Dodger fans now can change up “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” with some new lyrics:
Take a walk down my hallway
Take a seat on the couch
Postmates and Dodgers now deliver snacks
Just in time now that baseball is back
Baseball fans may be stuck at home, but if you’re rooting for the Dodgers in LA, you can still eat like you’re at the stadium. Postmates announced earlier this week that has partnered with Home Plates to offer home delivery of Dodger Stadium food.
From a Postmates blog post describing the program:
Home Plates will serve Dodger Stadium fan-favorites like Dodger Dogs, micheladas, and garlic fries to go along with snacks, salads, bar, and dessert options. In addition to premium Dodger Dogs, items specially produced by Home Plates include individual thin-crust Brooklyn-style pizza, carne asada helmet nachos, and Dodgers’ blue gelato. Also, check out the family party pack and catering options.
Right now, delivery is only available in the Hollywood and West Hollywood neighborhoods of Los Angeles, with plans to expand to other areas of the city. Hollywood and West Hollywood, of course, are also the neighborhoods where Postmates uses its Serve robot to make deliveries. So your Dodger Dog may be brought to you by a cute robot!
This isn’t the first deal between Postmates and the Dodgers. Last year, the two teamed up for online ordering and food pickup inside Dodger Stadium. But with stadiums shut down, this is the next best thing for those wanting more of a realistic baseball experience while watching the games at home.
Postmates was recently acquired by Uber for $2.65 billion, which could buy a lot of peanuts and cracker jacks.
I say this without judgment, but given the greasy nature of stadium food, I’m curious as to how well it will travel for delivery. Obviously, downing a Dodger Dog on your recliner at home is a lot different from eating one amongst tens of thousands of your fellow fans. But will the food even be that good outside a stadium? If you’re in LA and try this out, drop us a line and let us know if it was a home run or a strikeout.
