While food prices at most big-time sports events cost a pretty penny, you pay a pittance at the Masters.
Sandwiches range from $1.50 to $3, beverages from $1.50 (soft drink) to $4 (imported beer), and snacks from $1 to $2. Good golly, Masters Molly, you can’t get a decent sandwich and drink anywhere on the planet for under $10.
The Masters dishes up tasty fare, too, good enough to satisfy this pedestrian palate. We wolfed down the Masters classic, a pimento cheese sandwich, along with an egg salad sandwich, washed down with Diet Coke chasers. Total bill for our twosome: $6. I passed on dessert, the Georgia Peach Ice Cream Sandwich, for an extra two bucks. A blogger has to maintain his figure, after all.
Cheap eats, yes. Our fat wallets lost their load, however, after a visit to the Masters merchandise area. The continuous cha-chings of the cash register still ring in my head a year later. But you can’t leave the Masters without souvenirs, right? Bottom line: Lunch, $6; Masters merchandise, several hundred dollars.
