Published June 13, 2015

It's been a little over two months since I celebrated Opening Day by trying as many of the new Miller Park food options as possible before my enraged digestive system decided to punch its way out of my body in the hopes of seeking out a more respectful owner. Now, with the help of managing editor Bobby Tanzilo, it's time to finish my mission. After all, there are still giant brats and ham doughnuts to be nommed.
