I usually head to Tampa Bay Lightning games after work. As you can imagine, I’m hungry when I get there. I guess if I had my way, there would be a little more variety and excitement in the fare at the Forum.It’s seldom that I miss a home game so on forty plus evenings in a calendar year, I don’t want to be gagging on hot dogs, popcorn, and pizza – and then more hot dogs, pop corn, and pizza. And listen, I don’t know who decided that Five Guys didn’t belong any more, but those comfort cardiac burgers nourish the heart as well as the soul.
Now, I’m not suggesting that there aren’t enough dining opportunities lining every pathway along the way to my seat. What I am suggesting is that maybe it’s time to look at the creativity of the cuisine that’s being offered. For example, are there enough health food options for the fan who doesn’t want to balloon to 400 pounds after the season?
And as much as I like those fat burgers, I could really enjoy a healthy Subway sandwich. Where is Subway anyway? And my son the firefighter probably wants to know, “Where’s Firehouse Subs?”
Everyone has an opinion. Let me know by responding to the poll below whether or not you’re completely satisfied with the food and drink options at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. And if you’re not, leave me a comment and let me know what options I can recommend in my next email to my ticket representative.
