IOWA CITY, Iowa — While the competition heats up inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena, concession prices are coming down during six University of Iowa playing dates in February.
ARAMARK, the company in charge of all concession sales within Carver-Hawkeye Arena, is offering three Half Price Days and three Dollar Dog Days beginning with the men’s basketball game against Illinois on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
“Our primary goal is to provide value to guests at Carver-Hawkeye Arena,” said Gary Ward, general manager for ARAMARK at the University of Iowa. “Given the variety on our menu and the value the promotion provides, we encourage fans to try something new.”
