  • The Bob is an outstanding venue for events and sports. We've attended numerous basketball games here.
  • Traffic during large events is a hassle otherwise, inside is nice, clean, and comfortable.
  • Nice stadium, went for India festival.
  • I have visited the Bob many times. This time for an 87ers game. The arena is well run, clean, with reasonable food options.
  • Cuz my niece became a big girl
