^^Oops. My bad. Read the press release wrong. Looks like the ribbon was added in 2008.

More Staples Center VIP Level...
Entrance.jpg
The first thing you see when you enter the southwest VIP entrance is a mural of the greatest NBA player ever.
Concourse.jpg
This is what the concourse looks like on the VIP level. A concession stand and a bar. It's not very exciting.
Seating.jpg
Also on the VIP Level is the San Manuel Club. It's the obligatory club restaurant all arenas feature. It's fairly large.
Buffet.jpg
The San Manuel Club also has the obligatory $40 buffet. At least it's good quality!
Bar.jpg
...And the obligatory bar.
Amex-Club.jpg
Right above the San Manuel Club (on the B-suite level) is the American Express Platinum Lounge. It's basically just another bar, except you have to have an American Express Platinum card to get in. Entry is limited to 175 people and it always fills up for Laker games.

Awesome stuff! Glad to see the updates. Can't wait to see more! One of these days I will have to join you. Maybe since we're so short they will only charge us one ticket! ;)

This thread has a very good chance of coming back from the dead after this weekend! As part of my weekend trip to CGA for Coasting for Kids, I will be making side trips to a Giants game (*shudders*) and a SaberCats game!

^Agreed. However, if they ever renovate all the levels at Dodger stadium to match what they've done to the Field/Dugout clubs...it would be a lot closer.

A teaser of what is to come...

Hmm...who is that guy on the chain gang running to get to the end zone?

Without further ado...The Shark Tank!

To be honest, the building itself is far from impressive. I feel the same way about as I do the Pond: arenas built in the mid-90's feel very outdated amenities wise, but still provide a nice atmosphere (can definitely tell the building is built to be rocking for hockey). Kind of crazy to think that a building that is only 20 years old is considered outdated, but that's the world we live in now for sports venues.

On the bright side, Arena Football is still incredibly fun to watch. Even if the production is WAY over the top. Thanks to Rick for being an awesome host for the weekend!

Welcome to the San Jose Convention Center...err, I mean the Shark Tank/HP Pavilion
IMG_20120608_183305.jpg
The entrance to club level is right off the concourse. It's not really a club level, it's just the lower half of the lower bowl. Very mid-90's design.

The Councourse

I did like this use of the space: the double deck concession areas.
IMG_20120608_184803.jpg
I also liked this use of space: Round Table+Gordon Biersch!!!
IMG_20120608_183851.jpg
They at least kept the scoreboard up to modern standards.
IMG_20120608_184159.jpg
The seats are still very much stuck in the 90's. Can't imagine that faux fabric material is fun to clean.
IMG_20120608_185308.jpg
The view from the top: the best part of arena's built in the 90s. Not really a bad seat!
IMG_20120608_184140.jpg
Oh, hey, look at that! There's a team that calls the Shark Tank home that has won some championships!
IMG_20120608_185838.jpg
Around the walls on the concourse is the San Jose sports hall of fame. Clearly someone knew what Brian Boitano would do if he wasn't included.
