Yeah, thats how it is every year. Normally they let you bring food in though, so I'll have to look into that one. Last year they banned food and after day 1 they got so many complaints that they let you bring in food for the rest of the tournament. The US Open is probably the highest priced sporting event in the world for concessions, sandwiches go for over $10 and a beer is like $8.

What I'm most concerned with is that the Republican National Convention is in NY next week. Most people, like myself, take the train into Penn Station (or Madison Square Garden where the convention is) then the Long Island Railroad out to Flushing. Its probably going to be a security nightmare in NYC and with all the protesters outside its probably going to be crazy.

The stupidest one is no banners or signs. Every sporting event I know has signs. I also wonder what defines "small quantities". Does a bag of potato chips define "sealed packages"?
