Meet the new fancy menu items at Rupp Arena this season

If you attend a Kentucky basketball game in Rupp Arena this upcoming season, you will see several new menu items at the many concession stands cafes around the concourse. (We don’t say concession stand in 2019.)

Here, have a look at the decision you will face when needing a bite to eat while watching the Cats:

There is a new ice cream option too: Taylor Bell’s Ice Cream will be sold at two different locations in the lower level. Don’t worry though, Rupp Arena’s iconic soft serve is still around for Jay Bilas and everyone else who worships it.

For my pre-Big Blue Madness dinner I went for the Full Court Press, a short rib sandwich with cheese.

How was it, you ask? Well, the people who served it to me were very nice. That’s all I will say about it. It was passed across the counter into my eager hands with kindness.

    I am noting a disturbing absence of Rupp’s infamous cotton candy. Lila (my daughter), who is my Rupp buddy, is gonna be ever so pissed!

    I guess they just need to add a new cook or better ingredients.

    I thought price gouging for water was illegal?

    You can put lipstick on a pig but it still can’t walk in stilettos and a leather dress

    Lemme guess…most “cafes” are still manned by the Letcher County High School band boosters who can barely read much less “cipher” and it still takes 5 minutes to order two $5 waters and get change for a $20 bill.

      So you’re the one booster from Letcher County who can “cipher”?

      Damn–I must not be able to “cipher.” I coulda sworn that I saw one of those boosters wearing a “Bourbon County” tee.

    Paying for the new chairbacks one bottle of water at a time. Kroger sells a 24 pack for $2.99…Did they take out the water fountains or just add a credit card swipe system and a 10 second timer?

    $5 water and they wonder why families can’t afford to go to games. Morons

      Don’t drink the water, problem solved.

      Well, one thing about UT fans–they’re smart enough not to pay for water down in K-ville ’cause they know that a quart of Thunderbird is cheaper.

    Overpriced and the same thing. What no choices. Pizza hotdog or overpriced candy.
