PORT OF CALL: In Miami, Hannah Sampson noted Carnival Cruise Line has "taken some of its bars from ship to shore," as three bars "based on venues aboard the cruise line's ships are now open at AmericanAirlines Arena." RedFrog Bar is "brand new this season" at the arena, while RedFrog Rum Bar and Bluelaguna Tequila Bar both "opened late last season." Heat Owner Micky Arison also serves as Carnival Corp. Chair (MIAMI HERALD, 11/2).
DINING WITH THE DEVILS: In New Jersey, Kara Yorio wrote Prudential Center concessionaire Aramark is "trying to satisfy those people who crave the traditional, but also long for a little more sophisticated or healthy options." Prudential Center exec chef Niko Marinos said that while Aramark "makes the food decisions, the Devils' new ownership had been involved." The arena is "able to switch things up between events and offer specific items depending on the clientele" (Bergen RECORD, 11/3).
