No restaurant very basic concessions, no souvenir outlet.
Probably remember other details given some time.
Forum was renovated after the first expansion season.
The top blues were orange. I remember Dad taking us to some exhibition games, Que. Aces vs. the CH and we always seemed to be behind a pillar. It seemed to me to be a strange way to watch a game. It was early 60's what the hell did I know.
The high white/grey seats behind the nets didn't exist, did they , until the renovations ?
