    Went for IEM San Jose the food in the stadium is extremely expensive but you can play Hearthstone for food if you're good at that or you could just walk 10 minutes for subways

    They don't check seats, so buy low price tickets and find close empty seats as we did for a Sharks game

    The "rules" say no weapons, but knives are okay so long as they're legal in California. That means no switch-blades. Spring-assist is fine.

    San Jose!! Winchester Mystery House! Sharks! A scary place indeed!!!

    No swimming needed here. Most commonly known as "The Shark Tank" or "The Tank," the NHL San Jose Sharks will freeze their opponents at any game.

    When u are in ur seat there isnt a better arena. When they built the arena they didnt think of 1 thing. There is only 1 concourse. Upper deck and lower deck lead to the same concourse. Way 2 crowded.
