If you're lucky enough to get to Camden Yards for Friday's Opening Day, look for some yummy new additions to the food lineup. Here's what you'll find:
Crab waffle fries, pictured top: Waffle fries topped with Old Bay crab dip. Available at the concessions kiosk, main concourse; upper deck.
A triple crown sandwich: an Esskay hot dog, bacon on a stick (minus the stick), and pulled pork. Available at Jack Daniel's Grill, Eutaw Street concourse, or as a slider at Dempsey's.
Tako-Korean BBQ stand: Menu items include Korean beef steak tacos, edamame bao, pad Thai noodle salad (gluten free), and kimchi. Location: concessions kiosk, main concourse.
Dempsey's Brew Pub: New desserts include an O's Smith Island cake (an orange-flavored version of the multi-layer cake) and chocolate stout cupcakes (filled with Bailey's Irish Cream mousse and topped with Jameson butter-cream icing and a side of vanilla ice cream).
Elsewhere around town, several restaurants are offering specials as the O's take on the Minnesota Twins.
RA Sushi will again be serving its O's roll, pictured—an eight-piece lobster and cucumber roll topped with fresh salmon and avocado and drizzle with an orange spicy mayo sauce. It will be available during the 2013 baseball season, and diners will receive $2 off the roll ($11.25) if they bring in their ticket stub on the day of the game.
Rusty Scupper will celebrate the start of Orioles home games with food and drink specials in the restaurant's bar and lounge from 11:30 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday. Menu items ($4 each) include: crab-and-artichoke dip, popcorn fried shrimp, Black Angus burger, and pepper-Parmesan calamari. Game day parking validation is $11. Fans who are going to the game and dining at the restaurant can take the restaurant's shuttle to and from the game at no additional cost.
Wit & Wisdom is offering a "burger and a Boh" special for $20.13 all day Friday in the restaurant's lounge and bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.
LAMILL Coffee at the Four Seasons is running a Twitter deal for followers. They'll be tweeting a secret code @LAMILLcafebmore for 20 percent off a purchase.
And if you're preparing a home meal, Ripken Gourmet Burgers are now available in the frozen food aisle at Giant supermarkets throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. The four (six-ounce) patties (around $9.99) named after baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. are 100 percent Roseda Black Angus beef from Roseda farm in Monkton.
