Over the weekend, ESPN’s Outside the Lines looked into the health status of stadium concessions around the country. The results weren’t pretty, but standing out among some of the results (in the bad way) was Chinatown’s Verizon Center. 100 percent of the vendors inspected had some sort of critical violation, with at least ten of the stands cited for the presence of mice droppings, an automatic critical offense. That might make you think twice about eating before you get to your next Caps game or concert.
Other parks and stadiums in the region fared better – not exactly a challenge, though. Nationals Park had critical violations at 25 percent of vendors inspected, while 36 percent of FedEx vendors were in critical shape.
