Start Spreading the News: Time Warner Cable Brewers-Themed Food Truck To Hit Streets of NYC During All-Star Week
To celebrate its role as the designated “Official WiFi Provider” of Major League Baseball All-Star Week, Time Warner Cable will have MLB All-Stars dishing up complimentary baseball and regional-themed food from branded food trucks throughout All-Star Week, beginning tomorrow, Friday, July 12 through Tuesday, July 16. The company will also provide open, complimentary access to its 2,700+ outdoor hotspots in New York City during this time. There, fans will be able to check MLB™ scores and get updates on the All-Star Week™ events, plus enter to win tickets to various All-Star Week™ events.
For those Brewers fans in New York or headed there, the Milwaukee Brewers truck will be at Broadway and 96th Street, near the TWC retail store, on Monday, July 15 from 11am – 4pm ET. On our menu is, of course, the “Milwaukee Brat – pork and beef bratwurst, sauerkraut and spicy brown mustard”. In addition, former Brewers pitcher Jesse Orosco, will be making an appearance at the Milwaukee food truck from 11am – 1pm ET on Monday. Orosco played for the Crew from 1992-1994. He is a 2x All-Star (1983 & 1984 with the Mets) and 2x World Series champion (1986-Mets & 1988-Dodgers). Although he retired in 2003, Orosco still holds the MLB record for most career games pitched (1251).
Donations will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which helps New Yorkers impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Fans can also share photos of their experience using #EnjoyBaseballBetter during MLB™ All-Star Week™ for the chance to win a set of tickets to All-Star FanFest (7/12-7/16) .
And–if you’re a Brewers fan who tracks down our truck, please make sure you email us your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’ll want to share them on the blog.
This promotion also coincides with TWC’s expansion of TWC WiFi™ network into New York City.
