Minute Maid Park is serving up more than just peanuts and Cracker Jacks this World Series!
The park's official food and beverage partner, Aramark, released its World Series menu Monday ahead of Game 1 between the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals. Special items were added to Minute Maid favorites to honor big moments of the Astros season, with names like Walk-Off Nacho Stack and #TakeItBack Totchos.
The company says it will have more than 1,500 people, vendors and chefs working around the clock to accommodate the influx of people coming to Minute Maid Park for the World Series.
