An Economic Analysis of Gluttony

Earlier this month the Dodgers announced that for the coming year the Right Field Pavilion would become the "All You Can Eat" Pavilion. For $35 in advance, or $40 the day of, you can eat like a pig for 3.5 hours (1.5 hours before game time through two hours into the game). I thought I'd take a look at this promotion, and see if it's really all that it's cracked up to be.

So let's say that you and your friends looked ahead, and bought tickets ahead of time. Parking last year cost $10, so let's say you split that between you and a friend. You've now spent $40 on the ticket and parking. A ticket in the left field pavilion costs $6, so in order to break even you've got to eat $34 worth of food. I hope you're hungry!

I've listed the menu below with my estimated prices (what I remember them costing last year).

All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion Menu:

• Dodger Dogs - $5
• Nachos - $4
• Peanuts - $3
• Popcorn - $3
• Coca-Cola products - $4
• Water - $4

Menu items available for purchase:
Beer, Ice Cream, and Candy.


In order to eat your way to the magic number, you'd need to eat something similar to the following combination
3 Dodger Dogs, 2 Sodas, 1 Nachos, 1 Peanuts, 1 Cotton Candy,


So, who is this a good deal for? Probably not the fans. The average fan is unlikely to be able to eat that much. Combined with the fact that they'll be sitting in the worst seats in the stadium, it seems like a foolish venture for most fans. Unless you're ad admirer of Kobayashi. In that case, bon appetit! That being said, there is a novelty aspect to it, and for that reason I could easily see the Lion In Oil writers taking a field trip there at some point (it should be noted that this is an even worse deal for the Kaiserman).

The real winner in all of this are the Dodgers. They'll likely make a killing on the tickets sold, while finding a way to put a new spin on the least desirable seats in the stadium. They also wont have to close down a pavilion for the lesser attended games, avoiding an embarrassing sight on TV. The real lesson here is - if you're hungry this summer, head down to Chavez Ravine.
______________________________________________

In other Dodger news, the team has announced their promotional schedule for the coming season. The promotions are for the most part the same as usual (rally towels, blankets, etc). But they have added one awesome feature to this year's schedule - the Fans Vote Bobblehead! The fans will be able to vote on which player they'd like to have on the last bobblehead giveaway of the year. I think this is a genius idea, and it really makes the team look good. For the record, Fun Sheriff voted for the Derek Lowe bobblehead, complete with his authentic stench of liquor, and holding a photo of Carolyn Hughes. The contest ends in early April.
