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 LineupGood for CBP.
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.
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.
