going to ATL for my first game this year. Questions.

I moved down to Alabama from up north. My birthday is Thursday so I'm gonna take the short trip from Tuscaloosa to see the Sens vs Thrashers.

My question are

1. How much is parking at Phillips arena

2. Are the ushers A-holes about pictures during warm ups down low?

I plan on leaving Tuscaloosa around 2pm CST so I can take my time to get to ATL.

Thanks for the help. BTW I had season tickets to the QC Flames for the last two years and your farm team was in our division so a lot of players I will be familiar with.

Parking can be anywhere from free (if you're willing to walk a bit) to $8 (lot on Marietta Street), $10 (Georgia Dome and under the Arena) to $15+ in the CNN parking deck.

No problem taking pictures down near the ice during warm up, that's when I get all my cool shots

Enjoy the game !

INFORUM public parking for $5 is top tier.

most convenient parking is the cnn center deck which is normally 15. there's others that are cheaper but not as convenient and depending on where it is not as safe or secure either.

it's fine to take pictures

The best parking for me is on the corner of Spring St NW and Walton St NW. Only 3 blocks from Phillips, it's a covered parking garage and only $5.00,

Taking Pics is totally fine during the warm-ups and the game itself.

Leaving at 2pm CST should get you into the city about 5:30 - 6 o'clock depending on traffic. Gaining an hour coming into EST blows.

Not a gump...

Fiance attends UA as her father is the Dean of the School of Social Work.

I grew up in Florida and my mom is a UF alumni. GO GATORS!!

It's sad really, I went to over 140 AHL games, 100 ECHL games, 100+ UHL 50 or so USHL games and never been to a NHL game.

I will probably park right at the arena since I will be by myself. I will be wearing either a QC Flames AHL Jersey or a QC Mallards Jersey.

I watched Coach Anderson while he was at QC.
I also plan on making it to the PITT vs ATL game this year april 10th.

I also wonder if I but say a $10 seat will they check me if I try to sneak down?

The only way you will be able to sneak down...after the warmups, just find a seat in the middle of one of the sections on the side or behind the net.....stay there for the rest of the game. I doubt anyone will bother you.

sweet, I prefer to sit in those spots anyways. I had ST's behind the net for the AHL flames for two years on the glass. Best pictures.

On a diet, lost 22 pounds in a month and a half.

I like Tuscaloosa. Not a bad town really.
