Im a diehard Oilers and Cardinals fan but unfortionately due to timing won't be able to catch my first live NFL game being a week too late, but my buddy and I are definitely interested in seeing you guys kick the leafs ass on thursday night. Is our best idea too go through a scalper for cheap seats or just buy them at the ticket office?
This will be probably my 20th trip to Phoenix (grandparents live there and parents always had a vacation condo growing up) but this will be my first time of legal age. What are some good places to check out for decent lounges/restaraunts/night clubs etc.?
We'll be golfing everyday as well but im sure my grandpa will handle most of the tee times in that regard. Any other ideas or places to check out would be awesome, thanks!
Glad to hear you're coming to route against the Leafs! As far as tickets go, I would wait till about a week before hand and then call around. It's very unlikely the game will sell out and at that poi....wait, you're a diehard Cardinals fan?!?! Sorry, got distracted, anyway at that point you'll be able to determine where to get the best deal, 3rd party like stubhub or at the box office.
As for going out, Old Town Scottsdale is by far your best option. Unfortunately that's no where near Surprise but it's still by far your best bet. Downtown Tempe is a decent spot too considering your age but that's even further away. There are places that you'd probably enjoy that are located close to you but they are unlikely to be happening on days other than Friday and Saturday. Since you're not here on those days, you're likely going to need to travel to Old Town or Tempe to get much of a nightlife experience. Oh and I'm sure you've heard that apparently Brett Sutter
a fan of Tuesday nights at American Junkie (Old Town Scottsdale).
