edit: oops thought this was the lounge thread
Hey gang. Pens fan coming in peace. Im from Thunder Bay and looking to make the long trek to Ottawa Nov 16th to watch the game with my inlaws,wife and brother inlaw(all Sens fans). Ive never been to your arena before. We are still looking at tickets. Can anyone tell me any kind of details about the Molson Canadian Fan Deck section 215? Money isnt a huge issue for tickets. Willing to spend roughly 250$ per seat. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone.
If that's your budget, I'd look for seats in the 100s center higher up. Prob my fav view in the arena.
Thanks for the reply. I ended up getting 5 seats together 5 rows up from the glass beside the penalty box. Ive been to Toronto, Winnipeg and Minneapolis for games. I gotta say Ottawas ticket prices are a steal compared to those. Now we just got to figure out where to stay and where to go for drinks/diners.
I'm going to the game tomorrow. First time ever in the CTC. I was looking to know what is the best way to get to the CTC. I looked on google map and it's approx. a 90 minute commute to get there from the Viarail station. Is there a fastest way?
Ok people! I got my tickets and can’t wait for Saturday night! I’m staying downtown at the Alt hotel and would like to know which bus I should catch to the arena and what is the best time to start the trek out. Win or lose, you guys have no idea how stoked I am to go to a live Senators game! Any local advice is greatly appreciated!
Would any Sens STH that was at the game against the Devils last night be willing to send me their Senators paper ticket? I'd be happy to paypal the postage for mailing to USA. I collect tix from important Devils games (1982, SCFs, rookie goal games etc...), and would like a Hischier first NHL goal ticket. Please PM me is so..
The FanDeck is really cool, and a good value. You have assigned seats there with servers and good atmosphere. But you already have great seats!
For convenience can't beat the Brookstreet hotel nearby. Or else you can try something in the Byward Market area, more touristy.
I really like Cabotto's, again nearby. Very good Italian food in a classic old mansion. Brookstreet's restaurants are also top notch.
Enjoy the game!
Go to OC Transpo's website, if you google it, or if you are a group perhaps a Uber may be an easier option. Traffic for a Saturday night game usually isn't bad, unless it is the Leafs or the Habs, then it may be a small disaster. If you go early, you can grab a bite at the arena, 5 ish. If not, I would leave 1hr before.
Any good bars in the downtown area? Hotels around it?
For Leaf fans, if you enter the city limits on the 417 from the west, stay on the 417 through the city and keep going eastbound out of the city. It's pretty far, but when you get to Rigaud, you're getting close. Keep your eyes open.
Let me know if you guys got 2 tix for tonight!
Looking to come to ottfor the game
By the time you get there, check stubhub on your mobile phone. Might be able to get in for $80 USD on a Monday night.
Thinking about making the trip Saturday for the game. Never been to the area. Are there any casinos local or on either side of the border? Would probably be coming in from US-81. Thanks!
Concession prices have been increased...11.75 for a cider???

Coming in to town to see the Jet /Sens game on Easter Monday.
Hard to find best hotel to stay at.... close to the arena ..... I am not driving to and from game ( just to hotel and parking car for the night).... Hard to decipher best option to get to game...
Tough season for Sens fans after being so close last year..... Jyst need a single ticket for the game....... what' s my best option for a good quality seat?
Brookstreet Hotel is where the players stay frequently. However, some teams have stayed downtown. Fairfield Inn by the CTC is the closest.
StubHub still has some decent seats left for that game. They are not strict like Winnipeg when it comes to resale. The game is nearly sold-out on Ticketmaster, but there seems to be some good single seats left.
As of yesterday there was still quite a few in ticketmaster. I was looking for a potential upgrade but I think I will keep my seats on the fan deck.
For a trip in your city. What's the best pub to watch soccer (James Street Pub for Liverpool?) and the best buffet you recommand to me.
With Best Regards
Stars on Ice at CTC this weekend! We should all go so we can say we saw some actual skating talent on the CTC ice this year!
Came across a pretty good Ottawa visitor guide for a quick visit.
How to Have the Ultimate Ottawa Weekend: An Ottawa Itinerary
This feels like a weird time to come to your board, but in the spirit of love for hockey I'm planning a Spring Break hockey tour with my son as he graduates from high school. We're going to follow our team (Blues) and hitting a couple road games including a visit to Ottawa.
This will be the first time in Canada for both of us. He's very excited about the idea of visiting Canada. We'll have 2-3 days around the game. I plan to look over the visitor guide linked above.
Is there any advice for game day activities or Sens traditions I should know about? Anything you consider 'must visit' stops? Famous local foods?
Thanks in advance for any friendly responses. And my condolences on having such a stressful offseason. Hopefully Tkachuk will be a breath of fresh air.
Bizarre question: My grandmonther loved going to the Zellers Restaurant. Its now dead for years on the Quebec side. I was in Ottawa tonight and saw a Zellers store (Barrheaven) but it was closed so I couldn’t see if there was a restaurant inside and I cant find anything online. So can you please tell me if there is a Zellers that still have an restaurant in operation in the Ottawa area, my grandma would be super happy haha. Thanks in advance
Beavertails, a dessert, and skating on the canal, if it is open , is a must. Anywhere near the canal should be popular to check out, as would be Parliament buildings.
As a capital city, we have a lot of museums to check out.
I would stay at the Chateau Laurier, even though it is a hike to the arena, but you will soak up a lot of the atmosphere of the city.
