Research Reveals Secrets of Stadium Concessions

     For those puzzled over the debate about concessions at the Fairgrounds Arena, you should know Wikipedia has a concise summary on their history and composition.
     Among the revelations are they charge higher prices and serve junk food.
      Here's a picture of one at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, where I am sure the condiments are Heinz.

Am I not going to be able to use my EBT card at the new arena if the junk food rules are passed?

I'm sure we haven't reached out to other arenas to see what works and doesnt work for them..Its just the way little Watertown does business. Others fail and succeed with similar things, but we continue to make those same mistakes to find out for ourselves.
when is Watertown going to get it.
Stop the surveys, consultants, high priced lawyers and gremlins and just talk to our own employees, department heads and try something new, "LISTEN."

The queen and her court say no! Off with their heads.

The queen needs to be relinquished of her duty. That stadium concession stand looks just like the arena. There are/were plenty of capable concessionaires locally who have experience at this. The race track operators, the old baseball guy who has the transmission shop, jeff. co. fair, etc...And it appears none of them have interest. Not surprises. How about an Aramark type organization, but, that would require real equipment. What a disaster.

They are not wrong. Look at their evaluations. They just need a little time and another raise.

This arena has been a disaster from the beginning. None appears to have really done their homework. As a parent with 2 kids in hockey I can tell you that there is not always time to prepare a meal before heading out. Sometimes these tournaments go on all day and you can not expect parents or kids to go without eating at a sports event.

A concession is a necessity that should have been more carefully evaluated and marketed before it got to this point. Someone should loose their job!!!!! Incompetence!!!!!!

COW does not care about your petty problems. The queen says let them eat cake.

Can we all just grow up a little and stop pushing this like it's the end of the world? Given some time it will work out fine. Kids will be eating crap from a vender during a game before you know it. All is good. If some of you had your way we would be having hockey games in a tent. The rec lady was on Glenn's show last night. Sounds like she has the whole thing nailed down twice. Move on and try to find something wrong elsewhere. I think I saw some dirt down on one of the bricks in the square.
