    $2 hotdogs should last more than 18 minutes. Nice promotion, but good luck getting one.

    I haven't seen how good the napkins are here since I haven't gotten anything to eat. I ate before I came here, so not too hungry. Maybe I'll get a cold pop if I get thirsty. Plenty of stands.

    Watch out for drunk college girls in large groups. Easy to spot. Not dressed for a hockey game whatsoever, high pitched voices, and wasted after 2 beers.

    We are always taking applications. You can find them in the guard station, located just inside the employee entrance in the southeast corner of the arena.
