A glimpse of the menu board at the Oilers game last night. Good lord almighty...and not a damn thing there to eat.
This image is from the Edmonton Oilers ... but since you've brought that up and a lot of us still remember the Houston Oilers ... here's an interesting note I ran across this morning.
I assumed people would put Oilers, hockey, and Canada together. Maybe not.
Man our theater here - they just built a brand new a couple of years ago - decided they were going to provide actual meal foods (chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc.) along with the usual theater food and it's really reasonable. Chicken nugget combo for like $7, which is about what you will pay anywhere. The popcorn and candy is still outrageous to me but at the same time you can get a huge bucket of popcorn for $20 that gives you a free refill each time you come to the theater for the entire year (as long as you bring the bucket with you each time). My wife and I decided to check out a movie when we stayed in Pensacola earlier this year and I didn't realize just how spoiled we had gotten until I went to up there and bought two cokes, two nachos and it was $20.
They just built a Premiere theater/bowling/gaming/restaurant in Pell City, pretty nice and it's overrun with folks. They have one in Biloxi near my son and his family in Ocean Springs, too. Their food is a bit more reasonable than some. The NCG near us in Acworth is decent, too.
