- “Adam Foote at ESPN Zone for lunch Wednesday.“
- “Broncos CB Dre Bly lunching at ESPN Zone.“
- “San Francisco Giants outfielder Aaron Rowand and starting pitcher Matt Cain both ate lunch at the bar at ESPN Zone Denver this afternoon.“
And although this one isn’t technically an ESPN Zone sighting, it remains my favorite:
