Where, oh where is the Rollin' Lobstah truck?

The VBC is a good multi+faceted venue for a small city, and plenty of parking for food trucks also. No bad seats in the main arena.

Came to cheer on our UAF Nanooks. Big props to the UAH crowd...for a non-traditional market, they certainly know their hockey. I especially enjoyed the love they give to our military members. Great hockey in a very good venue...and food/beer service was top notch!

Good venue for similar events...adequate bathrooms, food options are limited though. Embassy has a sports bar, they had a food stand in the Center, with hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos and pizza.

Attended a girls volleyball tournament in the South Hall. Although exceptionally large it was a nice clean facility with good access to rest rooms and concessions.

I've taken my family and relatives to numerous events at the VBC, and it has always been a wonderful experience. We seen the circus, arena football, concerts, and conventions, all without any adverse issues.
