Event drinks policy at Canberra Stadium?

By 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?

What’s Your opinion?

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.

The Saffas have a good idea for sneaking grog into concerts, etc: http://www.totpak.co.za/our-products/bottlebox-range/art-of-the-tot/

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.
