The Stan Sheriff Center is great.  Perfect sized multi-purpose arena located on the campus of the University of Hawaii.  The 10,300 seat arena was built in 1994 and is home to our Mens and Womans Basketball and Volleyball Teams.  There is really not a bad seat in the house here but the best seats are on the floor and on this night we were lucky to have them.  Court Side seats come with access to the Ed Wong Hospitality Suite which is located just steps from the basketball court.  The Hospitality Suite is open to VIP Guests about one hour before the game and during half time.  While the Suite includes a small bit of food you must pay for your beer or wine.  Believe me it is worth it to fork over a few bucks for beer when you have seats like this.  The food in the Ed Wong Hospitality Suite is nothing to write about.  On this visit they served Wontons and Spiced Chicken that I really did not like.  I was craving a hot dog and was denied.  You can however walk upstairs and purchase food or drinks from all the vendors.  I chose to hang in the Suite which is so comfortable.  So comfortable in fact that time flies and before you know the game is starting.  With cold beer in hand we left the Suite and walked a few yards to our oversized cushioned seats which were right on the basketball floor.  What a way to see a game.  Right in front where you can see, hear and feel the action.  My daughter was "in the game" from start to finish rather than burying her face in her IPhone.  She actually watched the game, commented on the plays and cheered loudly alongside her dad.  This was a special experience that I will never forget.  The Bows beat Cal Poly on this night and the players and coaches were thrilled.  We were pretty happy too sitting court side
