    Thank you for your help! I was thinking of maybe using seatgeek since it's slightly cheaper. Does anyone have experience with seetgeek's ticket?

    I've never used it, but I imagine the experience would be very similar, where you would go into your "purchased events" or whatever, and they would provide you with some sort of bar code.

    Plane tickets and tickets for the Lightning and Panthers game 16th and 20th of January are now booked! Bought those 'Theme tickets packs'.
    What i have left to book is the Stars game on the Sat. and a decent hotel near the X.

    What hotel would you recommend?

    Well, if you're looking for proximity to the arena, the Holiday Inn on Kellogg and 7th is literally right across the street from the X. Walking distance from plenty of bars and restaurants as well.

    It's nothing overly fancy, it's a Holiday Inn. But if you're just looking for a decent place to crash, near the arena, that's a good spot.

    We stayed at the Intercontinental walking distance from the X when we were there. I liked it, nice views over the river.

    I use SG all the time and have never had any problems. I do download the tickets as a PDF just in case my phone data decides to not want to cooperate.

    Is Hyatt Place in downtown St. Paul a good place to stay?

    Let me preface by saying I didn't read through this thread...

    I'll be going to Minneapolis in October for the Vikings game. Been there before but mostly ate at either the mall, at the game or random places near the hotel/US Bank. The only place I remember going was City Works to watch the games on Sunday (went to the MNF game against the Saints in 2017.)

    Any other good places to eat/bars to go on a Saturday night? I'll be flying in Saturday morning for the game on Sunday.

    Hey guys
    Flying in to MSP the 12th for the home opener

    Staying at the intercontinental in St. Paul, won’t have a car so planning on taking the train to the mall to kill time before check in and the bus over to the hotel
    any place near the Xcel to grab a beer in a Crosby jersey?

    The 7th Street Truck Park is a cool place to grab a beer. It's also attached to New Bohemia, which is a cool place too. Probably upwards of 40 beers on tap between the two bars. Like 2 blocks away from the X too, can't beat the location.

    You're a Norwegian, right? Then you should visit Norway House, they have a cafe there serving kjøttkaker :DD

    You may even find Zuccarello there, I hear he loves the place.
    When you are in the area it's easy to find, it's a pretty big brick building with blue paint.
