Renissance is another top choice I would bet. Very good possibility.

Thanks.
My standard recommendation is the Residence Inn on Gay St. They have great rooms and a fantastic free breakfast. Also, across the street from the Tip_Top so you can get your late night drunk fix of Ohio Nachos with sausage. Mmmmmmmm.

Hampton Inn is the place if you want to bar hop in the Arena District or Short North. Free breakfast there, too.

But, yea, Ohio Nachos with sausage from Tip Top are absolutely evil and awesome.

thinking of taking the better half to the Black Tie Blue Jackets event. We've always talked about it, but never attended. Worth it? Are 'individual tickets' a waste of time, ie, 'championship couple' the only way to do it? If we do it, I don't want to be off in the stands somewhere

I have 2 tickets to the Minny Wild game on Tuesday, Feb. 7 that I am looking to move.

Seat Location:

Sec. 107, Row Q

Face is $80, but of course being this season as it is, not what I paid for them. But I'm taking a loss here to try and move them and offering them up for $25/each, $50 for the pair.

PM me with interest.

Thanks.

I've taken my daughter the past three years. We always enjoy it. Food excellent for such a big crowd, and we enjoyed seeing the boys and their wives and girlfriends walking the runway with young cancer heroes.

Individual tickets are fine, gets you right in the mix with all the high rollers. It aint cheap.... but the money goes to the Foundation.

See ya there?

Avoid the fashion show only tickets. They were offered last year, and didn't include dinner or arena floor seating. Those are the "off in the stands" seats you want to avoid. They were $100 a pop, but aren't listed so I don't think they are offering them again.

Thanks. Should've asked you to begin with. One of Julie's coworkers is married to a manager at Kelly BMW, so they get the royal treatment. I believe Jake was their player last year. I asked Julie to see if she can snag us seats with them this year, but no such luck!

We'll see what happens. I've 40 or so jerseys, but not sure I have a suit nice enough to go!

Unless you are picky about sitting in certain lower bowl sections, it looks like StubHub has a bunch of tickets posted for below face value right now. Even if you factor in their commission fee, its still a good deal depending on the area.

I don't think it matters where you go to school as long as your ID is valid and you can do it every game if you want.

If I recall correctly they vary game by game. I believe they use the rush program to sell unsold seats to games, therefore if you go alone and need a single seat you can actually end up with a pretty banging one. I haven't done this in over 2 years though so things may have changed.

My son does it frequently. He attends a school in Indiana, so it includes more then Ohio schools. And there is no limit per year.

The seats are decent. The seats in the front-half of either bowl aren't available, but you (likely) won't have to sit in the top rows. For the price, the tickets are very good. With that said, there are occasionally better deals on Stub-Hub if you want to try that route.

i am always happy with where i get seated for rush tickets. i have gotten single game tickets on the glass before (which i don't prefer but some people enjoy that i guess).

I like the Crown Plaza (Holiday Inn), and for drinks the Rbar, for food try the 3-legged Mare.

3 legged mare has a limited event menu on game days. If you don't mind sandwiches it's fine. Looking for dinner? Most of their "dinner " items aren't available on game days. In addition some of the items on event menu were not available when we tried to order them. . Been there 3 times on game day and always disappointed in service and availability of food.

They are relatively new, so I'm hoping they are just working out kinks.....
