At the beginning, they had one concession stand open at the media level, with burgers, sandwiches, salads, popcorn, pretzels, fruit. But I guess there weren't enough media to make that worthwhile, because that was closed after a few games. Now we call down to an in-stadium restaurant called "Studio 99," place an order, and they bring the food up to us. It has a little bit more of an extensive menu, which includes chicken tacos, salmon, sirloin, etc.
I haven't been able to spot Blues officials or extras in the stadium. But haven't spent a lot of time looking for them. They're a level above us, so maybe I can't see them because they're right above me.
We come into the arena at a different entrance than the teams and go directly up to the press area.
We stay at a different hotel than the teams; mine's about a half-mile away from where the Blues stay.
My sanity is good _ at least as good as it normally is, which may not be saying much. As strange as this been, it's a once in a lifetime experience. After being cooped up for 14 days in quarantine, I want to be up here as long as possible.
