    • I'm a bad Pittsburgher! I've lived in the Steel City my entire life, but just last week visited the CONSOL Center. I love the glass panels out front facing the downtown area. It gives the building a "grand" feel when you walk in the doors. The building also gives you a false sense of just how tall it is from the outside. When you get inside heed this advice- take the escalators. Unless you are in tip-top shape, the stairs will murder you by the time you reach the top! I love the options they have for food---the cheese burgers were top notch. I've heard from numerous people that there is not a bad seat in the entire arena, and I have to agree. Perfect sight lines. The sound is amazing as the rock music they play during breaks is clear---and loud! I also love that it's nearly impossible to get lost in the arena. Seriously, if you keep walking, it's just a huge circle and you will end up back where you started. Oh, and the Penguins beat the Capitals 5-3. The CONSOL is a wonderful arena that will serve Pittsburgh hockey fans well for years to come. ---- Carmela, Pittsburgh
