Had a really great time, right on top of the action, seated in the L section. Easy to follow, Mccray's Seafood II Food Truck was fantastic. Beverage lines were not long, very easy to park. Just a lot of fun, very enjoyable late afternoon.

I would go more often if I lived nearby, but I wouldn't miss the annual match between US and Italy! It is so much fun, and the Pavilion offers great a great view with inexpensive cocktails while you enjoy the game.
