I’ve heard numerous times about the lack of people working Coliseum events. Last night was no exception.
I believe the final hockey game to ever be played at the arena took place last night. A local business sponsored suites and handed out free tickets.

Of course, why would VenuWorks care about Food and Beverage sales when the City is only giving them 5% of sales? Would that even cover more staff?
