Enraged hockey fans suing arena after overpaying for beer
A group of hockey fans are not pleased with how CenturyLink Arena, home of the Idaho Steelheads, has been charging $7 for a large beer that holds the same amount as a $4 small beer.
As you can see from the video, the large beer cup holds the same amount as a small cup. The only difference is the large cup is taller and thinner.
From the Associated Press:
Four fans filed the suit Tuesday in Boise’s 4th District Court against Block 22 LLC, which does business as CenturyLink Arena. Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William and Brittany Graham are seeking $10,000 in damages.
Hey, $10,000 in damages seems a little excessive. But you know what? So does charging nearly twice as much for a large beer of the same size as a small.
For the record, CenturyLink Arena has announced they will begin issuing larger cups for a large beer, which hold approximately 24 ounces. It might be too little and too late though.
