1. Playoff Tickets: Assuming we make the playoffs, when will playoff tickets go on sale and how much will they cost approximately a) through the teamsite b) through the secondary market (stubhub, etc.) and what would the chances of getting my hands on a pair be.
2. Ranger Bars: For any games that the Rangers are playing away or Im not attending, where you recommend going in the city to watch the games where there will be a great hockey atmosphere?
Finally, this is my first time in New York, is there anything that you would recommend for a couple in their mid-twenties to do in New York that we might not think of beyond the very obvious touristy activities? We are definately going to a Yankees game, but other than that are open to suggestions.
Thanks a lot for the tips. Can't wait to check out NYC!
1) Be prepared to pay out the nose for playoff tickets. I'm not a season ticket holder, but from what little I have read, prices for playoff tickets go up pretty significantly (somewhere in the neighborhood of 30% I read somewhere, could be, and most likely am, wrong though). I could be way off base, but I wouldn't be surprised to see 300 level seats go for at least $200 on the secondary market.
2) I can say that, without having been to a ton of NYR bars in Manhattan, I really love
. It's really close to MSG, and they cater to NYR fans both before and after the game. Pretty good food, decent prices for Manhattan, and an absolutely AWESOME selection of beer (that's the kicker for me, personally)!
3) I always like going on brewery tours when I visit a city. I haven't gone to the Brooklyn Brewery yet, so I can't attest to whether or not it's good, but I always have fun learning about the brewing process and tasting some awesome beer. It might be worth looking into. The Bohemian Hall in Astoria is also pretty fun (food and drink are good, and cheap). You're probably noticing a pattern by now, but I am a huge beer enthusiast.
