As Tom Wilson reported on Friday, it was starting to get busy at the Reno Air Races… well Saturday it went from “busy” to positively crowded at times. One of those times was around noon when spectators began looking for fine dining options. Not finding any, they got in line for a Corn Dog… yup, that’s a picture folks lines up to buy an $8 Corn Dog.
(And that’s down in the pits, where the crowds are smaller than in the grandstand area! What was it like behind the grandstands? I have no idea, I didn’t dare venture up there. And besides, all of the action is down with the racers.)
Talking with a few folks that endured the lines for food, we found out that when they got to the counter, many had to call an audible and pick something else off the menu because the vendors had already run out of a lot of items. Here’s hoping the resupply shows up overnight. If you’re headed to Stead Field on Sunday, you might want to bring along a few cookies, just in case.
