$7 Million To Improve Food, Beer Service

May 6th, 2014

bucs-cheerleaders2For those who can’t stand gameday lines in the sweltering heat and having their most tantalizing food option being a giant turkey leg, great news has arrived.

The Buccaneers announced yesterday that the team is funding a $7 million overhaul of main concourse concession stands and adding four “beverage stations” called “Swashbucker Bar” in each corner of the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway. Food variety will be enhanced significantly as a result, per the team’s news release.

(No details yet on how you can order a sweaty cheerleader to your seat for visual enjoyment.)

Joe applauds Team Glazer for these moves, which are expected to be completed before the preseason and, hopefully, are part of a bigger push to bring the Super Bowl back to Tampa.

Joe suspects the easier beer gathering will help the Bucs’ 12th man reach its potential. That’s a good thing.

    Very quiet on the number one priority at RJS; the upgrade to the replay boards. I think we’re headed for a fight to see who pays for that one between the team and the Sports Authority. Any whispers on that front Joe?

    Maybe trying to entice the other owners on a superbowl bid as well, good job glazers! Go bucs!

    Have you happened to see what the Jags are doing currently with their stadium? The Largest video screens I believe in the world, a fan section with pools, shaded areas, etc. It’s amazing to check out in their site. It’s embarrassing that our video screens and sound haven’t been updated by now. At the time of Ray Jay opening up they had the only LCD video monitors in the world or something to that effect.

    Visual enjoyment? Meh. Manual enjoyment…that’s the next phase of evolution in stadium experience enhancement. If they can legalize pot why not the oldest profession known to man?

    So what will this new and improved beer cost?

    It was never the FOOD I had a problem with.

    At least TWICE A YEAR there are some malfunctions that completely screwed up concessions. Last year I can remember an instance where all CC machines went down and it was cash only (I want to say it was the 1st preseason game) and one other game I remember a concession stand being out of ICE.

    That’s one of the complaints that I laugh about when it comes to sports: food quality. C’mon… it’s a sporting event, not the White House Press Corps Dinner. The guy next next to you is eating a Bloomin’ Onion and he’s looking at your strange when you’re trying to get by. WELL EXCUSE ME!!!

    Where the hell are the new Jumbotrons???? Oh wait they don’t sell product, screw the fan….push more beer and snacks. Disgraceful!!

  10. Jim Walker Says:

    They banned bags to prevent food getting in and one year later are upgrading concessions?

    They need more bathrooms for all the fake fans who spend 3/4 of the game in line for a piss or a piss beer.
