Concessions Saturday 3/10/18?
« on: March 12, 2018, 11:10:58 am »

What kind of food and drinks did the UofA make available Saturday? I couldn't make it, the Crappie were biting...and HY hasn't pm'd me (or sent me a key)- I guess it's all on Levy this year.

Keep the coffee hot and water cold...it got reversed too many times last season

RC

I understand why they chose RC -it's an underdog thing - Coke and Pepsi didn't represent what LR and War Memorial have been through, so they went with Royal Crown.

They have an interesting story - maybe we should do the same in Fville

If so, why don't we fund it better?

I agree...it's strange to me they would make a stadium a memorial and then let it go to shiite....at least change then name - then let it go to shiite

I have an idea:

War Memorial Concessions Training Center

---Where we train the best...and send home the rest

Our graduates are working in top stadiums NATIONWIDE - you want to go to Arkansas Razorback games? We have your ticket! Want to go to University of Miami games? We can make that happen too

I need to know more about the war that is being memorialized before I throw my support behind it. Not sure how a stadium translates as a memorial to war.

In terms of our football teams performance lately, I could see a battle parallel along the lines of Custer's Last Stand.

War Memorial Stadium was originally built as a tribute to Arkansans who had given their lives in the service of their country during the two great World Wars. It has grown, over time, as a living tribute to all Arkansans who have served and paid the ultimate price for their country. Military personnel have been honored over the years through programs, tributes and monuments. The Sturgis Plaza opened in 2008 on the Westside of the stadium as a place of remembrance and reflection. The plaza was the centerpiece of the celebration of War Memorial Stadium's 60th anniversary and re-dedication.

I like that story twist. I have a step brother who is quite a bit older then me. He worked for RC Cola back in the day in Fort Smith I believe. Maybe a delivery driver.  But I still remember him singing a song when I was a small boy to this day, Something along the lines of,,"RC cola, that's a lot. Pepsi cola tastes like slop lol

Looks like War Memorial is Coke friendly!

Concessions

War Memorial Stadium is equipped with 22 open concession stands serving Coke products and wide variety of stadium foods. Vendors also roam the stands with Coke products, peanuts and popcorn.

It a War Memorial to all Arkansans who died in Service of our Nation it also to honor all those who served!

The State needs to pony up more Cash and give the Grand old Lady a major facelift!

Guess they could just bulldoze the Stadium and Zoo and move it across the river with everything else.....

If it's a memorial - let's treat it like one....if not, let's at least use it to improve concessions nationwide. We could be known as the place to go for concession training and development.

Have a guy or gal that has potential, but can't 'cut it' at the Staples Center? Easy, send him to the D league in LR for some professional development... too much ice in the drinks?... lacking communication skills? We can solve these problems in a 5 day, intense training course - that pays for itself (with improvements in operational efficiency, of course)

Like my great uncle always said...."it doesn't matter what you do, just be the best at it." I believe this is a good motto to live by.
