Next, good internet etiquette to refrain from eating food that you purchased somewhere else. Given, meant to eat it somewhere else.
Hotspots vary from place to place. Many offer a variety of food. Others only offer drinks. Others do not allow food or drink.
The menu selection is a reflection of the image the organization is trying to portray. It’s their brand. Bringing in food from outside a hotspot dilutes the brands because it sends a message that another service is better.
