What's it going to be? The Pork or Turkey sandwich? You can try them out at Minute Maid
Park and help decide.

They say, free is a very good price. And while, this isn’t the same as getting a free ticket (or a whole sandwich), it’s a great promo idea: try out some food offerings for free and help determine what will be served at the ballpark.

Fans attending Astros games tonight and tomorrow afternoon will have the opportunity to try complimentary sandwich samples at the All-Star Carvery located behind Section 156 at Minute Maid Park.

The Houston Astros and ARAMARK, who is the club’s exclusive food and beverage partner are putting on the promotion. For the first hour after gates open tonight (5:30-6:30 pm) and Wednesday afternoon (11:30 am-12:30 pm), fans will be treated to complimentary samples of Minute Maid Park’s signature sandwich finalists from the All-Star Carvery.

FAN TASTING

During the sampling, fans can taste the ballpark’s two signature sandwich finalists:

1. Hill Country Pork Hoagie: Slow Roasted Pulled Pork with Garlic, Red Pepper & Herbs, Spicy Chiptole Aioli, Sweet Vinegar Slaw on a Sourdough Hoagie with a side of Kettle Chips and a pickle spear.

2. Texas Tom Turkey Sandwich: Roasted Turkey Breast, Pepper Jack Cheese, Spicy Chipotle Aioli, Lettuce, Corn Salsa on a Jalapeno-Cheddar Kaiser with a side of Kettle Chips and a pickle.

FAN FEEDBACK

The sandwiches are vying for a permanent spot on the Minute Maid Park menu. Fans can vote for their favorite sandwich during the sampling or by visiting www.astros.com/sandwich. The winning sandwich will be announced after the All-Star break. Chow down!
