Love going to watch the Otters play but don't always get a chance to go. I won tickets on Facebook and the seats were great. Beer is pricey but it seems to be at all sport events. Fun night out!

Came here to see the 90's concert. Although we enjoyed the concert the sound was absolutely horrible!!!! Like awful! So much base, could not hear a work they were saying. Was very disappointing.
