May I eat and drink in the matted area.

Food and drink are permitted with common sense :O).   All beverages must be in a closed and/or spill proof containers.  Definition of a spill proof container is that you can turn it upside down and it does not leak.   Soups and liquid meals are best eaten outside.   Hot and acidic items can damage the matting.  Notice that the roll up doors leave the building open to critters from the outside.  We have had ants, snakes, mice etc.  Please clean up all food spills immediately and do not leave food or treats in the building overnight.
