While sports fans might not always get to feast on the delicious joy that comes with winning a hard-fought game, there are always crazy concession items to focus on and take part of that losing pain away. Enter the Charlotte Hornets’ entry into insane food concoctions: A burger featuring eight pounds of meat for the bargain price of $70.
Long gone are the simple hot dogs, soft pretzels and other stadium fare — now if you want to drown your sorrows in food when your team isn’t doing so well, sporting venues across the country have upped their culinary game. Enter the new $25 D-Bat Dog: An 18-inch corn dog stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalapenos and bacon, on the menu at the Arizona Diamondback’s Chase Field this season. [More]
Bad moviegoers, you haven’t been spending nearly enough on overpriced concessions. Don’t worry though, AMC is going to make you a promise: if they don’t offer you an upsell on your next visit to the concession stand, you’re going to get a free small bag of popcorn.
After reporting a loss in the 2nd quarter of this year, AMC is doing what it can to increase revenue. Since the business model of movie theaters is to give all the ticket sales to the studios and scrape out a living on concessions, that means forcing more patrons to buy snacks–so it’s officially banning any outside food and drink.
