There will be self-serve beer machines at the All-Star Game
I’m going to the All-Star Game in Minneapolis next week. When I’m there, my company expenses will be limited to flight, hotel and a modest but sufficient per diem for meals and the like. However -- and while I have never really tested this because I don’t do in-depth, shoeleather reporting -- I presume that NBC also has to pay for various costs associated with the production of journalistic content, right?
Gleeman was at Target Field over the weekend and said that they basically looked like the fancy Coke dispensers you’re starting to see at various fast food restaurants. I would hope that it won’t let you mix up beers like you’d mix Fanta and Sprite because, eww, but so far, so good!
The mechanics have a lot of safeguards in it such as requiring you show ID to a real person first and get a pre-paid card with which to fill up your cup at the machines. But the bottom line:
I think I could make that work. Any more details?
Welp, OK, maybe I’ll just watch other people use it while I’m on my way to some of the other beer options on-site.
