LONDON, Ont. -- Say this for curling fans -- they come hungry and leave happy.

The crew at the John Labatt Centre has been working overtime to keep the ticket buyers at the 2011 Brier fed and, er, watered throughout the week.

More than 100,000 tickets were sold before the event even started last Saturday, and, judging by the numbers, it's clear most of the fans are dropping a few bucks at the concession stands.

By the time Sunday's championship is over, the arena staff expects to have sold 3,600 hotdogs, 9,000 slices of pizza, nearly 11,000 bags of popcorn and 27,000 cups of beer.
