Twins 10, Angels 9

The Twins played the Angels on Thursday afternoon and I was there to watch them (and eat food). (Mostly to eat food). First it must be said, though, that this game was bananas. From a 0-5 start the Twins managed to tie it up in the seventh inning and then chalk up another four runs in the eighth. The Angels squeaked out one more run before the Twins shut them down, and then everybody went home at once.

It was very exciting! But the highlight for me was--as always--on what I was cramming into my mouth. I declare the Mega Meatball (from Frankie V's Italian) the best new menu item at Target Field this season. It's a ten ounce "blend of meats, herbs and cheeses" topped with marinara sauce and it was quite tasty. At nine bucks a ball, though, I can't recommend it over the Vincent Burger which at only three dollars more is still the most delicious menu item in the park.

On the other hand, the Townball Tavern's new garlic fries did not live up to the hype at all. They were decent and the accompanying sauce was good but there was not nearly enough of it for all the fries. When it ran out, about a third of the way through, I was just eating dry fries and crying with regret. On the third hand,  Townball is the only place in Target Field where you can find Fulton's Sweet Child of Vine on tap. Pick up a tall pour of that one with your burger and you'll be one happy camper.
