This is a nice place to visit for an event. Seats are comfortable and access is not bad. My only problem was finding good parking.

Downtown venue. Expensive parking, better to use public transportation. Expensive fast food within, but near many good dining alternatives. Large enough for big concerts or tours.

The convention site was large, spacious and most accommodating. There was not much seat room, but it served it's purpose. Thank you.

Great bout! Hellions won so that is always a plus. Nothing beats going to a derby bout in that arena. A little more advertising and they will really be able to have an event.
