    Cheapest accessories and food are anywhere but in the ACC. Last Raptor game I went to, I paid $20 for 2 slices of Pizza. Although, if you really want to get some food, the cheapest I saw were nachos, subs, and hotdogs (I'm not exactly sure if there was hotdogs, but I think there was). But the majority of everything in the ACC are priced the same so I wouldn't expect any shop to have a different price for the same thing.
    Also about the pictures thing, I came early to a game before and all I got to do was see the players practice from a few rows above court side.

    Awwww!!!! Its awesome that you've got your first game at the ACC coming up!

    If you look like you're supposed to be there, the first floor exits lead to the platinum lounge areas. There you can find rooms with food meant to cater to large corporate parties. Last time I had a seat at the 100 levels I got free sushi/pizza etc from a room catering to some group from Sony. Someone asked me eventually if I was from Sony, of which I said 'ofcourse!' and went back to my seat. However, if they ask to look at your ticket they will be able to tell that you are not in the seats reserved for Sony, or whoever. If you're stealth about it, and look confident enough like you belong, then you'll be set.

    Also, Players look ALOT larger in real life + its kinda surreal to realize that they are real human beings out there when you see them in person.

    Best advice....eat a huge meal before you go, you dont want to waste your cash inside the ACC my man.

    If you do, you cant go wrong with a simple hotdog.


    And as Enlightenment says, great to go to a game for a fan so you can finally get a good idea just how big players really are. They are massive men. The small ones are big.

    hahaha

    Note about food:

    For the non-franchise places, in other words, the standard concession stands that aren't owned by an external franchise like Hero Burger, Smoke's Poutinerie, Mr. Sub, etc....The stands that sell nachos, hot dogs, pizza and stuff, the pizza is the only hot food made on premises. Everything else is precooked and shipped in. So if you want "quality", either shell out for an overpriced sub/burger, or pick up a slice of pizza. God only knows where the hot dogs come from and when they were actually cooked.

    personally not a fan of those areas. you're basically behind the net with no real angle to see anything properly. but thats just my taste. up in the 321/309 sections with the real (cheap) fans all the way!

    My wife and I used to sing the National Anthems for the Christmas games. We got to go down on the court when it was Vince and Mo'Pete, Oakley. It was amazing. They were absolutely enormous. During the warm ups Mo Pete took a moment to say hi to me. Nicest guy period...

    Fan since day one. It will hurt me physically if they lose to Brooklyn, another team trying to buy a championship.

    Depends on the dogs... If you go to Nathans Famous Dogs they cook em on the grill right in the front.

    The Bacon Wrapped Dogs are delightful.

    Got the whole thing on my camera. A lot of fun watching the guys interact and practice their 'jump bumps' and stuff.
