We are not just avid Atlanta food enthusiasts. We are also native Atlantans and huge supporters of all Atlanta sports teams. We feel especially lucky when Daddy and Mommy take us to see Atlanta sporting events. Yummy food, happy people, huge TVs, energetic music, no requirement to talk in an “inside voice,” balls flying everywhere while people cheer – is there anything to not like about a sporting event when you’re a toddler? One sport we really enjoy is basketball. Since it’s basketball season right now, and we’ve had the good fortune of seeing our ATL Hawks win a couple games recently, we decided to write a special edition post about visiting and eating your way through Philips Arena with little ones. In addition to our usual descriptions and Gummy Bear Ratings of a few Philips Arena eateries (see “Eating” section below), we’ve included tried-and-true tips for getting tickets, figuring out where you want to sit, parking (cars and strollers), and surviving pre-game and post-game traffic. Hope y’all find this post useful the next time you decide to visit the arena! Let’s go HAWKS!
