    Question about food in the stadium

    Ok, so I never before realized that soft sided coolers were allowed in the stadium. Normally, it wouldn't matter anyway, because I'll just grab a bottle of water and be set, but I'm taking my brother today, and bringing in something for him would be a plus.

    So here's my question: What can I bring in inside my soft sided cooler? Would some fried chicken in aluminum foil work? Sandwich in a zip lock bag? Thanks guys!

    No glass bottles or cans may be brought into Great American Ball Park. Guests are welcome to bring in soft drinks and water provided they are in clear plastic bottles and the safety seal has not been broken. Insulated foam cups/containers from restaurants, convenience stores or gas stations, etc. are not permitted in Great American Ball Park.
    I've seen families with pretty complete picnic lunches in there. Sandwiches, baggies of pretzels, snack packs. Don't know how much "sneaking" past security was involved.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    COOLERS

    They don't have restrictions on food items, at least that I know of. Took a turkey sandwich and a bag of chips in earlier this year, no problem.

    I've brought in footlong Subway sandwiches and bags of chips before, and I almost always would bring a 20 ounce bottle of Coca-Cola or two. Never had a problem. That's one of my favorite things about GABP. Many other ballparks won't let you bring drinks in with you.

    Along with a Subway, I have taken in cans of Pringles many times. I saw a guy in there once who carried a pizza box in.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    At a Columbus Clippers game this year, an older gentleman beside me had a sack of White Castle burgers. I lucked out and did not experience any "aftermath" from him.

    A guy next to me at my last game had been to Skyline and had a large 3 way and several coneys, and his wife had some massive salad.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    That is a nice thing about GABP, being able to bring things in...They will not allow you to bring in a bottle of water at the Jake...

    For anyone seeing the Columbus Clippers:

    CARRY-IN POLICY NO ALCOHOL, CANS OR GLASS BOTTLES ARE ALLOWED TO BE BROUGHT INTO COOPER STADIUM. We do allow fans to bring in food & beverages in small backpacks, bags and coolers. Carry-ins must be small enough to fit under your seat comfortably, and are subject to search. We provide containers at Gates #1, #2 & #3 to check the size of your carry-ins.

    I've sat near people at the Coop who might as well have brought their dining room table with them.

    I saw some dude with a gigantic hardsided cooler in there the other day. Did he bribe security or something I wonder?
