If there was ever a reason to pregame before a sporting event in Miami, it was last weekend. Ticket prices at the Miami Grand Prix were generally more than a $1,000 each but that’s just where things started. You want a few bottles of water while you enjoy the Miami F1 Race? That’ll be $25. Twenty-five dollars for a bottles of water! Rather a beer? A bucket of 16 ounce Heineken was $50. A wine bottle starts at $130. Maybe a mixer? Bottle service for Tito’s vodka drinks was priced at $560. For the price of ONE Tito’s bottle at the race, you could buy 28 bottles of Tito’s at Total Wine at Coconut Point. Here’s some of the other ridiculous drink prices. We’ll get to the food, next.
$275 for nachos. if you’re trying to eat healthy, the fruit will set you back $295. That’s in the hospitality section. Those are the people they’re trying to squeeze the cash from. The VIPSs. And to be fair, that is for a serving of 4. What about the regular people? The people in the stands? The $42 Wagyu steak sandwich sounds nice. Sounds nice.

That’s not Wagyu steak. It looks a lot like Hillshire Farm’s Deli Ham. C’mon Miami. We’re better than this.
I watched the Miami F1 Race at home with a $2.19 bag of Aldi’s pretzels.
