PETA Names Citizens Bank Park The Most Vegetarian-Friendly Ballpark For Third Straight Year

Which is not to say the veggie fare is lacking the requisite sawdust-y kick...

From the announcement:
Amazing Phillies Threepeat as Champs in '09 by Adding Black-Bean Burgers and Mock Crab Cake Salad to an Already Stacked Lineup

Philadelphia -- For the third straight year, Citizens Bank Park (CBP), home of the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies, leads the pack in PETA's annual rankings of the top 10 vegetarian-friendly ballparks. This the first time since PETA began the rankings in 2002 that a ballpark has won three years in a row. With the addition of the new Southwestern black-bean burgers and mock crab cake salad to a lineup that already featured Philly-style faux-steak and faux-chicken sandwiches, veggie dogs, and meatless wraps, CBP was a shoo-in.
Good for CBP.

Admirably, the Phillies even include the vegan dogs during their always popular Dollar Dog Night promotions.

And it was actually during a recent dollar dog night that we 1) tried a vegan dog for the first time in a few years and 2) heard the most deceptively accurate description of a CBP vegan dog, proclaimed by a curious non-vegetarian: "ohh, [pause] it tastes like the inside of a home depot."

Which may be entirely impossible to understand, that is, until you actually taste one for yourself.

Where do you find the vegan hot dog on dollar dog night? Do all the concession stands sell them?

I had no idea they had vegan dogs or that they were so vegetarian friendly.
