PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — After the inaugural season at the CONSOL Energy Center, the Penguins asked their fans what could improve the arena.
They heard loud and clear from fans in the upper deck about blocked views. Now, steel railings have been replaced by narrow steel and tempered glass.
“And what that did was eliminate any sort of obstruction that the fans in the upper deck would have for their sight line directly down to the ice surface,” David Peart, Penguins senior vice president of sales and services, said.
While prices for the concessions are relatively the same as it was in the first year, there are a couple of new additions.
TGI Fridays has opened on the street level on the Fifth Avenue side of the area and on the city side of the highest concourse is Burgatory.
You can enjoy a hand crafted milk shake and an all-natural burger right in the upper deck and a great view of the city.
But, that all-natural burger comes at a fairly steep price, ranging anywhere from $2 to $4 more expensive than Burgatory’s Fox Chapel location.
Back on the ice, there is no additional charge for the butterflies.
“There will be a buzz in the building, so we hope to feed of that and us that for tonight’s match,” Dan Bylsma said.
