To Staff: Mall food court open late?

Post by Master of NERV » Tue Mar 03, 2015 3:54 pm

Hi, Staff!

Last year, IIRC, many of the stands at the mall food court were open after hours on Saturday night to take advantage of the AB crowd. Does anyone know if they'll be a repeat this year? It would be a great help to know beforehand...

More like closed at 11:00-11:30 pm. IIRC, it was a decision made by the food court shops.

Oh that would be great! Extra late night options are always good.

The food court is usually never a let down.

Some but not all of the Restaurants in the Food Court stay open until 11:30PM during the Con. The mall leaves it to the vendors to decide if they want to but I'm sure they will.

Agreed, though I feel inclined to let folks know there are two vacant booths in the food court: The first is next to Flamers while the other vacant booth is next to Pizzaria Regina. There is a new cafe across from Olympia Sports' new location across from the other dining area next to the courtyard though. They sell gourmet neopolitan and sicilian pizza by the slice. As for what could go in those vacant booths, I'm hoping for a Dangelo's and a Popeyes' or KFC personally.

...I don't mind asking at the different vendors when I go to the Pru tomorrow if they will have extended hours during Con weekend. I'll talk to the folks at Harvest Bakery, Qdoba, Sarku Japan, Flamers, Ben & Jerry's Cheeseboy, Panda Express and Pizzaria Regina. I'm sure once I tell them they stand to make some extra $$$$ they'll extend their hours ^_^

I got food poisoning from them when I was in City Year 11 years ago. Never ate from there ever since XD

I tried the new pizza place in January 2015. The pizzas are kept under a warning light but they do sit there throughout the day. Perhaps they only leave them there for a certain amount of time though.

Overall I would say it probably depends on which type of pizza you're getting, but it's a fine alternative to Pizzeria Regina.

Here are the special hours on the Con Chowdah for AB2015 so they open later than normal hours to accommodate the crowd. Do not assume the hours to be the same every year.
