The Las Vegas Aviators, the Triple-A West baseball team and affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, returns to the field on May 6, and with the return to baseball comes new food and beverage options at Las Vegas Ballpark, the team’s home next to Downtown Summerlin.
For the 2021 season, concessionaire Professional Sports Catering and executive chef Garry DeLucia return with a new menu after remaining closed for the 2020 season due to COVID-19.
The stadium also offers a trio of smoked sandwiches including a pulled chicken, pork, and brisket option served at Hickory’s portable behind home plate. Four new premium hot dogs join the line-up and include the Aviator beer brat, chili cheese dog, the 312 with a Chicago-style hot dog with a jalapeño cheddar brat, and a bacon-wrapped elote dog. A selection of street tacos will be unveiled this season behind home plate as well.
New desserts include two pineapple Dole Whips including a rotating flavor with fresh crushed fruit and a root beer float available at Chill Out near home plate. The ballpark also has soft-serve ice cream, banana splits, and Aviator sundaes.
The ballpark also will unveil a new and second custom brew from local Las Vegas Tenaya Creek Brewery — Aviator Ale, a new blood orange fruited wheat craft beer called the Walk off Wheat. New cocktails include the Aviator Rita and Spruce Juice. The venue’s frosé returns as well.
Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop and Ferraro’s Pizza Forte also have outposts at the ballpark.
Las Vegas Ballpark opens for the season on May 6 at 7:05 p.m. against the Sacramento River Cats.
