    Stadiums not cooking in the kitchen

    July, 26, 2010 By Bill Williamson

    ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” investigated stadium food health procedures across the county. There were alarming issues at the three of the four stadiums in the AFC West. Only San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium didn’t have major problems.

    The following is a look at the issues for each team in the division:

    Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium

    Denver Broncos

    Vendors with critical violations: 61%

    Inspection report excerpt: At three bars, inspectors found fruit flies in bottles of whiskey.



    Arrowhead Stadium

    Kansas City Chiefs

    Vendors with critical violations: 56%

    Inspection report excerpt: One location with five critical violations during its last routine inspection had, among other problems, several hot foods not being held at proper temperatures. Inspectors had workers either discard or reheat certain foods, including cooked funnel-cake fries.



    McAfee Coliseum

    Oakland Raiders, Oakland Athletics

    Vendors with critical violations: 34%

    Inspection report excerpt: Several locations lacked adequate hand-washing equipment.



    Qualcomm Stadium

    San Diego Chargers

    Vendors with critical violations: 17%

    Inspection report excerpt: Food was not being held at a proper temperature in at least seven locations.

    I guess I will just have to avoid the food and just stick to the beer vendors that deliver to your seat, for $2-3 cheaper than beer at Qaulcomm.

    Stupid California laws.

    Of course, it could be worse. They could have dry counties and not sell alcohol on Sundays. :mad:

    Colorado was like that just a few years ago, but it only affected retail stores. They still sold it at the stadiums and other events

    Arkansas got a little better as well.

    Bars are now able to be open and they can sell alcohol at restaurants on Sundays now.

    Basically, if they serve food they can serve alcohol after 12 pm on Sundays. So concerts and sporting events are good as well.

    The most annoying thing here is that I have to buy my beer at a liquor store, rather than picking it up with my groceries. The only beer sold at grocery stores is 3.2% alcohol beer, which is basically crap beer.

    They are right next to each other, and Colorado has some of the same religious whack jobs as Utah has. Luckily, the laws are slowly moving away from that crap (By the way, I am not saying all religious people are whack jobs, just the crazy's who don't want Alcohol sold on Sundays)

    I could've sworn that VA had all state-run liquor stores for the "good stuff."

    Not for beer...but the Commonwealth's considering privatizing the liquor operations too. I'm all for it :icon_toast:

    They changed the law. Maybe as far back as Wilder.
