Pirates announce new All-You-Can-Eat section for 2008 season
The Pittsburgh Pirates today announced they will offer an All-You-Can-Eat seating section during specific games for the 2008 season. Fans will have an opportunity to buy tickets for the All-You-Can-Eat section for every Sunday through Thursday home game, excluding Opening Day.
The All-You-Can-Eat seating sections will be in the outfield reserved seats starting with section 147 and moving to section 146 based on demand. Menu items include: hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, salads, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream and soda.
In addition, the North Shore Refreshments concession stand on the Riverwalk will be exclusively dedicated to all-you-can-eat seat holders to ensure a "speed line" approach. A maximum of four of each item per trip to the dedicated concession stand will apply. Water and adult beverages will be available for purchase at nearby concession stands.
"This concept has proven to be very popular in other ballparks and will provide a built-in value and convenience for our fans, especially for families and group outings," said Pirates President Frank Coonelly. "This is another example of us enhancing the alternatives available to our fans at PNC Park, already the best family-friendly, entertainment value in the region."
Wristbands will be distributed to ticket buyers on game day at a kiosk located on the Riverwalk near the All-You-Can-Eat concessions area.
Pricing for the All-You-Can-Eat seating section is as follows:
|SINGLE GAME|| $35|| $40|
