I try to buy as little at the park as possible these days after growing tired of receiving overpriced cold dogs and warm beer. Is it that hard to get the basics right?

On top of it, all of the added portable stands now do a good job of blocking the view of the field from the concourse. That view used to be a unique feature to the park. It's not the biggest thing in the world, but still...

It's not impossible to serve mass quantities of relatively good food. Taste of Chicago does it every year. Then again, the Taste vendors have a stake in their product. Sportservice doesn't seem to care about much beyond collecting your money. And I guess the organization doesn't care about much beyond collecting Sportservice's high bid.
It was better under Levy. Perhaps Lip or someone can clarify when they switched to Sportservice (whose parent company is Delaware North, owned by Jeremy Jacobs). I want to say that the club level food options are still run by Levy.
