Roger's Arena, first time going there

Hey guys,

Going for a hockey game on Monday, had a few questions:

- Smoking... Looked online, it looks like they don't allow in/out privileges and there is no designated smoking area in the arena, what the heck? Sounds like an airport to me..........

- Food, how expensive is it? Is it very hectic? Lineups are ridiculous? Should I plan on arriving fed or is there anything actually worth buying/waiting for? I picture myself waiting in line for 30 mins for a 5$ hotdog and 5$ beer

- Between periods, people I am assuming usually have a short time to go take a piss / buy more beer etc?

- Is there a guy who walks around selling pretzels and beer and stuff?

Thanks for helping out a n00b

I usually go a bit earlier and make a night out of it. Go for early dinner at a restaurant because the food/drinks are very expensive at Rogers Arena. Also yes bathroom lines are very long especially for woman.

- Smoking... Yep, no smoking area/no in-outs

- Food, theres "gourmet" hot dogs for $7, a triple o's ($10 for burger and fries), lobster rolls $13, prime rib sandwiches $13, and chips/candy/popcorn.
get's pretty hectic during intermissions so maybe you should leave your seat a few minutes before period ends if you want food but people in the isles would get pissed at you ahah
i don't think anything there is really worth trying besides the lobster roll which is not bad. triple o's would be best bang for your buck for a meal

- 20 minutes between periods, washroom lineups are pretty long too so also, if you really dont want to wait then leave a few minutes before period ends

- yes there are people selling beers in the isles. beers are $7.75-$8.50. last call for both beer and food is at 12:00 in the 3rd period

Wow they changed smoking rules? There used to be a smoke pit

Rogera arena food is expensive. If you want to get cheaper food, head to the costco across and get food there. I love costco hot dogs, fries and pizza

I used to work at Rogers Arena, beer was $7 for Canadian and $7.50 for Pale ale and Rickards. Prices should've gone up.

Go a minute before the period ends to beat the washroom line up

It's been like that for years.... Ever since you can't smoke with in 10' of a entrance way.. You just have to find a stairway to smoke joints in that's what I have done in the past.

As has been mentioned, if you want food or need to use the washroom, try and go within the last five minutes of the period. You'll beat the rush and you can still watch the game on the screens setup in the main walkways (or listen on Team1040 in the case of the washroom).

If you do need to leave your seat for whatever reason, try to be respectful and wait for a break in play before leaving. Nothing I hate more than people trying to climb over me while there's an exciting rush happening on the ice.

The gourmet hot dogs are well worth the price, IMO. The perogy (Glendon?) dog is amazing (ask for a bacon-wrapped wiener).

This. Poutine and a hot dog with a pop for ~$6 before the game, and you can spend what you would have on a meal in the arena on alcohol if you wanted to. I do this for Whitecaps games as well, although it is quite busy when it's game night.

Go eat dinner elsewhere first, then just grab beers for the atmosphere when you're there. The lines for food are crazy long especially during intermission, and as mentioned above it is quite expensive and not of very good quality.

Other than that, washroom lines can be damn long so I'd suggest "going" before you sit.

Also, be prepared for a very tame and un-lively game atmosphere... not so much in the upper section but in the lower bowl it's pretty much all 9-5 BlackBerry drones holding corporate events/outings/meetings. Save your money and get an upper bowl seat instead lol.

Take 100 bucks if you plan on getting drunk and having some snacks. That way, you will only need to withdraw $100 from the atm when that runs out. Plan on taking out about $160 more after you spend the last $10 from that second hundred on cover at no.5 orange.
Try not to cry the next morning when you look at your online banking.

Season holder here, if you don't mind spending some money... the food has improved by 100 folds since forever....

The prime Rib sandwich is absolutely delicious... its few slices of prime rib on an onion bun and some kettle chips!
