My wife has been buying rapid tests at Walgreens. It comes with 2 test kits and has results within 20 minutes after taking the test. They are hard to find, but we’ve found it’s a lot easier to find than getting into a testing site.
We have a bunch of those. But I don’t think those pass muster for the stadium.

So it's basically like State Farm stadium is what you are saying.

Right by your seats I found a pulled pork sandwich that wasn't too bad. That's about it though.

How do stadiums screw this up?

Purely anecdotal here, I have a friend who owns a couple Domino's Pizzas. He bid on and got the contract for UNM stadium aka The Pit. It cost him so much, he knew going in that he wouldn't make money, it was basically an expense to him that he classified as advertising. A Domino's Pizza is what it is so his quality didn't vary much but other vendors struggled to maintain quality.

Like everything else in the world, it's about the money.

Im in. Reading Sofi covid rules and if not vaxed then need PCR test within 48 hours or antigen (rapid test) within 24 hours. The problem is that the game is on a Monday and clinics arent open on Sundays to get rapid test. Can go on Saturday for PCR test but thats risky because these testing centers backed up and need results by Monday obviously. The only solution for us ‘non-science believers’ is to go get rapid antigen on monday? Anyone else have any solutions they found? Much appreciated. Thanks

Man with finding a place with testing available, this far in advance and it’s a freaking holiday that’s a great idea with no workable solution right now!!! Aaaaagghhhkkk!
Don't they have the rapid testing at a local Kroger? I know they do here in the Denver area. I think they want about $25 a test.

I'm going to lean towards P&R again. But I see quite a bit of irony between not trusting the science of a vaccine, but then also trusting science enough to let a large Q-Tip so far up your nose it gets close to your brain... so that you can attend a sporting event?

You’re playing Russian roulette if you get that test Saturday. My last PCR test in LA took 3.5 days to come back.

I just wish they put more local flare or effort into the concessions. @ State Farm Stadium (especially in the upper level), the concessions are so generic.
I haven't been to many other NFL stadium but I know at many MLB stadiums the concession food seems way more diverse and local. For example, when we went to a baseball game in San Francisco (Giants), the stadium food had local favorites like Ghirardelli ice cream, Dungeness crab, Street Tacos from Mission District, etc...
Even our Triple A baseball stadium at least has Dion's Pizza.

They have decent variety. It’s the execution/quality that’s lacking. I hosted top clients in our company suite during Cards game in regular season and was not pleased with the food.

Here is an article from preseason:

I never gave concessions a second thought before this last game because we always tailgated with Andy. There was no need to buy food except maybe peanuts and water. Rude awakening on Christmas day game.

Samedayheath has rapid antigen in 30 minutes and are open on Saturday and Sunday multiple locations in California.
With insurance is 20$

They have a free with insurance PCR test <72hr

I have people at work used them recently for international travel and their results come fast even now with the surge in testing demand.
