“Can someone tell me what quarter we’re in?”
It wasn’t until after they all stopped laughing hysterically was someone kind enough to correct me by letting me know that there are innings in baseball, not quarters. Then I proceeded to ask another crazy question, “Well do you know how many minutes are left?” Yep, I just kept digging myself into a hole. I am quite sure if they entertained me enough, I would’ve ended up asking them what number is Babe Ruth.
