San Jose skating fans, keep warm with hot tea and snacks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend! San Jose has the honor of hosting the country’s most important figure skating event at the HP Pavilion – also known as the Shark Tank. For more information and tomorrow’s skating schedule, click here.
Knowing that the Pavilion will be kept at a low temperature during the competition, San Jose skating fans should prepare with warm clothing, a travel mug of hot tea, and maybe some snacks from the tea party pantry, for the experience of watching this exciting event live. According to the HP Pavilion policies, audience members are allowed to bring a small amount of food and drink into the arena for their personal consumption, although large coolers or other large insulated containers are not allowed. A nice black tea or chai would provide enough strong flavor and caffeine to stand up to the excitement of the event.
