Planning a trip.

Im planning on comming up to see the Montreal game on January the 17th and I had a couple of questions, what is the cheapest way to buy tickets from a distance (phone or website) and I noticed that they limit gold games to 4 tickets per purchase and I will need 5-7 (waiting to hear back from 2 ppl) is there a good way to buy tickets so they are all together?

One more quick question: We have noticed that there are a few bars inside SBP (including Marshy's). My question is....would you recommend going there to one of the bars at the SBP before the game? Is it a good atmosphere? Or would you suggest staying downtown in the market area near the Novotel for a bite to eat and a few pints before the game?

Thanks again.
If you can get an early bus, do it. Personally, I would only want to take the 1 hour bus trip once.

Hi guys, Montreal fan here, I'm planning to be at the game on the 17th of January, is there some tickets left?
Is there an hotel that is way better than the others but not like 300$ a night?
Do you have some tips for me? (Instead of just not going)

Thank you guys!

Tickets for January games don't go on sale until some time in November (I'm not sure of the exact date), so you haven't missed out yet.

I would give a shout to Pro Hockey Life and see if they do. I don't know if they have vintage, but they have every NHL team jersey in stock. It's the biggest hockey store in the world and close to SBP.

thats ok, thanks. I did a pre-sale/promo code and ended up getting row C, I wanted to be up a bit higher but everytime I tried it kept giving me the same 2 tickets. oh well, doesnt really matter it will be fun to go either way. I just wish that capital tickets had an option to pick at least what section you wanted to sit in when doing online ordering.

They are clueless there when it comes to customization...I asked if they still customized the old style of Sens jersey and they looked at me as if I was talking in another language.

Clubhouse Sports (literally a 1 minute walk from Hockey Life) has the customization kits for ANY team and ANY jersey going back like 30 years or something.

The bus station is about 1.5km from Parliament, an easy 20 minute walk down Kent. You could also take a taxi but it's going to be a nice day.

There are a lot of employees around on weekdays but as far as tourists go it won't be too bad.

Where will you be staying?

The bus terminal isn't too far from downtown. It's about a 30-minute walk from the terminal to Parliament Hill. You can also grab a cab for relatively cheap.

At this time of year, there are a lot more tourists in town and you'll see a lot of tour buses. However, this isn't peak tourism season yet - the last week of June is when the crowds start to swell.

Coming Down To Ottawa(From Montreal)

Hey guys, I live in Montreal and I am visiting Ottawa next Friday with my girlfriend for our four year anniversary and I was just wondering what we can do.

We're coming down by train, so movement around the city will be limited as we will probably be on foot. We will mostly be staying around the Parliament area to visit it of course as well as a couple of museums in the area.

Can anyone suggest a few places we can visit that would be "cute". My girlfriend is kind of artsy fartsy and a cornball, so if you can suggest anything that would make her go "awww" and statisfy her art loving side you'd really help me score some points.

Anyway, mods please keep this open at least for a few responses.

Your girl would probably enjoy the national art gallery. Get a picture of you guys under the giant spider.

Just as long as you don't plan on having a night life experience. I went to Ottawa to see a few Sens game last season and decided to stay the night for one of them. The bars close at 1am. WTF man? I LEAVE my house at 1 am to go drinking.

It wasn't even a bar, it was a resto-bar (don cherrys) AND THAT was recommended to me by some guy working at the help desk at the university of ottawa. The waitress there told me to go to Gatineau if I wanted to have a good night.

What a disaster.

Where are you staying and what exactly do you mean by artsy fartsy and cornball?

The National Gallery is a good start. Walking and exploring the 'artsy fartsiness' of the Byward Market is a relatively safe bet as there are lots of 'artsy' 'fartsy', 'cornball' friendly type of stores!

I'm just playing on your own words but the above mentioned activities are a 'safe bet'
