We sure picked a hot night to attend our first game of the Charlotte Knights. The game started at 7:15 PM and the temp was still around 94, extremely humid, and absolutely no air movement. It was so bad that I really wanted to buy this one vendor's case of cold drinks so I could put my hand and feet in the ice. Hey, first time here and really did enjoy the stadium and game. Now I'm wondering why they want a new stadium in uptown Charlotte.
The main entrance.
The concourse was so clean and enough food and drink vendors spread out on it. I guess what amazed me was the prices on food. It really wasn't bad at all, $3 for a regular hot dog and $3.50 for a Coke. Although I thought that $3.50 for water was a bit on the pricey side, but all in all a family can have a great time here and have some eats and drinks without going bankrupt.
It really is a nice stadium. Very clean and enough staff to keep in running smoothly.
