Bank of America Stadium, uptown Charlotte
Cool factor: Tour Panthers Stadium, meet Sir Purr, dress and play in Sir Purr’s Play Den — and outdoor area where kids can suit up like a player and practice kicking and passing skills.
Details: Geared to children age 5-12, $445 gets you two hours for up to 20 children and up to 40 adults. For an extra $50 the TopCats will make an appearance.
Who’s cooking? You are. You must supply your own food, beverages and paper products.
Notes: For a more affordable option, if attending a Panthers game, you can request Sir Purr to come to your seat during the game to wish your little one a special happy birthday.
BB&T Ballpark, uptown Charlotte
Cool factor: All the perks of the uptown stadium plus a personal shout out on the video board, a free Knights T-shirt and special lanyard for the birthday child.
Details: Parties are scheduled during Knights games. $300 gets field box seats for up to 12 guests of any age. For an additional $40, the birthday boy or girl can get a personal visit from Homer the Dragon and other memorabilia signed by Homer.
Who’s cooking? They are! Personal pizzas from Dominoes and soft-serve yogurt from Fuzzy Peach for each guest.
Notes: You can bring your own birthday cake.
