Tickets Buyer’s Guide
Ballet and opera
Tickets for the ballet and opera at The Royal Opera House (ROH) are notoriously expensive. A spokesman for the company insisted that this season more than half of all tickets are £5or under, and more than 200,000 tickets are less than £2Half of all ballet tickets are £40 or below, he said.
The ROH has 1price bands, with pricer seats typically costing around £200 for the opera and £100 for the ballet. But if you’re prepared to stand for the duration of the performance, or sit “in the gods”, you could pay as little as £for the opera and £for the ballet.
Most families will have to dig deep in order to afford a trip to the ROH, but there are a few concessions that visitors can make the most of.
If you want to be part of an exciting sporting event and experience team excitement at the highest levels, then head to a New York Knicks basketball game at Madison Square Garden. In this New York Knicks Guide, I will show you:
How to buy New York Knicks tickets safely and at a good price
Successes of the New York Knicks
The arch rival of the New York Knicks are the Boston Celtics. Given the proximity of these two cities, that is no surprise. When these two teams meet, the crowd goes crazy. Players on both teams give their all and the games are generally not decided until the last closing seconds. Unfortunately, I have to admit that the Boston Celtics came out ahead more often. Nonetheless: GO KNICKS!
Fans & Atmosphere New York Knicks Games
You can also go to the New York Liberty games. The team is one of the founding members of the female professional basketball league. The ladies know how to play and their games are no less exciting than those by the New York Knicks.
Ticket to Ride
This is the game that started it all. It has US map and all the cool elements that make Ticket to Ride fun. It’s also the version you’ll most likely encounter outside gamestores. I think it’s the best big box version to start with especially if you or your group are new to boardgames. It’s a versatile big box that works with 2-and comes with simplest ruleset. If you live in Germany, you could be interested in Zug um Zug: Deutschland instead.
You can also play Ticket to Ride digitally. It’s implemented very well. You can play on iPad, Android devices and Steam. Europe, Switzerland, India and Legendary Asia are available too, hopefully more to come. Highly recommended, especially if you have hard time finding real life partners, but be warned that after heavy online play you might start beating more casual players quite badly!
Promos & misc.
There are couple of smaller additions to your Ticket to Ride collection.
Ticket to Ride: Halloween Freighter adds Halloween-themed trains for one player to use. It’s greatest use is that you can play expansion maps with four, even if your big box happens to be Nordic Countries. Technically you could try to play 5p maps with too, but it doesn’t really work. Ticket to Ride: Character Score Markers includes shaped scoring markers in all player colours (including Märklin, Nordic Countries, and even Halloween trains which weirdly don’t come with one). Ticket to Ride: Alvin & Dexter adds some fantasy-flavored chaos to TTR. It’s more strategic than it seems, really, but not something you want to add every game. If you own most of the other stuff, it’s something to consider. Ticket to Ride: The Dice Expansion is quite widely hated addition, that replaces set collection with dice. Again, this is something to add to your collection, once you’ve bought everything else and want to add a twist. Ticket to Ride: Mystery Train Expansion is out of print promo that added special powers to ticket deck, it also came with normal tickets, that are luckily included in USA 19(and Anniversary Edition). Ticket to Ride: Orient Express adds new tickets to Europe (long, basic). Ticket to Ride: The Card Game is completely separate game in TTR family. It doesn’t feel much like TTR, it’s more like TTR-themed Mamma Mia!. Liking TTR is no guarantee that you’ll like it aswell, but if you like both memory games and TTR, it could be a game for you.
General Admission tickets
General Admission Tickets have two main pros: they are the most affordable, and you can easily roam about the circuit. You don’t have access to any grandstand, only the circuit itself, so you can walk along it, and enjoy the race from every angle. If you are an avid fan, you would like this experience because you can get into any of the iconic corners.
We suggest that you should watch the beginning of the race from Becketts or Maggots; also head down to Luffield, if you want to see the longest car views.
Grandstand tickets are more expensive than the first category, but they provide you with a reserved seat. Plus, you are protected from the rains and winds. Grandstand tickets are further classified into bands; each band is priced depending on how good the view is. The lowest band tickets are more expensive than higher bands.
