heh, pretty funny
From the comments:
I guess somehow that Arkansas a$$hole is supposed to rep TX, right?
Adam Wexler mentioned on his show that when the players took a tour of the stadium, one of them looked at the concession stand and said "I'd never buy any of that."
A millionaire thought the food was too expensive.
Eh if you can afford to buy into those suites those pizzas are pocket change.
It is ridiculous though.
Shoot, back in the Oilers R&S heyday, we got an invoice from the Astrodome that was meant to go to a large corporation here in Houston. Our mailperson opened it by mistake and we were checking it out before we realized what it was. They were paying $75 for a chicken fried steak, and this was almost 20 years ago!
You are right.
I'm coming from the perspective that my brother sells those suites. I know guys who have bought those suites. To them, throwing down money for the suite was all in fun. For most of these people it is pure throw money fun or pure throw money business. Either way a $90 pizza is ridiculous but to the people in there I doubt they care.
As long as you can get $90 for a pizza, why not sell for that? I don't blame the guy selling it for that much, I blame the guy buying it for that price.
$8 beers, $5 waters, $9 nachos, it's all ridiculous, but as long as people fork it over.......
66 bucks for a 12 pack isn't bad for a sporting event.
Edit: looks like the story has been revised, the pizzas are actually 60 dollars
Apparently there was some misinformation in the original article.
-OR- Someone with the 'Gurls went spin doctor.
Hell a 12 pack at The Palms pool in Vegas cost us $84 and we kept ordering them over a few days..lol
I need to hook you up on some Vegas tips.
I'm not sure if $60/pizza is any worse than the $12/cotton candy that they were selling at the circus. It's just freakin' sugar!
i payed $120 for a pizza and a 6 pack of coors at a ski resort on my honeymoon several years ago. we were so exhausted i've never been so happy to shell out that kind of money just so i didn't have to get up off the floor. I think I managed one slice and half a beer and I fell asleep right there on the floor.
I'm amazed at some of the prices that you guys are talking about!
I was gonna say I need to get out more but one thing is I definitely couldn't afford to eat at these places.
$60 for a pizza really only breaks down to $7.50/slice.
That's not too outrageous considering you're at a pro sporting event.
for that price there better be top notch Texan_Bill approved strippers(female)
it was my honeymoon.
I had to think about and research this one a bit before replying. I couldn't understand why a plain pizza could cost $90 but a 12-pack of beer $66 or $5.50 each. Another article said the 20" pizza cost $60 and included a variety of toppings. How many slices can you get from a 20" pizza? Isn't a 16" pizza considered large and yields about 12 slices? If true, then a 20" pizza should yield 16 slices which comes to about $3.75 per slice.
Anyone want a pizza?
I'll cook it to order, deliver it hot to anywhere in Houston for 60 bucks. Seriously.
I make 'em gooooooood....
