The "Suite" Life at the Shark Tank!

Not only did I get to see the San Jose Sharks play at their home opener on Saturday, October 16, but I watched the game from the Penthouse Suite! How totally cool is that?!! My friend Joyce has a friend who works for the Sharks who was able to get us regular tickets for the game, and then she upgraded us to the suite. I have to send a big shout-out "thank you" to Joyce and her friend for making this happen. It truly was a memorable event (despite the Sharks losing to the Atlanta Thrashers).
The Sharks host a "street rally" in front of the Shark Tank before the first home game of each season so Joyce and I spent some time checking it out before heading to our suite. I was lucky enough to get my picture taken with SJ Sharkie. Other goodies at the rally included temporary Sharks tattoos; face painting in a variety of styles - with teal paint of course; photo opportunities on the Sharks Ice Zamboni; and the chance to win Sharks logo items such as t-shirts and hats.
We enjoyed a variety of food and drinks (water, beer, wine, juice, soda) in the suite including hamburger sliders, fajitas, assorted cheese, crackers and fresh fruit as well as some tasty sweets for dessert. We were even able to catch the end of the Giants game on one of the two televisions in our suite (the Giants won game one against Philly). Other goodies in the suite included free Sharks t-shirts for everyone, complimentary copies of the Sharks program and individual boxes of chocolates! What an absolute treat!
I am so happy that I had the opportunity to watch the game from the suite and that my friend Joyce invited me to be her guest. What an honor.

Perhaps some day I will watch another Sharks game from the Penthouse Suite (another option for celebrating my 40th birthday next year), however in the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing another game from the regular seats in the not too distant future.

Hoping that you are enjoying the weekend. It's cloudy and drizzly here in the Bay Area - it definitely feels like an autumn day. I'm off to take care of some things so that I can get ready to watch the Giants play tonight against Philadelphia. The Giants are getting closer to being in the World Series!

Leaving you with a fun hockey saying:
-My other car is a Zamboni.
