NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has announced what’s at stake in his bet with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee on the outcome of Saturday’s NFL playoff game between the Saints and the 49ers.

Landrieu’s office says Lee is prepared to offer up Dungeness crab, sourdough bread, Anchor Steam beer, regional wine and other San Francisco paraphernalia if the Saints win.

Landrieu is putting up fresh Louisiana seafood, a king cake, New Orleans music, Abita Beer, Tabasco Sauce and other New Orleans goods.

Landrieu also plans to invite Lee to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and many other events the city will host in the next 15 months, including the NCAA Men’s Final Four, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Essence Music Festival and the 2013 Super Bowl.
