Beer Is Really, Really Cheap at the Bird's Nest
There's certainly no two drink limit per person at the Bird's Nest in Beijing as there are at every single venue in America. One friend of mine actually purchased eight beers at one time and had the friendly concession workers put them nicely in a box for him to carry back to his seat.
Not only are beers plentiful but they're also ridiculously cheap. You can see my purchase of 6 Budweisers and two ice cream above that came to a whopping total of 40 RMB or approximately $5.75 US. As you may imagine, we had quite the fun time watching Usain Bolt and Tyson Gay run really, really fast last night.
A few more photos I snapped of the Bird's Nest last night after the jump.
As I mentioned about the Water Cube previously, half the attraction of attending some of the lesser known events at the China Olympics is getting the opportunity to enter the amazing venues built specifically for the games.
The Bird's Nest lived up to all of the hype as it was simply an amazing place to watch a sporting event. Not only is the design aesthetic through the roof but the rest of the facility is clean, smooth, and a pleasure to sit in.
With beers costing something around 75 cents each, it's safe to assume we made a couple trips to the 浴室. (see below)
