View Full Version : What if.....

What if you know you are going to be spending a day out somewhere and the venue you will be going to doesn't allow any outside food or drinks?
This has happened to me on more than one occasion. It is an outside festival or something, how do you go all day and what can you eat that won't make you sick?

Personally, I would either sneak something small in or eat beforehand and eat when I get home.

I contact them ahead, tell them due to health reasons I cannot eat the kind of food that is at most venues of that sort. Would they allow a special dispensation and if not, I don't go. If I choose to go anyway, I can eat ahead, not eat while there and drink lots of water.

Sneak it in! Bring along a trail mix of dried fruit, nuts, and seeds and keep the bag in your pocket. Tell them to shove it (in your mind!)

My thing: skipping of day of eating.....I don't regard as a tragedy....far from it. If I DO decide to eat....I just eat before I go....and stuff a couple of apples in my pockets or in my coat. Most places don't go through your pockets. If they MAKE me take them out....then it's only two apples lost....and I'm back to plan A! LOL. No worries - eh?

This is going to be a great big event in Aug. at some big event grounds in Milwaukee for a big motorcycle rally. This will be an all day, into evening event.
I have been to other venues that won't even let me bring in my own water. For medical reasons I have to make sure my water is PH of 7, so unless they are selling a brand I know, then I just have to go without.

Big purse and sneak it in. If anyone says anything - I would say that due to health reasons and severe allergies - you are on a very SPECIFIC FOOD list. Not many people will say anything at all -- even security. It is after all-only food and water. If security confronts you - and you take a firm stand due to health reasons - 99% chance they will simply back down. ;) :D
Taking a stand of confidence and that you are in the RIGHT goes a long way!!

-sneak it in (bring a back-pack and wrap some foods in clothes at the bottom of your bag, or
-call them ahead of time as REvvell suggested
-eat ALOT the day before and later into the night, then eat that morning and eat that night
-eat alot the take before, than use this opportunity to do a water fast!!!!
-get a note from a doctor so that you can bring water, for heaven's sake!!
