    If you're going to get food, just go big. Get the Nachos from Hard Times on the first floor. Or the wings from the Greene Turtle. Yes, they're all expensive. You should've stopped at McDonald's.

    Something's usually going on around here. Lots of activities, food options and close to the bike share and Metro.

    The seats are a bit cramped in the upper bowl. Try to get closer if you can.

    Went to the last (hopefully just for now) Syracuse - Georgetown basketball game here. Even though the Orange got crushed, I had a great time hear. Definitely would want to go back for more Hoyas games

    Great arena! Had seats in the 400 level. Of course I made the typical “nose bleeds” joke but you honestly still have a great view! Can’t imagine there’s a bad view in the house!

    The best seats are anywhere in the 100's. Anything above is really difficult to see. This is my favorite arena!

    Watching a Caps game live is so worth doing if you get the chance. Best live sport, period. Don't pass it up. GO CAPS!

    On March 28 and 30, 2013, the Syracuse Orange knocked off Indiana and Marquette to advance to the Final Four in Atlanta. It was the Orange's first Final Four since SU's National Title in 2003.

    Don’t be a sucker and get regular chicken fingers. The chicken fingers at Fuku on the 100 level are way better.

    Go to the 2nd level - club level - to get food from concessions. MUCH better food there. Fans are intense all wearing Jerseys but respectful to those rooting for the other team.

    Home of the Capitals, Wizards, Mystics and Hoyas. Fairly new arena, seats are good everywhere you go, but sadly getting pricy (especially Caps), but you will have a good time !!!

    Of course they don't let guests down while the puck is in play. It's called hockey etiquette. Most arenas don't allow it!

    Don't lean because the people behind you can't see! If you're warned and don't lean back, expect an usher to visit your seat!

    If you can, eat outside the arena. There are numerous restaurants, most better priced than the concessions.
