How long has this place been open serving alcohol? Charged me $7 for a draft of beer and kicked me out when the second half started but couldn't be happier getting a couple pops in.
started either last year or the year before I think
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
Really, why am I just starting to get tickets for it?
One thing that irritated me is they poured a bunch of drafts and the ones that didn't sell they just threw away. What the hell, just give them away.
Only for acc games. Started last year. I think it is only for Coach's Club and up. Can actually get good bottled beer starting an hour before the game up until tip.
Yeah you might've just increased your donation to whatever level they cut it off at.
The timing probably had to do with the Chairwoman leaving.
Smart, good revenue maker. Wish they stayed open rest of game
started last year. Not really much of a revenue producer as most of the money goes to dining/catering services on campus but it's been really good for the TC to get people together before games and during halftime. It's Coaches Club and up at halftime and Top Terp before the game (I could be reversing those by mistake) but another perk for bigger donors.
yes and no. More about the TC trying to use the space for development purposes and getting the max use.
A tip for newbies - the drink tickets are good for the entire season. And the line for drink tickets are usually the longest the first two (ACC) games of the season, when everyone needs to buy drink tickets. My recommendation is you get on line shortly after the 4:00 media timeout of the first ACC game. If you're one of the first few people on line, you can still watch the game. Once they open the doors, get to a register quickly and buy a bulk amount of tickets...10-20, depending on how many games you go to/how many people you go with. That way you won't have to wait in ticket lines anymore for the rest of the season. You can just walk right in, go right up for your drinks, and easily knock back two of them in the time they give you (they'll typically let you finish up until the first media timeout of the second half.) And even if you run out, the lines get shorter as the season goes on, since a lot of people buy in bulk. It's actually a really, really good system since the bartenders don't have to deal with financial transactions. All they do is rifle out drink orders.
100% correct -- there is no way in hell there would have been any alcohol in Comcast during the church lady's tenure....
Her leaving allowed for the flexibility of finding a good way to use an under utilized facility
They should give free beer and wine out in the student section. No hard liquor though that would be irresponsible
I had a Peroni and a Pilsner Urquell before the game last night -- I didn't have to wait in line for tickets or drinks...smallish crowd.

Yep, this is a good strategy that works well. Beyond that, it would be interesting for Anderson to explore how to turn HH into a bigger money maker. I don't know how much the AD take is on HH activities, but if he has not sat down with dining services to see how they can increase usage and payoff for all, he should.

Last night was not that crowded but they pushing for fans to buy tickets ahead of time to prevent waiting. I do not know if this is necessary. I have gone before every ACC game and have had a 1-2 person wait at the longest.
Good lord you people are some fucking alcoholics
Last year. One of the changes after Yow departed. They serve at half time but where is a restricted entry
I know. I never even really understood the enjoyment (or that it's really even thread worthy) the ability to drain 1 or 2 beers in a 20 minute window at halftime.
Don't they sell tickets outside of Heritage at the visitors tunnel door side all the time? It was that way for Miami and NC St. They were encouraging you to buy tickets for the entire season.
For me, it's purely sustainability. I will almost always drink a few beers before the game with friends, and as a result, I'd want to curl up in bed shortly into the second half. The lull between beers was brutal. Now, another beer or two at halftime keeps my body charged and my brain mushy through the entire second half. Yes, I know, just bring minis to the game and mix them with a fountain drink. Fuck that. I give too much money to sneak around like a common thief. I want a nice cold beer or two I can enjoy (shove down my throat at beer bong speeds) in broad daylight.
what coaches club/top terp wants to invite rdurr for a beer at halftime?
I might be bringing a kid or two to Wake. If that's the case, I'll just give you my four passes, and you can round up your own dates. I won't be able to join you...but hey...advantage both of us. I'll shoot you a note prior.
Some choose suicide, some choose drinking.
I'm not a huge drinker at games I attend. I'm usually am too fired up for the game. Maybe I should start the pain numbing
