The United Center is home of the National Baskeball Association’s (NBA’s) Chicago Bulls and the National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) Chicago Blackhawks. I most recently visited the stadium on the night that the Chicago Bulls played the Dallas Mavericks. The game was a great game. I expected both teams to play poorly because both teams are tanking but both played well, with the exception of Christiano Felicio playing almost the entire game instead of Bobby Portis (who came in off the bench at the end of the game and won the game for us).
The game was amazing but I also got to see some of the biggest names in basketball, as well as some up in coming names. Seeing Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban made my entire week. I also saw the J J Berea, Rick Carlisle, Harrison Barnes, and the rookie sensation Dennis Smith, Jr. Zach LaVine was playing for the Bulls and he will be a great player in the NBA. Bobby Portis is also a rising star for the Bulls as well.
Now, for the pizza. The pizza at the United Center adds to the greatness of the stadium. You have two options, Woodgrain Pizza, which cooked fresh to order. They have a standard menu but you can customize the pizza to your liking. I always add spinach to the four cheese pizza. They even have a Philly cheesesteak pizza. They have grated parmesean cheese and even Chicago staples such as the Chicago Dog (hot dog) and Italian Beef sandwiches.
If you do not want thin crust pizza you can also have Connie’s deep dish pizza. Connie’s is popular around Chicago. It is not the Chicago stuffed pizza that the city is famous for, but it is still very good. The only issue is that it is not fresh. It is good and can be found in your grocer’s freezer. Many people love Connie’s but I love Woodgrain Pizza so I always choose Woodgrain.
If pizza is not your thing they have many other options. My husband went for the cheeseburger and fries at Legacy Burger. While I would never defect and get something other than pizza, if you must, there are other great options at the stadium.
We even got a full moon out of the deal.
