I am a Pens fan living in South Carolina (I am PA transplant) and I have never been to a game in Raliegh. Are there any tips you regulars could give me about my trip?
I am looking to know several things.
- How is traffic coming into the game? Is it easy access to the arena, or should I arrive four hours early?
- Is the arena tailgate friendly, I am a Steelers and PSU fan so I have a pedigree to maintain.
- If it is not a tailgate friendly zone, what resturants, pubs, or bars are located with in a block or so that are hockey friendly?
