I feel like I've heard this one played at the gabba a fair bit. Maybe I'm thinking of Welcome to the Jungle.
Anyway, something like this would suit the buildup in the minute before the bounce.
Can you explain what the situation was?Hi LI. Posted this in another thread. I know the club is not responsible for the catering fails but.......
Hello LI, appreciate your work. What are the chances of opening up more food options at the Gabba? I know we are restricted by O'Briens but their vegetarian options are really limited. We generally go outside and bring food in.
The problem we encountered was the bars around section 61. The boutique beer bars were closed and the lines at the members bar were horrendous. This happened a few games ago when there was an expectation the crowd would be lower (& it wasn't). There also looked like there were problems with some of the food outlets sections 62,63 as we were walking back to our seats for the 3rd qtr start.
We share our crowd estimates with the Gabba from three weeks out til about 48 hours before the game, we had ~24,000 in our final estimate.I wonder if this is another game that we exceeded attendance expectations for catering - there were more than 25,000 bums on seats last night, great turnout against a team we don't normally draw a large crowd for.
I was in around section 73. Long waits at all 3 hot food vendors adjacent plus the souvlaki stand where I waited about 10 mins. Also sold out of pies by half time.
Souvlaki stand??? Directions please. Include a map.I was in around section 73. Long waits at all 3 hot food vendors adjacent plus the souvlaki stand where I waited about 10 mins. Also sold out of pies by half time.
Do O’Brien’s take into account whether they’re catering games around dinner time? Most other games miss main meals, or in the case of night game people grab their food usually before first bounce.
Thought the same thing, they're pretty much just the Roar Deal with the very odd interview.Gday Li it seems that podcast on audioBoom etc have become null and void once again ??
I’m in 66 - the food and drink places were ridiculously slow ... especially between 62 and 66.
