Hi all! As the Olympics will open officially in London tomorrow, maybe those of you who are going to events will be interested in the following info. As it is happening in Glasgow it's a good bet the same will happen in London. I am catering staff at the Glasgow Hampden Park football events. Security: it is like at airport, same stuff not allowed on airplanes is not allowed into venues. You will be scanned and bags will be searched. NO LIQUIDS - no perfume, deodorant, cosmetics and similar. NO DRINKS. Once inside, by order of the olympic committee, we were allowed to sell ONLY Coca Cola products, Cadburry products, unbranded Pringle crisps, tea, coffee, hot chocolate. Soft drinks must be served decanted in plastic glasses. As we were not allowed to sell draft soft drinks, we had to decant all bottles one by one, the consequence was a very slow service - try to pour a diet coke, it takes ages as it is very foamy. Food: we were only allowed to serve pies (low fat ones, superior quality). NO chips, burgers, fruit, sandwiches, hot dogs. There was a kids bag including a sandwich, but I'm not sure what else was in it as my department did not sell it. Prices: Water/Coke 2.50 - Oasis 3.00 - Pies I think 3.50 - Chocolate bars 1.50 - Chocolate share bags/wine gums 3.00 Some points of sale only sell the product of one sponsor, so you might have to queue twice, say for a soft drink and a chocolate bar. Once you're in the venue you are not allowed back out. There was no VIP hospitality, so I cannot inform about that. Have fun at the London Olympics!
