The Albany Empire's arena football season hasn't started quite yet, but you can already enjoy the Albany Empire... at lunch.

'The Empire Deli', dedicated to the Albany Empire is a new addition to the Albany International Airport.  News 10 abc reported that the deli planned for an opening this weekend, complete with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the presence of Albany Empire players and coaches.

The official arena football season for the Albany Empire kicks off April 27th at the Times Union Center.  The games are definitely fun and exciting.  But- if you can't make it to one, at least you can enjoy the team atmosphere at the deli.  Sure it's at the airport, but it IS before security, so you can stop by to eat and hit the road without having to deal with a TSA screening.
