Filet mignon. Monterey jack cheese. Sweet caramelized onions. Secret au jus. All on a toasted French baguette.
Hot damn. The New York Mets sure know how to get themselves on our radar. The team announced Monday that Pat LaFrieda of the famed Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors will sell his Original Filet Mignon Steak Sandwich to Mets fans at Tuesday’s home game.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are teaming up with Budweiser and Aramark to debut the Budweiser Bowtie Bar at PNC Park this season. Named after the Budweiser’s iconic “bowtie” logo, the 5,000-square-foot bar will sit in right field with an open view of the action.

The OC Sports Grill — which judging by the pictures on its Facebook page is one of those “breasteraunts” — is selling the burger for $13.99. That’s a steep price for any burger.
