Florida Panthers Bring “Actual” Kosher Food Back to the BB&T Center

After last years playoff run, the Florida Panthers have an arena with a new name (the BB&T Center, formerly the Bank Atlantic Center) and a new menu at their Kosher food stand (see picture). The Florida Panthers have had Kosher food available at home games for a couple of years now, but last year, during the playoffs, they ended up serving “Kosher Style” food at the kosher kiosk.

After an deluge of tweets, Facebook posts, blog posts, letters, and phone calls to the Panthers and their front office, the Panthers have brought back actual kosher food to their kosher food stand under the ORB hechsher.

Prices have increased since last year (about a $1 increase) but is on par with the other concession stands at the arena.

The stand is obviously NOT open for Friday night and Saturday afternoon games, but it is also NOT open for Saturday Night games.

There is also a maariv at the stand between the 2nd and 3rd period, though that is minyan permitting.

If you are planning to attend a Panthers game this season, just remember that they are now charging for parking – $20 per car. Something they have never done before during the regular season.

    It would be helpful to post a location of where the stadium is. Just a thought!

      Harris, my assumption was that if you had tickets to attend a game here, you’d better know how to get there!

    Last night at the game, I purchased some food here:

    4 Sushi (my kids love sushi)
    1 Polish sausage
    1 Hot dog

    The hot dog and sausage were pretty good, in a real bun, and were quite tasty. I added ketchup to the hot dog (kids like that for some reason) and mustard and sauerkraut to the sausage. Really the sausage and the hot dog seemed quite alike. The sushi was just okay, my wife said it had too much rice, and one daughter said it was missing avocado.

    And, yes, the prices are slightly higher than the photo above. My 6 items came to $70 in total, but I forgot to snap a new photo of the price list.
