Photos: Cool Food Pairings For Shows At The Hollywood Bowl This Summer

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

If you haven't already bought your tickets for this summer's Hollywood Bowl season, you now have a lot of delicious new reasons to check out some of the upcoming shows.

The Hollywood Bowl has just announced that they'll be featuring a special menu of themed food and drinks for some of their biggest shows this summer. From brats and pretzels at tomorrow night's Sound of Music sing-along to a New Orleans feast when Harry Connick Jr. takes the stage, the venue will be dishing up show-appropriate culinary offerings for the first time ever. The themed food and drinks were developed by the Patina Restaurant Group and will be available at select locations at the Bowl.

If you weren't already looking forward to the smooth sounds of Smokey Robinson's singing, then the pulled pork sandwich, corn on the cob and other 'smoky' barbecue specials may just lure you in. And what would Bugs Bunny at the Symphony be without a slice of carrot cake. Check out the photos below to see what else is in store for this summer's Bowl eats.
