A Chowish Little League snack stand??

Leucadian | May 17, 2008 05:21 PM

I volunteered to run a snack stand for a local LL tournament in June. I know that I have to have dogs, nachos, and chili, or risk being ejected from the park. And sodas and lots of candy of course. But what would you add to that menu to make it interesting? I'm in the San Diego area, so have access to a lot of Mexican and Vietnamese items (and Filipino, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Indian too). The parents are probably pretty cosmopolitan, the kids not so much.

We'll have propane stoves for heat and ice chests for cold. Teenage boys will be serving.

Tamales would work great. Crepes might work too, though I'd have to rent the appliance. Vietnamese spring rolls? Birria? (Wait, I think I went too far.) I could probably make a killing if I could figure out how to make carne asada burritos in this situation, but that's asking too much of the boys. Keep in mind that we're concerned with the profit margin as well as ease of production, which is why the $4 Farmers Market crepe is attractive, using maybe a quarter's worth of ingredients.

Any tips on running a snack stand would also be welcome.
