I'm headed to Consol...need suggestions.

Me and the wife are headed to the penguin/sabers game on the 4th. this is the first I've been to the new arena. Is the parking the same as the Igloo?

Also, anyone have any recomendations for a place to get a bite to eat prior to the game...preferably someplace within walking distance.

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.

The parking is pretty much the same. The Sooper Bowl is a resturant/bar cattycorner to the lower entrance. Real Good food but it fills up fast. Get there early.

Bucket,
Go a block or two past the souper bowl and eat at the fifth ave. cafe. It's the one with the blinking red light out front.
Better food and not quite as crowded.

Re: I'm headed to Consol...need suggestions.

When we go to the games we usually park at the Locust Parking garage for 10 bucks and right across the street from the garage is a place called "The Red Ring". The parking garage and The Red Ring is located on Forbes Ave, both withing a block of the Console. After a couple of adult drinks and usually a burger, we walk to the game.......

This is a good topic. I'm going to a game in March and I've never been to consol either. I used to park behind the hospital (no longer possible) or at a pay lot further up fifth. Do they still have those?

Thanks for the info gang. Sounds like there is a lot to pick from. When we went to the games years ago we would walk to Hooters, but the wife wasn't as excited about that as I was.

Q2xl, are you thinking Corleones?
If you are looking to wow the misses the Steelhead Grill is good. Make reservations for around 5:00. The place is a little pricey but 4+ stars.
