Those lame wagers mayors make with each other before events like the Super Bowl and World Series? Where the mayor of Dallas, say, pledges half a dozen rib racks to the mayor of New Orleans if the Cowboys lose? Well, we have a suggestion for Mayor Newsom for his World Series wager with the mayor of Arlington, Tex.: Avoid the usual Dungeness-and-sourdough offer, and instead pledge a 4505 Meats World Series cooler.
Part of 4505's CSA pickup offering, the cooler contains a beer- and jalapeno-braised brisket, spicy peanut cracker jacks, chicharron bean dip, 4505-made Fritos, “big-ass bag o' chicharrones,” and pork “butter” rillette, all for $55. And since 4505 is adding a new Wednesday CSA pickup location at Local Mission Eatery, this week's World Series cooler contains sweets from LME's Knead Patisserie. For an extra $25, you can kick up to a 4505 Delux World Series cooler, all of the above plus half a dozen beer brats (buns and 4505-made condiments included), and as many Gigante Dogs (100 percent beef links with cheddar and jalapenos).
