Coming from out of town & 2nd Annual “Breaking Into Sports” Workshop.
I was wondering if anyone has gone to this in the past, it's Nov. 14th at the arena. A couple friends and I are coming down from Pittsburgh (we are Sport, Arts, and Entertainment Mgmt majors), it includes the game that night also against Montreal.
Also, since we are coming from out of town, we are looking for a cheap but close place to stay near the arena (splitting between 3 people, not wanting to pay more than 50 each). It looks like the hotels near LP stadium are good options, and within walking distance.
Lastly, only one of us are over 21 (others are 20), and are wondering if there is anywhere we can go after the game to check out the music scene?
I cannot recommend you stay around the football stadium. There is a reason those room rates may seem low. I don't stay in hotels around town so I don't know the rates, but you might want to check out the hotels on Broadway and/or West End. There are several name brands you would recognize.
You should be able to get into various venues on Broadway and 2nd Avenue without being 21. You will be identified (by a wrist band) as someone that cannot purchase alchol when you enter the business.
Oh wow, thanks... I guess I didn't think it would be shady around the football stadium.
I actually just checked out entertainment.com because I have a discount card, and it looks like I can actually get some decent deals...
We won't have a car, we are going by greyhound and it's just for the weekend. The job convention starts at 2 and goes til 6, then of course the game after that, so we will want to walk around and explore before, after, and on Sunday until we go back.
