Once upon a time, long long ago, I went to the box office and asked about seating and the response I got is, "there isn't a bad seat in the Bear's den" and it's sooo true! For true Miner-ball fans, this center is known as the "Bear's Den" and it does not disappoint! Go for a concert, an opera, a sports event, whatever your fancy may be and know you will have an excellent seat. The arena is like any other you may attend but still within a manageable size that you can't get lost and you are guaranteed to have a great time. The seats are comfortable, new highlight screens have been put up, which is a double edge sword. The individual player stats have been removed but overall team stats are there now...I kind of liked the individual stats :-( Concessions are located throughout the place and I would highly recommend you try the kettle corn that is sold at every event! It's sooo addicting and you really can't stop eating it, plus free samples are given out to really hook you in for a purchase. You can expect the typical concession sales, with typical concession prices, but there are usually local vendors at the main entrance that will sell you some delicious food for almost the same price as you'd pay at the restaurant. So basically restaurant quality food in an arena... So grab a ticket, find your seat, pay homage to the Bear and the ONLY Texas University to be NCAA basketball champions, enjoy the show, and if you're driving to the hoop, you better do it strong because a weak drive won't fly IN THE BEAR'S DEN!! Go MINERS!! PICKS UP!!!
