Now that it is the week of the event we wanted to run down some important information with you! First up – food and drink.
Unfortunately, we could not make #FoodTruckFriday work this year. That is a top priority to add next year, but we learned some lessons about getting trucks scheduled and out to the site. As we continue to grow the Bugeater we will make sure this happens!
So if you are competing on Friday you are on your own for lunch. We have compiled a list of nearby options for you to consider. Green options on the map are fast food options. There are several right across the street from Millard West: McDonald’s, Goodcents, 1000 Degrees, and even HyVee. HyVee has good, quick Chinese and other food options that you can eat right at the grocery store.
For meals where you have more time, we have put together a list of options around the school and the tournament hotel you might want to consider. We tried to put together a list that has a variety of options – from sports bars to Thai food to sushi. If you’re looking for unique Nebraska options that are relatively quick, make sure you hit up Runza or Pepperjax.
For Saturday and Sunday we strongly encourage you to eat lunch at the tournament! We will have lunch for $7. That gets you a main item, chips, drink, and dessert. On Saturday the main item will be chicken from Raising Cane’s. On Sunday, the main item will be pizza from Godfather’s Pizza. Money from these meals goes straight to the debate program.
We will also have concessions available throughout the day (water, pop, Gatorade to drink along with food as well). And new this year for Saturday and Sunday – coffee! Scooter’s Coffee has been kind enough to help us out and provide coffee for the event.
Here is the map of nearby places to eat:
