Winter Classic 2019: Notre Dame Stadium ran out of food, beer during Blackhawks-Bruins

The Winter Classic arguably is the NHL’s most marquee offering behind only the Stanley Cup, so it stands to reason the league would be fully prepared for the annual event, right?

Apparently not.

According to several attendees on Twitter, Notre Dame Stadium couldn’t meet the beer and food demands of a sellout crowd of 76,126 fans — many of whom couldn’t get a cold beer or snack after the first intermission between the Bruins and Blackhawks.

The NHL announced next year’s Winter Classic will be held at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The event crew there has 364 days to form a proper beer and food order.
