Got tickets to a game? Where are you sitting?

Got my 3 game pack today and will be going to all 3 afternoon games this season. Being on Vancouver Island it just isn't financially possible for me to purchase anymore until somebody wakes up and brings back that commuter ferry for those of us who need to get back the same night. Anyway,

I'll be in section 439 - row D for all 3 afternoon games against Sask, Mon and TO.

Where is everyone else sitting?

Where and when are the pre-game watering holes you'll all be at?

Cheers!

Went to the Kingston Tap House (755 Richards Street) before the West Final and it was a sea of orange and black. Huge space, 2 floors. Recommended.

Post game I sometimes check out the pub at Rosie's On Robson (838 Hamilton Street @ Robson). Another good venue full of Lions fans. There's also Shark Club on West Georgia.


DH :cool:

I am also from the Island and have purchased a single seat 3 pak. I'm going to the first 3 home games. Sitting in the second row, upper deck. I will probably supper at the Kingston Tap House and likely wearing the replica (sort of) old style faux leather helmet.

Any recommendations for parking? Is the Kingston Tap House within walking distance of B.C Place?

As far as parking goes, I'd recommend parking at Swartz Bay, walking on, and taking transit downtown. Likely be tons cheaper :)

The Kingston is also a very good economy accomodations option for the cost conscious when visiting Vancouver. One can get a single room for $65 under a bed and breakfast type set up. No frills room with bathrooms and showers down the hall. The also have some private rooms available with bathroom and shower.
