Ballpark Village Celebrity Chef Betting Pool Now Open

Share on Nextdoor

Coming soon to a Ballpark Village near you?

Word is that Ballpark Village might feature not one but two "celebrity chef" restaurants!

Whose cuisine will reign supreme just a long fly ball from the home of our ten-time World Series champs?

Here's the early line (odds are for entertainment purposes only, of course):

Thomas Keller, 10,000:1 -- And Frank Gehry will design it. Julia Child, 1,000:1 -- True, she's dead. Still, better odds than Keller. Mario Batali, 500:1 -- If we had NASCAR, he'd already be here. Bobby Flay, 100:1 -- Or you could just pour habanero salsa over everything you eat. Todd English, 25:1 -- The dark horse. Sophisticated, but not threatening. Plus, he's hot. Wolfgang Puck, 10:1 -- A serious candidate. A Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe would be a nice fit. Rachael Ray, 2:5 -- Go ahead. Laugh. We'll join you after we've cashed our winnings.
