Leonsis first addressed some of the security concerns that plague the area immediately around the arena (like this Gallery Place gang), saying that he had met with the mayor and even the Dept. of Homeland Security and the FBI to ensure the safety of his fans. He followed up by saying that the Verizon Center is in the "greatest neighborhood," (which we of course agree with).

"I hope we can maybe implement a way to order food on their cell phones, so they can just go to pick up their food, through Twitter or Facebook or text.

You may not have noticed the change, since the price of "one beer" technically has stayed the same - $8. This year, you're simply getting a 20 oz. pour, instead of a 24 oz. pour.
