Hockey season is in full swing at Bojangles’ Coliseum and there are some exciting new menu offerings that are sure to tantalize taste buds and enhance the Charlotte Checkers fan experience.

The new five-event Husqvarna Homegrown Series was also announced. On four Saturdays throughout the season ( Nov. 25, Jan. 13, Feb. 18 and March 18), fans can indulge in a special food item, local craft beer and a novelty item to showcase the best in local flair.

Honorable Mention

Basketball is back in Charlotte! The Spectrum Center also has some exciting drink and food options for Hornets fans this season.

There may be a little wait, but it’ll be worth it at the Craft Beer Garden located outside of sections 109 and 201. The local brews – NoDa Brewing, Sugar Creek, Triple C – are always a popular choice. Try to stop by early in the second quarter for a shorter wait.

If you like barbecue, you can’t go wrong with Queen City Q. They’re located by the main entrance to the arena and on the upper level. The Q-Ban sandwich or the Queen City Q nachos are always crowd pleasers. If you’re looking for something quick and easy, a Bojangles’ Bo Box is the way to go for you and your friends during the game. Bojangles has several locations on the lower and upper levels of the arena.
