Just visited for the Blackhawks v. Canucks game this February. The venue itself is awesome - clean and right in the middle of the city. The line moved quickly to enter. The 1 thing that surprised me was a non-drinking section. I had never heard of this at any sporting event - well, college maybe, but not for a professional event. My girlfriend and I were asked to take our beverages outside to drink and he showed us the sign. We paid almost $200 each for our seats, so we had to either drink and watch on the tv outside or watch w/ no beverages at our seats. Fortunately, as normal, the good ole' Canadian hospitality helped prevent our hockey spirit from turning sour. The staff was super kind about it all and even tried to see if we could switch seats in an area that allowed seating. Great game though - Canucks won over the favorite for the game. That was exciting to be a part of - also, we were able to take a picture w/ the mascot - also super exciting;) We were able to walk to Yaletown from the stadium easily. Highly recommend catching a Canucks game here - just make sure to purchase the seating w/ beverages allowed if that is important to you:)
