Visiting - Need Help

I am looking for two tickets to the Hawks-Flamers game on 11/11.. Does anyone happen to be selling tickets for that game?

Also, any recommendations on what I have to see/do (I'll be in Chicago for 24 hours, landing at 11am on Friday) and where to eat and where to stay?

Thanks for your help.. I looked for a 'Visitors' thread but didn't find anything, sorry if this is a repost.

Another question to piggyback here...

My brother just moved from Boston to Chicago and will be attending the game this Saturday. He has a SRO ticket. My father is flying in from Boston to meet up, and he has a handicap accessible ticket somewhere in the 300's. I can't find any good info, but based on the pictures I have found of the United Center I think they'll be able to stand/sit next to each other as long as they get in earlier enough to find a spot to stay. Am I correct?

We went to the Blackhawks ticket exchange, found almost identical seats, a little bit cheaper, and no ticketing fee. Just picked them up at will call and we were good to go.

Blackhawks ticket exchange tacks on a much, much larger service charge to the seller - you just don't see it. If it was cheaper on there, you just got lucky.

Interesting. It was a good $50 cheaper overall for the 4 tickets. Guess its better to be lucky than good afterall.

Really? Stubhub charges 15% to the seller, and 10% plus 11.95 to the buyer. I sell my Rangers tickets on the Rangers ticketexchange. I get charged 5%, but the buyer gets hit with the standard ticketdisaster fees.

I am looking for a pair for the 3/9 game against the Rangers if anyone is selling. Thought there was a thread on here where STH's were selling tickets, but cannot find it.

Another question.. I am hoping to hit up Goose Island before (or after, depending on hours) the game. Whats the local opinion of this place.. I see it's owned by AB-InBev.. Any recommendations? What's it like? Any must have beers?

Goose is the right place. Although, the billy goat is a good place to hustle tickets before a game in case you need a pair.

Depends what you're into. If you're looking to be real touristy then just stay on Michigan Ave. Theres millennium park, a billion shops, hancock observatory, art museum, etc... Plenty of places to eat.

If you're lookin' for the bar scene i'd recommend up north somewhere.
