Is Miller Park Ending Ballpark Long Islands?!
Miller Park announced that they will no longer have a TGI Fridays in their stadium. Rather, the restaurant there will be titled ‘Restaurant to be Named Later’. While it is a fun baseball term, it is a little long when it comes to a name. The video they did to promote with Bob Uecker is very funny. Kudos to their marketing team for getting content out of October when people are still thinking about baseball. But all of this got me thinking about the restaurant itself, and the staple of the Friday’s restaurant was the Long Islands. Are they going away with the restaurant?

While the Long Islands became part of the stadium when vendors stomped and whined about not being able to sell them, they were still a part of the Fridays’ restaurant. I would assume that Long Islands in their current form would be ending but Brewers should ensure that they’ll still have some version of the drink next season. Long Islands were the best deal at Miller Park. Even when they raised the prices to $10.25 versus $9, it was one of the best values in the stadium.
