New York and Boston Mayor's bet on the super bowl !!!

Mayor Bloomberg of New York and Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston are doing something for Sunday's Super Bowl. After winning the awful bet from Green Bay, Bloomberg has a lot more on the line when the Giants face off against the Patriots this weekend. As is the custom when the playoffs roll around, the mayors of the teams participating decided on a friendly food wager. Here's a look at what Menino and Bloomberg are betting. From Boston and Menino:
100 cups of New England Clam Chowder from Legal Sea Foods
42 pounds of coffee from Dunkin' Donuts (in honor of Super Bowl XLII)
12 dozen Boston Cream Pies and 12 Dozen Parker House Rolls (in honor of Tom Brady's #12) from Boston's Omni Parker House Hotel
100 Old Tyme hot dogs and 100 Alfresco chicken sausages from Kayem
20 pizzas from Sal's
5 cases of Brigham's Boston You're My Home Ice Cream
5 cases of Cherry on the Top Frozen Yogurt Bars from Elan
100 servings of Stonyfield Farm Organic Yogurt

From New York and Bloomberg:
42 pastrami and corned beef sandwiches from Carnegie Deli
42 "Big Blue Cheese Eli Mann-Eater Burgers" from Gallagher's Steak House
One case of beef cocktail patties and one case of chicken cocktail patties from Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill in the Bronx
A selection of five pizzas from Goodfella's Pizzeria on Staten Island
42 pounds of rugelach, 42 pounds of assorted layer cakes and 42 black and white cookies from Junior's
One 2.5 gallon tub of lemon ice and one 2.5 gallon tub of ice of the flavor of Boston's choice from the Lemon Ice King of Corona
100 servings of Manhattan clam chowder and one bushel of Blue Point Oysters from the Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant
20 pounds of "Super Steak" from Peter Luger Restaurant and six bottles of Peter Luger steak sauce.
We certainly know which city's putting up the best goods in this bet.
Once again, Mayor Bloomberg shows that New York has what it takes to beat any city in food betting. Now, if only the Giants can make sure that Boston delivers all that food!
