It’s the trend that’s sweeping the nation: all you can eat sections at stadiums and arenas. Now it’s here in Philly too. All-you-can-eat sections are opening up at the Wachovia Center for all Sixers and Flyers home games:
* The Flyers are selling 352 upper-bowl seats per game at $66 apiece that feature the all-you-can-eat concept. Last year, the same seats cost $47.50 without food and drink.* The Sixers will make available for each game 932 upper-deck seats at the Wachovia Center’s north end at $28 for groups and $31 for individuals.* Beer is not included. The packages include hot dogs, popcorn, chips and salsa, and soda.* Two concession stands, situated behind sections 218 and 220 on the mezzanine level at the center, will be dedicated to all-you-can-eat patrons. They will receive a voucher and bring it to the game, where they’ll redeem it for a wristband at the designated concession stands. Patrons will be limited to four items per visit.
But if it’s only four items per visit, is it really all-you-can-eat? We smell a Homer Simpson-style lawsuit brewing.
