The Arena has lots of open spaces. There were restaurants of all types from the upmarket Nobu to humble burger pizza and fish and chip outlets. Lots and lots of outlets selling drinks, alcoholic as well as non alcoholic. Aperol was selling their Spritz and they were popular. Beer wine and even Piper Heidsieck Champagne. You could not go hungry or thirsty. We were entitled to AUD 100 worth of food and drink vouchers. There was a mix up by them, so as compensation they gave us AUD 200 more. That was a lot of money. So, to celebrate the Champagne event we drank glasses upon of glasses of Champagne.
