The $$ in actual beer sales is not that significant necessarily, but there are downstream $$ in salty snacks, extra butts in the seats, probably more raffle tix and tribeware sold and the likelihood of the party spilling over into the delis and hotel occupancy (growing the local economy and maybe sponsorships).

Unless you're selling more tickets I'm not sure that's true. That sounds a lot like the argument that building a new stadium provides an economic boost to cities that's been disproven.

I'm sure there are ancillary benefits someplace, but you could also argue that in-game beers take away from post-game sales at the Leaf, cut down on tailgating because of more ridesharing.

The biggest benefit of all this is the potential for sponsorship revenue.

RE: For those proponents of alcohol at Cary Zable
I’ve championed this cause from for years. Let’s not discount the possibility of brightening those afternoons and evenings in the friendly confines of Plumeri! A toot or two and baseball go hand in glove. A cold one or three would highlight the flavors from that fresh Mexican cuisine I hope for. Are you listening Ms Huge? Our local college baseball team has all of this available. It works. Of course we have a lot more Hispanic fans. But you might be surprised to realize how many Latino’s are living in JC County! Viva biesbol.

Oy, this discussion goes on endlessly (on two different threads to boot!). Only one person at W&M can start to do anything about this; instead of duplicating yawn-invoking discussion on these tortured pages,
which read like an imbibers lament, send your comments to Samantha Huge.

If anything were to happen, and our new AD appears an adventurous sort, it's up to Samantha to get it going.

RE: For those proponents of alcohol at Cary Zable
I am not going to send Purdue stuff to the AD ... I'm sure she's clued in to what is happening at the various levels of college athletics.

I'm just trying to pass information along to that portion of our fan base that resides here because information and discussion is good.

That's how this thread started.

If I want to do something about something, I go to the source, through other folks or directly, and advocate for things like Gold Rush, Gold Rush on Charter Day, etc.

Finally, let me disabuse you of your insinuations. I could care less about alcohol. I rarely touch the stuff. That's not the point. The point is that other people do. The point is that other schools are catering to those who do. There's a benefit there somewhere ... sales, increased attendance, better atmosphere, future donations. etc.

If you don't like the topic, don't read the topic.
