Really cool to see the little museum and view from the suite. I've been to Fenway dozens of times, but 90% of the time I'm in the bleachers or grandstands, so it's nice to see some different areas.

Back from hibernation...have a few more to post, but I’ll start with the newest NHL venue: T-mobile arena in Las Vegas. It’s basically the younger cousin of staples center without three rows of suites. So not really a bad seat in the house!

The exterior features a translucent LED screen that doesn’t really obstruct the view from the inside

There’s a stage and plaza outside for pre game Activites

Once inside, you are greeted with this before taking escalators up to the main concourse

Since it’s sponsored by t-mobile, you can find phone chargers throughout

The center ice seats have a private bar at the top of their section.

The entire top level is a bar, featuring both public spaces and...

Looks like a great venue, kind of amazing that Vegas hasn't had anything like this until now. Between hockey, basketball, concerts, events etc. I'm sure this place will stay booked all the time.

Definitely. Vegas is suddenly the it sports town. Golden knights. WNBA. Raiders. New stadium being built for their AAA team. A USL soccer team that will inevitably become an MLS expansion team since MLS hands those out like candy instead of trying to actually improve their product....

I kind of forgot about the new Raiders stadium being built. Our new goal is to make it to 1 Jaguars road game per year so whenever Jag are at the Raiders we might have to make the trip!

I love seeing all the different stadiums and arenas in this thread, thanks for sharing! Those viewing areas (or whatever they're called) in the upper deck of T-mobile arena is definitely a unique touch, never seen anything like that before in a stadium/arena.

Since I don't follow NFL I didn't know that Raiders are being relocated to Vegas. I know it's more of a common thing in the US, but for me the thought of relocating a sports team from one city to another is just completely absurd.

It's on my bucket list to visit Jacksonville just for the pools in their stadium.

Sports in the U.S. are definitely all about the money. There is no relegation to worry about or historical ties to cities like soccer clubs in Europe. Raiders will move again in 30-40 years if they can't extort Las Vegas to keep the stadium "modern."

I have a feeling they will become the new norm. The whole top deck is the Hyde nightclub and two bars on the ends with those viewing perches. That's a lot of money to be made!

When/if the A's ever get their new stadium within the next 75 years, we'll have to go!

At least they are not alone in the sewage leak department anymore...go Dodgers!

If all else fails for the A's, they should get rid of Oracle Arena and just build the new stadium on that site and get rid of the old stadium after for more parking/development.

In fact, it sounds like they might be going that route...the A's offered to buy the site from the city.
