Let’s review some foods at the Intrust Bank Arena
While INTRUST Bank Arena for the Morgan Wallen concert, the alcohol in me asked me to have a bite to eat.
Now, before continuing with the review, let’s set the expectations. Similar to most places across the country, you won’t get rock bottom prices on food. Pricing can be a hot issue, but I won’t go into detail as I don’t know the details, margins, etc. about what it costs to serve pizza at one of these places.
When I set foot in most baseball fields, arenas, etc, more often than not the food won’t be a Michelin rated place. It’s usually bar style fast food and I’m ok with that.
That said, here is my visit to INTRUST Bank Arena.
The closest food stall to me was dog hut. Draft beers were $11-12. I already had a captain and a coke in hand and opted for the food.
A hot dog was calling me. It was $4 for a hot dog only. As I smelled sauerkraut, I asked to put this. The lady then called $10.25. Being a blogger and eating out 90% of the week, I’m desensitized to food prices. But even an extra $6.25 for sauerkraut confused me.
I asked what the price was without sauerkraut and was told it was $4. I’m all about the “you only live once” mentality when it comes to food, but even that overload was hard for me to swallow. So I just went with the hot dog.
Come to find out later via a social media post I had on Facebook, the executive chef said this was incorrect. The price of $10.25 was for the bratwurst, which also came with sauerkraut. In my case, the sauerkraut should have been free on a hot dog and an apology for the mistake made by the employee. He even offered to bring me one, which was very cool and sincere. I passed because I already ate the hot dog and had a beer in my hand, but I really appreciated that he took the time to offer it.
As for the hot dog itself, it was plump, cooked well and did the trick before the first opener.
After the second opener, Hardy, we met some friends in the lobby. I was still hungry….shocking, I know. The nearest place was The pizzeria.
They had pizza slices for $6.
I went with the pepperoni slice; not just any regular pepperoni, but the cut ones.
There were over 10 pieces there with plenty of sauce and cheese for everyone which was good. The crust was very doughy but still firm where the slice didn’t bend. Like the hot dog, it did the trick. This pizza was nothing to write home about, but I was satisfied and ready for the headliner.
As for the rest of the night, it was something exciting. From the moment Morgan Wallen kicked off the set with Up down, he had the whole arena in the palm of his hands. We literally bought our tickets the day of the show when we found more seats were open, and so glad we did.
It had been a while since we had been to a concert with a full house. Seeing the crowd, hearing the music and seeing a huge live show was definitely worth it.
