And while I maintain a parking lot and decorating the back of an SUV doesn't sound like much fun for anyone, I did come across something pretty cool in the family fun category -- ice cold to be specific -- and (bonus) it's allergy-friendly, too.
The Phoenix Coyotes, the pro ice hockey team based at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, along with the Phoenix Allergy Network, has announced it's offering an allergy-friendly suite for "families who want to enjoy NHL hockey and world-class events in a setting that is shared by people with like symptoms."
According to the Coyotes' website, the private suite is cleaned prior to the event, there's a ban on peanuts, and the facility even offers an allergy-friendly menu designed by Aramark, Jobing.com Arena, and the Phoenix Allergy Network that's free of the top eight allergens, including peanut, tree nut, soy, wheat, dairy, egg, shellfish, and fish (You can bring food from the concessions into the suite with the exception of peanuts and tree nuts.).
