Thanks to the layout shift i'm now spending majority of my con (30+ hours) in Lucas oil stadium. Trying to get a feel for what is available for food options as a dine and dash during volunteer breaks. I've learned to avoid the food trucks I've never walked farther south than the Omni so looking for ideas.
The questions is when and how long do you have. Unless it has changed in the last two years I have not been, there is a Hooters on 25 W Georgia St, just a couple of blocks away that I seems to miss a lot of the Gen Con crowd.
I went to a cafeteria/deli called shapiro's that was fantastic a few blocks south of there. I will be going again, too!
Google is showing me a few spots I never knew existed, like the "Tavern on South" in the Holiday Inn Express immediately west of the stadium (FYI, I tend to abbreviate Lucas Oil's name as "LOS"). I don't know if it's any good, but it's showing up on Google Maps.
Really, though, there's plenty of decent stuff not too far north. Both Claddagh Irish Pub and The Old Spaghetti Factory are not too far from there, just a few blocks north and east of LOS.
There's a place I've heard of but have never gone too that's directly east of LOS: The Slippery Noodle Inn. I don't know anything about its food, but I've never heard bad things about the business itself. On the contrary, it seems to be a well respected spot by locals.
Whoa, somehow this double posted. Duplicate erased.
Thanks for the suggestions, my google fu must be week today. Looking for something i can grab and walk back to stadium between volunteer shifts and dungeon runs (40-60min time window). With 1st year for TD moving over there all my muscle memory and normal routines likely need changed.
The restaurant in the Crowne Plaza will do carry out. They're not bad, but a bit overpriced. They are close, which is nice.
Slippery Noodle was good a few years back when I was there
Something to think about are places that allow you to call in or email in your order for pick-up, it can save time. the problem is you are going to have to check the web sites for that info but you can do that ahead of time and have it ready for Gen Con.
Oh, Mother of God, why would I White Castle myself on vacation? I'd end up spending half my con hours in the bathroom if I ever did that! ;)
Oh, there's an Arby's right there, that might help you out. It's maybe a block away.
