Have you ever heard of something called the “Stadium Tax?”
If you haven’t, it affects millions of sports fans and concert goers every single year. You’ve probably been a victim of the “Stadium Tax” at one point or another, and you especially have if you’ve ever paid the price of a 12-pack of beer for one singular drink at a game/concert.
Good luck going to watch a game or going to see a concert and trying to keep your money spent on alcohol below $50. Nowadays, $50 bucks will MAYBE get you two beers, when you add on the taxes and the fact that they’ll turn the screen around on you and ask for a tip.
Looks like it’s the same old, same old at the National Championship game tonight, which will see the Michigan Wolverines face off against the Washington Huskies at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
