Riverdogs’ taking concessions a healthy step further with sushi dog in 2014

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – The Riverdogs in recent years have taken traditional ballpark favorites and turned them into unique Charleston creations at Joe Riley Park.

This year will be no different. The park is introducing three healthy options.

After the success of last year's beer shakes and peanut butter and jelly bacon burger, the Riverdogs announced this week the newest menu option – a sushi dog. The new sushi dog is a hot dog wrapped in a Nori sheet that's topped with a wasabi-mustard that's a little sweet and a little spicy and a cilantro-cabbage slaw.

There's also a carrot dog made of an herb-and-honey-roasted carrot served on bun with a sriracha honey drizzle and a dose of the cilantro-cabbage slaw.

For people who choose burgers over dogs every time, the park will also introduce a turkey burger.

John Schumacher, the top food man at The Joe, is also bringing in a commercial smoker that allows for smoked brisket, tri-tip sirloin, smoked frog legs, and some specials that he's not giving away just yet.

Last year's beer shakes will return, but Schumacher said their popularity convinced him to add spiked beer shakes to the list. Now the beer shakes will have a little added kick of hard liquor.

The park will also add a new, only-at-the-Joe beer from Palmetto Brewery called the Original Riverdog.

The wine garden will also get a makeover this year, Schumacher said, becoming a Sangria garden and will offer a variety of flavors.

The kids menu will also have a few new items, including a crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwich and applesauce. The park will also have a staple of most childhoods, Capri Sun drinks.

Tickets for the 2014 season are on sale now. The first home game is scheduled for April 7. For more information, call the Joe Riley Park box office at 843-577-DOGS or order online at www.riverdogs.com
