For all the true Lakers fans that are attending the home opener versus the Chicago Bulls (and haven’t jumped on the Chris Paul/Blake Griffin bandwagon), Levy Restaurants, the concession partner for the Staples Center, will be offering a special holiday menu including the pictured Gingerbread Laker Cookies. Other holiday offerings include: Garlic and Rosemary Rubbed Prime Rib, flavored cupcakes, a hot chocolate bar and various other desserts.
This cookie makes for a classic collectible and will stand the test of time because we doubt the cookie can be any harder than the batch we got sent (true story, they look better than they taste). I wonder which Laker they modeled the cookie after…Steve Blake? Hmm, maybe Jason Kapono?
Buying the cookie does help a good cause, with each sale supporting local youth and nonprofits through the Lakers Youth Foundation. $1 from every cookie sold will benefit the foundation in addition to the $2,500 already donated by Levy Cares, the charitable foundation of Levy Restaurants.
