Civic Arena Open Drink Coaster - Pittsburgh, PA - 022
The Civic Arena primarily served as the home to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the city's NHL franchise, from 1967 to 2010.
It was the first retractable roof major-sports venue in the world, covering 170,000 sq. feet and constructed with nearly 3,000 tons of Pittsburgh steel, and supported solely by a massive 260-foot-long cantilevered arm on the exterior.
Even though it was designed and engineered as a retractable-roof dome, the hydraulic jacks never functioned consistently, thus keeping the roof permanently closed after 1994.
The first roof opening was during a July 4, 1962 Carol Burnett show to which she exclaimed "Ladies and Gentleman . . . I present the sky!".
Each coaster is handcrafted from natural 4” by 4” Turkish marble, triple-sealed for durability and is backed with cork to protect your furniture. Each stone is artfully distressed to showcase its uniqueness, so no two coasters are the same!
We can also put your photos on pretty much anything so customize the perfect gift today!
To clean: wipe with a damp cloth, these coasters are not dishwasher safe.
