October 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

BOSTON (AP) – The mayors of Boston and St. Louis may not be making any bets on the World Series, but top officials in each city are.  Boston City Councilor Bill Linehan and St. Louis Alderman Christine Ingrassia have wagered some local delicacies over the outcome of the series that starts Wednesday at Fenway Park.

Linehan has put up a six-pack of Harpoon Oktoberfest beer; an order of shepherd’s pie from Amrheins restaurant; and a quart of clam chowder from Legal’s Harborside restaurant.  Ingrassia’s wager is a six-pack of beer from the Schlafly brewery; an order of toasted ravioli from Ricardo’s restaurant; and a smokehouse specialty from The Shaved Duck restaurant.

The loser must also wear the winning’s team gear their next meeting.
