Cleveland State Vikings and Hot Pretzels

Last night, I attended my first Cleveland State Vikings men's basketball game vs. Valparaiso at the Wolstein Center, courtesy of Alexa from Cleveland's A Plum. She gathered friends, fellow bloggers, and lovers of social media in a pretty "sweet" court-side suite located just behind the basket. The casual suite included high top tables, informal front row seating, and a snack bar filled with your typical sports arena grub.
This food blog may mostly be about the finer things in life, but this is one foodie that also appreciates a good hot dog and the ability to PUMP a mound of nacho cheese over tortilla chips and a hot pretzel. These treats are just in their own category, and are perfect in the right time and place. Last night was one of these times.

All in all, we had a great time watching the game (a winning team at that), laughing at green eye shadow, mimicking the dance team's moves to New Kids on the Block, and even catching a photograph with the Viking himself. Growing up in the Syracuse area and then attending SU has caused me to grow up loving college ball. It's been a few years since I've been in the Orangemen's Dome, so last night brought back great memories. It's almost March Madness time, woo hoo. Thanks, Alexa!
