PRESS RELEASE – The Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League announced on Wednesday that the club will attempt to set the Guinness Book of World Records’ mark for the most expensive hot dog. The hot dog will go on sale at the Campanelli Stadium concession stands starting on National Hot Dog Day, July 23, when the Rox face the Newark Bears at 7:05 p.m.
The Rox hot dog will retail at the concession stand for $80.00, and will consist of a half-pound all beef foot long hot dog, deep fried and rolled in truffle oil then coated with porcini dust, sprinkled with white truffle shavings, and topped with dollops of creme fraiche, caviar and fresh roe. The dog will be served in a blini roll.
The record is currently held by the Foot Long Haute Dog, which sells for $69.00 at Serendipity 3 in New York City and was introduced on July 23, 2010.
For fans whose tastes veer towards the more traditional ballpark hot dog, the Rox will also be giving out vouchers for a free standard hot dog to the first 1,000 fans through the gates on July 23, courtesy of Kayem Hot Dogs and Calise Bakeries. The game will feature an appearance by former All-Pro New England Patriot Troy Brown, who will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and sign autographs on the concourse.
Tickets for all Rox games can be purchased by contacting the Rox ticket office at (508) 559-7070, or by visiting brocktonrox.com.
