One of my favorite features of a Nationals game yes I mean the baseball team is after you get food on the way back to your seat you can glance over and see the field. Imagine if we had a spot like that at Capital One Arena.

It would be the hottest spot in downtown DC by far. Imagine looking at the ice, consuming your bevarage and not missing an Alex Ovechkin goal. That's what renovations are about, improving the fan experience.

Leonsis talked about that in a press release:

""This is more than an investment from the city – it’s a true partnership demonstrated by all of these investments which the city has committed to for our fans to have an exceptional gameday experience.”"

Bowser added, "We are going to have a state of the art urban arena in Downtown DC and that's a great deal for DC, for the teams, and for the fans."

District E is already a good pregame hot spot. Imagine some food and drink specials at the concessions in that area or for the fans who arrive early to watch warmups. Imagine if you're at a Wizards game and still see a slam dunk from Kyle Kuzma.
