Kosher Hot Dogs Move up to the Super Bowl

CORRECTED STORY: (Ed. Note — The story in the October 15th issue of KosherToday       “Kosher Hot Dogs Move up to the Super Bowl” had inadvertently included several facts that pertained to last year’s Super Bowl. The corrected story follows.) 

NEW YORK -- Football fans that eat kosher and are fortunate enough to attend Super Bowl XLVII on February 3rd will be able to enjoy kosher fare catered by Kosher Sports. The food will be certified by the Louisiana Kashrut Committee (LKC). 

The kosher food is available this season at the Superdome for all Saints home games. In a press release, Jonathan Katz, president of Kosher Sports said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide our kosher roster to the great football fans of the New Orleans Saints.” 

Stationed on the Upper Concourse in Section 537, KSI will be featuring All Beef Hot Dogs, All Beef Sausages with peppers and onions, All Beef Polish Sausage, Pretzels, Bottled Soda, Bottled Water and Bottled Beer. Kosher Sports is no stranger at big events; they have been serving their fare to professional sports and entertainment venues since 2003. 

Kosher Sports is the exclusive kosher caterer at Citifield, US Open Tennis Championships, Barclays Center, United Center, Oriole Park, American Airlines Arena, Ford Field, Ravinia Music Festival and others. 

Kosher food at mega-events has become commonplace. Hermolis Caterers of London provided close to 3,000 packaged meals for the athletes, staff, and journalists of the 2012 Summer Olympics. In addition, kosher sandwiches and hot meals for visitors were available from some vendors in the Olympic Park. 

Strikly Kosher, another sports caterer, offers glatt kosher fare at Yankee Stadium. Most of the stands at the sports arenas are also the convenient meeting areas for minyanim. In Yankee Stadium on most summer nights, it’s the seventh inning! For an even more exquisite game experience, they also offer private dining for suite owners, with an elaborate menu which includes a sushi bar, carving station, and fine napkin and silverware.
