We are definitely digging Toyota Center’s new food service offering known as “The Grub Tub.” This small plastic bowl that locks snuggly in place over a 32-ounce soda cup, with a hole for a straw, is simple and effective, yet surprisingly missing from every sports facility in America.
Not anymore — the Grub Tub was created by Levy Restaurants and is already being eyed at other sports facilities. In Houston, a Grub Tub with a burger, hot dog or chicken strips will cost you about $18, while the nacho and soda is $15.25. They top four different collectible plastic cups commemorating the Rockets’ 50th season.
Pretty sweet….now they just need to sell one with beer. Personally, I don’t mind chugging back a cold one through a straw…but’s that just me.
