King of Beers reigns in the Bronx

I have received more questions about beer this spring than almost any other subject. When the Yankees put out their release about food the other day, beer was not mentioned.

According to well-placed sources at the new Stadium, you’ll be drinking Budweiser. However, there will be “Beers Of The World” stands offering different selections.


One of our readers, Brendan, sent along a note that I wanted to pass along.

His family organizes a yearly 3-on-3 basketball tournament in memory of their father. All proceeds are donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They contacted all the pro sports franchises in the area, seeking tickets to raffle off.

Brendan wrote to say the Yankees responded within an hour and donated some seats. The other teams did not step up. “It is not so much a knock against the other franchises, but it says something impressive about the Yankees,” Brendan wrote.

In case you’re interested in shooting some hoops, the tournament will be at Iona College on April 4. E-mail for information.
