Event drinks policy at Canberra Stadium?

MrsD1ngo 15 November 2012 30

Last night at Canberra Stadium the plastic lid from my water bottle was taken by security prior to entry. Why I asked?

”Don’t know” was the reply.

Joked about the dangers of plastic lids, then was mightily irked to discover that water and softdrink was being sold inside the Stadium with their lids intact.

Does this mean that the lid on my $2 IGA bought water is a danger to society and should I switch to drinking 2 litres of scotch a day to keep hydrated?

Behold, the Beer Belly and the Wine Rack…

I’ve seen the Beer Belly in action. It’s okay, as long as you use the ice pack add-on as well. Don’t expect the beer to remain carbonated for hours. Holds just over 2.3 litres.

The Wine Rack: it would take a pretty bold security guard to suggest to a woman to show them what’s in her bra. It holds 750ml, but no ice pack.

*sigh* just when you think you’re doing okay, you forget the link…

That is absolutely incredible. Sadly the no carbonation thing is a killer. Maybe fill that with wine too?

It will hold carb, but not over say six hours. What they need to do is figure a connection using soda siphon bulbs to give it a small boost every now and then 🙂

is that a soda siphon in your pants are you just happy to see me?

puts a new complexion on ‘blow me’ when they ask to search you…

Never trust a Scotch named after an Englishman, especially one supposedly lived for 152 years. Thomas Parr (1483 reputedly to 14 Nov 1635).

Yeah, but surely 100 of those years he spent his time being well aged in a barrel!

I don’t know about their drinks policy but they need to look at their sound policy. I went to the Lee Kernaghan/Dwight Yoakam concert last night and we were blasted out of our seats, the volume was so loud and shrill. It wrecked the whole concert.

If you willingly went to see that concert, then you deserve far far worse than that.

Jim, not everyone is into Nana Mouskouri or The (New) Seekers.

Yes Mrs D, you are on the right track…if you must drink water, then it should be diluted with scotch. Your ratio of 600ml of water per 2 litres of scotch seems about right. In scotch I recommend Highland Park 30yo, Lagavulin, Chivas Royal Salute or if your power bill has just lobbed, you might want something at the value end of the market such as Eriskay. Sorry, I know nothing about water.

You ever heard of a whisky called “old Parr ” ?. I was leaving Jim Murphys one day and they had mini bottles for 5 bucks on the counter, so with me crook glasses on I got one thinking it read old port. Have yet to try it.

Agreed.

I always like to go to a gig with a lid or two and get blunted, nicely blunted.

Lol… They take the lid so people can’t throw fully bottles at either the performers or over the crowds and hurt someone… If it doesn’t have a lid and you throw a full bottle… It will be empty and much lighter by the time it would hit someone

Security guard up in Sydney once told me to keep a spare lid in your pocket…

Or if you are actually just looking for stuff to chuck at the people on stage (let’s say it was One Direction or Bono) then maybe just… rocks?

Just the thought of anyone having their bottle lids removed from their possession at an Elton John concert so they reduce the risk of A) someone wanting to throw the bottle, and B) the bottle, having been thrown, actually hitting Sir Elton is pretty funny. Did they have a look at the demographic filing through the doors at all?

Hell, I have an Elton John CD at home and I’m 40. I think I’d look positively teenaged at an Elton concert. I have never thrown a bottle in my life and wouldn’t have a good enough aim if I tried anyway.

Perhaps it’s to foil the guy from the ‘Dangerous Passenger’ thread over there!

How do you hide vodka in lids?

I’d like to say you freeze it but who has a freezer @ -110 C?

When I was at Iron Maiden in 2008 and 2011 I noticed they were taking water off everyone as they entered the hall, so I tucked my two bottles of water down the back of my shorts. And we were the first to the barrier winners from the fan club. If you can’t trust the fan club to behave who can you trust?

It was pretty warm by the time I got to it but it was wet so I didn’t care.

I used to work for Ticketek. It is as xperfect_darkx described – an open bottle of water will make a far less dangerous missile, usually half emptying itself and wiping momentum off in mid-air. We only used to do it for some shows though – so it would seem to be a policy set by the individual promoter rather than the venue and doubt it has anything to do with maximizing drink sales on the basis it was pretty inconsistent. It was so painful too – but at lest they told us why – and most people understood. Maybe the drink vendors didn’t get the memo to serve open bevvies?
