No, the City got hung up on stepping over a dollar to save a dime. David S. Howe deserves recognition but as a businessman who shunned the spotlight even he would have told them to take the $1M and let them name the driveway!

Talk about inflation

Shocked at the prices of some of the concessions this year ? I get it inflation is out of control prices have to go up

But then I was doubly shocked when those prices (food at least I think) did not include the wonderful 13% HST

How much does it really cost to make a box of popcorn . . .

They are making it really hard for families to come to the games. I think tonight’s attendance was the lowest ever at the Meridian Centre except for last season when there were Covid restrictions. They have to realize this is not Toronto. At least one parking lot is charging $20 now. Last game the lot was packed but tonight they only had a few cars.

We will pay ANY amount as a 'captive audience' until they see that the fans stop buying. Beer/wine not this costly at restaurants! If someone with a bit of business sense ran the concessions & used 'fan based pricing' you would quickly see a surge in sales.

I have seen a smaller crowd in there, before covid too.

It was pretty poor attendance. I think the Blue Jays are partially to blame.

I noticed that last night as well... the elevated price did not include HST. Well that was my drink inside the MC for the year. I can order at a restaurant and pay an inflated price that is only half of what I was charged. Or I can subscribe to BYOB.

Somebody else told me they cut off the bar at the end of the second intermission.

Its like they are purposely trying to stop people from buying alcohol. Did they get into trouble at the MC with the liquor authorities?

I believe the beer prices include HST whereas the food prices do not

I have not ordered a beer yet this year, and likely will not . . . As bad as the beer prices are my wife tells me the wine prices are even more insane.

Think I will not be ordering much popcorn this year either

Poutine remains my weakness

Actually the food selection choices have gone into the gutter since the first year or two

There really is not much interesting to eat at the games anymore like there used to be
