(AKRON, OHIO) April 6, 2016 - The Akron RubberDucks introduced today the new menu and setup for The Game Grill + Bar, and new items for the Extreme Menu items for the 2016 season, which starts April 14 vs. Bowie Baysox at 6:35 p.m.
This season, The Game Grill + Bar will open on gamedays two hours prior to the scheduled start time and remain open after games. In addition to the new menu items, The Game will now feature a Chef's Table, which will have a full assortment of cold appetizers and salads, hot appetizers, entrees with side dishes, and a dessert table with coffee, tea and infused water.
The Extreme Menu is adding three new items: the Meat Your Maker Quesadilla, The European Vacation, and The Squealer. The Meat Your Maker Quesadilla is a triple-decker quesadilla with three jam-packed layers-layer one has hot dogs, Texas jack chili, and cheddar cheese; layer two has hamburger and American cheese, and layer three has chicken tenders, poutine gravy, and cheddar cheese. It will be sold at the Taters concession stand for $15. The European Vacation is a foot-long bratwurst on a pierogi bun, topped with fiery feta cheese spread and roasted red peppers. The European Vacation is available at the Bier Garten for $12. The third new item is The Squealer, which is a half-pound foot-long hot dog stuffed with pulled pork and cheddar cheese, then wrapped in bacon and deep-fried, and drizzled with barbeque sauce. The Squealer is only available at The Game Grill + Bar for $10.99.
The rest of the Extreme Menu includes several fan favorites such as the full-sized batting-helmet sundae, The Screamer, the Three Dog Night, the Nice 2 Meat U Burger, and last year's big hit, the Not Your Routine Poutine. The 2016 Extreme Menu can be found on www.akronrubberducks.com and is attached with this release.
The Game's new Chef's Table will be open for three hours, starting when the restaurant opens two hours prior to the scheduled game time, and it will conclude one hour past the scheduled start time. The cold appetizer table will include items such as fruit, vegetables, and salads. The hot appetizer table will have ballpark favorites such as nachos and soft pretzels. The entrée table with side dishes will rotate themes between homestands. Some entrée options include a barbeque arrangement and an all-American fare setup.
