I would go with both YDI and FYL. That sucks for you, easy mistake. But make sure you understand the rules next time.
It's not that easy a mistake, honestly. Outside food and drink aren't allowed at everything from movie theaters and dance recitals to NFL games and Madison Square Garden. That's been the rule for a long, long time. If OP has gotten to the legal drinking age without ever having figured that out, then there's bigger problems.
#15 OP is from Australia, and so am I. I've brought my own food/drink to the football game and to the movies before, with no repercussions. I've never heard of such a rule being customary to public venues. ALCOHOL, however, is a different story - you're not allowed to drink alcohol in public but I'm not so sure about concerts... I know that my boyfriend was planning on bringing some beers to share with his friend at a gig last week because his friend shouted him the last time they went, so maybe it's a rule that depends on the strictness/money hungriness of the venue. Also, the legal age in Australia (and in most countries outside of the US) is 18, not 21. Is it really against the rules to bring outside food/drink to all public venues in America? What happened to the land of the free? :P just kidding but that's a pretty sucky rule to me :/
Most concerts are a licensed premises, and yeah it's petty, but you know there are strict controls about liquor at these kind of events.
Well, you're at least 21, so you weren't born yesterday. You must just be stupid.
You deserve it. if you can't bring alcohol into any building, or food and drinks to the movies, what would make you think you could bring alcohol to a concert?
@#39 - If we are from the same province, those are specially licensed movie theatres. I know I attended one where you could BUY wine but you could not bring in your own. Most liquor licenses ban that altogether due to the increased risk of drinking and driving to the location.
Sorry about your luck op, but it's basic logic to know you can't bring your own food or drink into events like that..
I've got to agree. While the prices in some of these venues are ridiculous, it really is common knowledge that you can't bring in your own alcohol. Along with the prices situation, a lot of these places serve drinks in plastic cups. That way, if someone launches a drink at a shitty band, there's less damage than say, a glass beer bottle, or can.
