Just another reason I avoid eating at arenas, overpriced and not safe to eat...

Prudential Center
New Jersey Devils
Vendors with critical violations: 6%

Inspection report excerpt: Inspectors noted that at one location, the person in charge "did not demonstrate adequate knowledge of food safety," and the sink lacked soap and paper towels, and there was no sanitizer solution.


Giants Stadium
New York Giants, New York Jets (former)
Vendors with critical violations: 20%

Inspection report excerpt: Managers tossed 20 pounds of ground beef after inspectors cited them for letting partially grilled burgers with raw centers sit at unsafe temperatures for three hours before final cooking.

Izod Center
New Jersey Nets
Vendors with critical violations: 20%

Inspection report excerpt: Inspectors found a seemingly spoiled and "odorous" can of cherry ice cream topping that had been left opened and uncovered in an unrefrigerated storage cabinet.

Meadowlands Stadium
New York Giants, New York Jets
Vendors with critical violations: N.A.

Inspection report excerpt: New stadium. No inspection records available at the time of request.

Citi Field
New York Mets
Vendors with critical violations: 45%

Inspection report excerpt: Inspectors found 20 pounds of grilled chicken registered at 70 degrees in a refrigerator, about 30 degrees warmer than allowed.

Madison Square Garden
New York Knicks, New York Rangers
Vendors with critical violations: 61%

Inspection report excerpt: At one stand, inspectors found "53 mouse excreta" (38 on top of a metal box underneath the cash registers in the front food-prep/service area and 15 on top of a carbonated-beverage dispensing unit).

Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum
New York Islanders
Vendors with critical violations: 0%

Inspection report excerpt: No critical or major violations.

Yankee Stadium
New York Yankees
Vendors with critical violations: 48%

Inspection report excerpt: Five hot dogs registered 91 degrees in a hot-holding unit when they were supposed to be no cooler than 140. Inspectors also had a vendor dump a bottle of Chivas Regal whiskey containing dead fruit flies.

There is some irony in that part. All you hear from Rags fans is how sh-tty Nassau is...yet it is the Garden THE MOST FAMOUS ARENA IN THE WORLD!!!!!! that literally has sh-t in its food areas.

Ehhh....I just prefer to NOT think about how disgusting the food I'm eating and overpaying for is. So long as I don't see them making it without gloves or something I'm fine. Ignorance is bliss

I just assume every place I go out to eat at isn't the cleanest. Since I've been doing it my whole life, obviously the results aren't too bad. Unless I'm growing my own food I'm trusting a lot of people along the way to place my foods safety above their own personal wants and needs. I don't think it's realistic that they're going to be as diligent looking after my food as they would their own. So since all food is going to be risky in some fashion, I can choose to eat any of them.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

If you eat out in NYC you've probably eaten at a place with mouse crap everywhere. Heck, if you eat out in general you've probably been at a place with mice, rats, and/or roaches in the back.

You are probably right. I remember on FOX when they showed Gordon Ramsey visiting restaurants that were struggling and he helped them out, the conditions of some of them were disgusting

my favorite was the verizon center washington DC with 100% of vendors in violation. "Mice droppings, a critical violation in Washington, were found at at least 10 vendors."

Rangers fans will probably justify it by saying that mouse poo is just one price you have to pay in order to have a classy old time hockey venue like MSG.

So true. While good restaurants won't have much of any of those three and definitely won't allow them to get in the food, every restaurant deals with those problems. If you are afraid to eat the food at the stadium, you shouldn't go out to eat anywhere.

All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.
