You can get 200 Level seats, the best ones having sat in all of them IMO, for 75 USD on StubHub a couple days before the game, about 453 Norwegian krone. Sit either in goal or center ice seats, the corner seats have worse sightlines.

Thanks for answering. I will try to buy tickets when they go on sale (would suck to travel all the way and not get tickets )
I will keep an eye on the blackhawks page, but if someone knows when the tickets go on sale, I would appreciate feedback.

Happy olympics

If you don't get tickets from the box office, Stubhub is always a good option.

First time I don't have to wake up early to try and grab games. I'm very happy.

Are these tickets usually more expensive? How much?

Sorry for asking stupid questions, but I've never done this before.

Thanks for helping out guys, really appreciate it.

Depends on where you want to sit. There's a decent markup, but it's not as bad as people make it out to be. Especially for games like Columbus.

I think I grabbed Edmonton tickets for $55 a piece last year in the 3rd deck.

All depends on the situation. Sometimes you can snag some really good deals on gameday. People decide they can't make it, and offer them up on the cheap.

They'll sell all the available single game tix in about an hour, 2 at the most. So get on the second they come out and see what you can grab.

Damn, do they really go that quick? I am a Pens fan travelling from Australia (well, Europe at the moment, but I'm from Australia) and I want to go to the Pens - Hawks game in early November as I will be in town. When they go on sale on the 20th, are there tickets for every game available or are some premium games sold out already?

Thanks in advance.

Shedd would probably be the best. Any kid of any age can enjoy fish swimming in circles, not sure a 4 year old would enjoy the other 2.

If you are on the southside, just off 79th and Central is Chuck's BBQ. Probably my favorite restaurant.

If you are a bar fan, I will turn it over to the gentlemen over there. This time of year there's not much to do tbh, especially with the lockout. Depends on what you're looking for, then we can give you a solid recommendation.

I welcome any restaurant/bar recommendations, that said we're trying to keep costs down so only really looking to spend 'more' on food once a day. So far the restaurants I've picked out to visit are: Giordano's, Smoque BBQ, brunch at The Gage.

Definitely going to visit The Merchandise Mart (Wife is an interior designer and have a contact to get us in), The Rookery, Art Institute, John Hancock Building, Shedd Aquarium, The Field Museum, etc.

Staying with good friends in the River Forest area, planning on buying a 3 day CTA pass to ride the El.

Getting really excited, have always wanted to see Chicago's architecture, history and more.

Not sure how often this thread gets looked at but thought I'd give it ago before making a thread of my own.

Been recovering from two surgeries on my back, thought I'd get myself a quality birthday present, so I've been Planning on coming down from Toronto from April 4th to 8th to catch the games vs. St. Louis and Nashville. I'd most likely come by myself, but would love to catch the game with some fellow Hawks fans, so more or less looking for someone or multiple to see either game with. Feel free to PM me

Kind of a longshot, but seeing if there's a fit for a ticket swap. I have season tickets in Columbus. I have Club Level seats for the Chicago game on Jan 26th IN COLUMBUS.

I'm visiting Chicago on March 1st and looking for two seats to see the Blue Jackets play IN CHICAGO. Just throwing out there if someone was interested in roadtripping to Columbus on Jan 26th and might have a couple tickets to the March 1st game they'd be interested in a trade.

Depending on seats available in Chicago, I could throw in extra Club seats to game in Columbus to help offset differences in current market demand. In other words, I know 2 Club seats in Columbus aren't currently worth 2 Club seats in Chicago. But, I could offer four Club seats in Columbus for 2 good seats (not necessarily Club) in Chicago. Or, might be willing to go six Club seats in Columbus for 2 great seats in Chicago?

Otherwise, if someone is coming to Columbus for Jan 26th game and wants tickets or has a pair of tickets to March 1st game in Chicago (and not asking a huge markup), please PM me.

Tickets are always pricey on the secondary markets here. Demand is sky high.

Another longshot, but looking for 4 tickets to the Vancouver-Chicago game on Feb. 19th. We're all students, so we have a limited budget to be honest, but thought it's worth a shot.

PM me if you have anything and we'll see if it fits.

Thanks!
