Leaving no hot dog un-turned: AYCE hockey?

Kristin at eager to go psycho detailed some of the issues related to potential ring-around-the-rosie games awaiting (unfortunate) ticket holders that will surround the former goalie judge seats.

Feeling left out because you can't afford that? Don't worry, Comcast-Spectacor at the Wachovia Center is taking care of you.

A limited number of "All-You-Can-Eat" tickets will be sold for the Flyers' 41 home games. That's right, for an extra $20 - 40, depending on where you normally sit in the cheap seats, fans will be making unlimited trips to two concession stands for up to four of the following each time:
  • hot dogs
  • soft drinks
  • popcorn
  • nachos with cheese and salsa

Staff say they're "always looking for new ways to enhance our fans overall experience when they attend an event" and that ayce was a suggestion they received.

While I'm in favor of not having to bleed $$ every time I need or want to eat something at a sporting event, be warned - I will cross-check you if you (a) make me get out of your way too many times or (b) you spill anything on me.

Well, you know, unless you bring me back a soft drink, hot dog and nachos with cheese until I cry uncle.

Welcome from a South Florida Flyer Fan. Visit my blog when you have a chance, it is mainly about the Flyers, but I have some food comments thrown in there. I have listed some of my favorite place to eat in Philly. I also included some places in South Florida.
