i know there are a bijillion food in the booth posts, but im making another. first let me say that it has always been my policy to ignore no food in the booth rules and have no food on surfaces with equipment rules instead, and im soooooo glad i do this. tonight, we had 2/3 of a pizza pie fall out of its box in the middle of a show and half a bottle of soda spill, luckily i dont allow any food/drinks on the surfaces with equipment, or our brand new sound board would be dead. instead, we had a quick cleanup and a sticky spot on the floor. this is a warning to anyone who is relaxed about food rules, BE CAREFUL!!! had i not made the two people who spilled food during this show keep it on the floor we would have a huge problem. it is not something to be taken lightly, it seems like a stupid rule until you run into a situation like i did tonight, so watch out!
