Is there anywhere relatively close (within 20 minutes or so) to arena where you would recommend eating before the game? I'm a huge fan of pizza and if there is anywhere that has pizza to absolutely rave about, that would be awesome.
It's an Italian (obviously) restaurant just a couple minutes(blocks) from the stadium that has VERY good pizza. Cheesesteaks are underrated as well. It's in the same shopping center as Chickie and Pete's, the enormous sports bar that's a good place to hang as well for a couple pregame brews.
