Just in time for the return of basketball season,  the Miami Heat is shaking things up. But it has nothing to do with the players or the change of venue of its charity golf tourney.

This time, the Heat has partnered with its host venue, the AmericanAirlines Arena, and the uber successful Pubbelly Group to serve Pubbelly Sushi in the AAA’s 601, the event space formerly known as Bongo’s. 601 is open 90 minutes before a game or a concert and sometimes it’s open afterward, as well.

While Pubbelly Sushi will occasionally be available in all the arena’s premium areas such as the Dewar’s Club various suites, loges and lounges, it will always be available in 601.

But wait, there’s more! Pubbelly Burger and Baja Bao Baoqueria, will be offered on the concourse of the Arena during games and concerts, so even if the team is losing your stomach is winning.
