It’s no surprise that the lines for food were long before Mr. Obama’s speech. But once hungry attendees got in line there often seemed to be no movement at all. Concessionaires at one stand ran out of chicken, hot dogs and other products before 7 p.m. mountain time. When one customer ordered nachos, for example, the server had to walk 20 feet back and forth within the stand for cheese.
It was a chaotic, frustrating scene. As the nerves of hungry patrons rose, the servers pleaded for patience. They were volunteers, they explained.
