Tuesday, the Tampa Convention Center released some interesting tidbits on food consumption for the upcoming Republican National Convention.

The convention center plans on serving up more than 5,500 gallons of coffee between August 27-31. They've nicknamed their coffee machine Big Bertha, and BB can pump out 110 gallons of hot brew at once.

Five confection ovens at the convention center can make more than 50 dozen cookies in 12 minutes.
One sponsor ordered 300 gallons of milk that week, we suspect elephants like milk and cookies just as much as we do.

The Tampa Convention Center is prepared to serve 5,000 meals a day in scheduled banquets, with a menu ranging from sushi to Szechuan.
