    Does anyone have one of the giveaway card sets from the 29th they'd be willing to sell?

    In Finland you can find any other team products but no BJ's. So i have to ask for locals which is the best place to order fanstuff? I have ordered at NHL fanshop and it takes like half a season for their to arrive here.

    I don't normally park there but I don't recall that ever being free parking there. I know someone who works in the building across from the new Crew Stadium and they always charged for parking in that lot. He has a parking pass for that lot he uses.

    Hey Everyone

    A buddy and I are visiting from the UK on an ice hockey pilgrimage in February and will be in Columbus 7th-9th to catch a couple of games.

    We both love sports, beers and all food!

    Suggestions please, what should we make sure we do/see when here apart from the games?? If anyone wants to join us for a beer out there even better!

    Cheers

    I usually endorse the standard recommendation of stopping by Schmidt's Sausage Haus, but beyond that I'm not good at travel destination recommendations. Still, hope your stay is enjoyable. :thumbu:

    I would recommend stopping by the R Bar in the Arena District before the game; it's a hockey-themed bar that is very active on game days. I know a lot of out of towners go to Thurman's Cafe as made famous for their Thurmanator Burger but be there as close to opening time as possible as the wait times can be rather long since it's not a big place.

    From whereabouts in UK? And any special reason to come to Cbus?

    I’ll try and make three posts, one each for beer, food (although there are plenty of options at the link just shared) and other (if you’re here a couple days you might have some time to check a couple other cool things out).

    Beer

    Columbus is the NA HQ for BrewDog, so if you’re looking for something familiar, they have a pub near downtown. There are other quality local brews but my faves are Zaftig and Land Grant. Google them - either is easily and quickly accessible via Uber. (Land Grant is across the street from BrewDog.)

    Cheers guys, appreciate the info.

    Coming from Kent. We have both been ice hockey fans for years and when at uni together played NHL so decided to pick teams for a rivalry, he got Avs, I got Red Wings and we sort of follow them because of that. Worked out that over 9 days we could watch 6 games (3 Avs, 3 Wings) in NY, PHI, BUF and COL so just finishing in Columbus because it worked well!

    I'm flying to Columbus in March to go to a couple games and staying in a hotel near the arena. I haven't lived or spent much time in Columbus for many years. Where should I go for food/drink/entertainment?

    Ideas please! My GF is in CA through the weekend and wants to see the games. We just terminated Spectrum and she doesn’t have access to our Hulu account as I think there’s a two device limit (one is on our TV, the other on my phone)......Any suggestions on how she can catch these games?

    If you're staying near the arena, your best bet is to walk to the Short North for food/drink/entertainment options. It's just a few blocks. Lots of cool places to check out (my favorites are Arch City Tavern, Hubbard Grill, The Pearl and Del Mar). As for pregame, you should go to R Bar as it's the best hockey bar in Cbus and steps from the arena. Other good pregame places are Boston's, Nada, Whistle & Keg, Gordon Biersch, Elevator Brewing, Barley's and Flatiron. German Village is cool to walk around in, and there are some good restaurants like G. Michael's, The Sycamore and Lindey's, and touristy places like Schmidt's, Katzinger's and The Book Loft.

    Thank you! Exactly what I was hoping for :)

    I am definitely planning on checking out the R bar.

    Does anyone know what row is the top row in the upper bowl at nationwide? I used to sit up there with my partial plan but can't remember. Coming down for my 30th birthday on the 20th and am looking for tickets. I loved being at the top and having nobody behind me, and my wife prefers being up high bc she can follow the game better. Thanks in advance!

    It depends on what section you're looking at. It ranges from Row M on one side to Row Q or R in other sections. Check this link out and zoom in. There are many seats at this time that can meet your preference.

    Not a hockey related question, but does anyone frequent any of the local casinos? I just have a couple questions. Thanks

    I'll be attending the game on the 24th. Has anyone on here been to Sweet Carrot before? Was trying to decide between that and The Avenue Steak Tavern.