Since 199the Rockies have called
Coors Field home. Historically it has been a ballpark that boasts great attendance, and a fan friendly environment. There are a select few seats which have a view of the Rocky Mountains which is a unique feature of this ballpark. It is now time to learn some ways to be smarter on your next trip to Coors Field.
Rockies tickets are cheap. Though they ramp up in price quickly if you buy them from the Rockies website, where the extra fees are obscene. Go straight for Seat Geek. If you are dead broke, go for Rockpile bleacher seats.
The LoDo district is bursting at the seams with bars, restaurants, and food carts. There’s really no reason to show up to the park hungry at all. Still, the drink options are diverse and delicious.
Coors Field is set in Denver’s Lower Downtown or “LoDo” neighborhood. Since the stadium was built in the 1990’s, the neighborhood has flourished and turned into one of the trendiest areas in the entire city. There are a ton of restaurants and bars surrounding the stadium and it’s worth it to spend a few hours checking out the scene before gametime.

Driving to a Rockies Game
The setting of Coors Field is lower downtown Denver, which means there is a fair mixture of parking options. Of course you have the team garage, which is a little expensive, but there are some places to park for free near Coors Field, or at least really cheap.
Usually I like to touch on the prospects of free or cheap metered street parking near the stadium. Unfortunately this is largely not possible for Coors Field due to the operating hours of the meters in the area.
The Rockies have three official parking lots surrounding the stadium containing 4,300 total spaces. Prices here are the same for every game, pricier for the closest lot and a little bit cheaper for the two that are a bit further. Still, you are really paying for it.
There Are Few Parking Options with the Rockies Themselves
There are also a bunch of off street parking lots and garages within easy walking distance of the stadium. Two of them that I’m familiar with charge just around a tenner depending on the game. The first one is located at 16th St and Wewatta St, less than a minute walk to the stadium. The second is at 179Wazee St, also a quick 5-minute walk to the stadium.
What the Sundance Film Festival is Not
The first thing to know, if you are member of the general public, is that unlike your local film festival, however hip or indie, the Sundance Film Festival is actually not built entirely for you, the consumer.
It’s an elaborate viewing edifice designed to showcase carefully culled and curated films, documentaries, features and shorts to industry viewers.
This year, 11full-length features are being shown, representing about three percent of the over four thousand films submitted. (Harvard’s acceptance rate is higher.) The vast majority, 10of the 201Sundance films being screened are world premieres. About half are the work of international filmmakers, and half are by Americans, transforming Sundance into a global event. The ten-day festival is where film distributors of all stripes view, discuss and most importantly make deals for the films you and I will see (or not) on TV, cable, online and in theaters large and small. It’s also a proving ground for international films’ distribution.
Sundance is like a huge slingshot, a launching pad for newly minted, independently created films to find their way to audiences.
Public’s Demand for Film Tickets Outstrips Supply – Or Does It?
Sundance feels vast. It gobbles up much of Park City. Events are held in the public library, the high school auditorium and local commercial movie theaters. Restaurants, bars and even stores on historic Main Street are transformed into venues for invitation-only parties, media events and music cafes. The festival sprawls into Salt Lake City, a 45-minute drive away (where movies are shown at Salt Lake Community College’s 1,100 seat Grand Theatre, among other venues) and Ogden, even further.
If Sundance is a buyers’ market in terms of film distribution, it feels like a sellers’ market in terms of getting tickets for screenings. Of a guestimated 100,000 festival tickets, a sizable number go to industry people, VIPs, sponsors and participating filmmakers. Both volunteers and locals (who understandably get miffed when unable to get tickets to a festival that brings 50,000 visitors to their village) have special purchasing options, too.
But, the public is welcome. Only “twenty percent of our attendees are press or industry folks; the other people are film fans or aspiring filmmakers,” says Sundance ticket guru Linda Pfafflin. And, a publicist for global premiers told me that especially at premieres, “filmmakers love having “real people” in the audiences to see what reactions their work elicits,” up close and personal.
I. Early Birds
Register in September. Utah is ski country, and the process (and process it is) of buying festival packages or passes resembles slow motion slaloming through gates; you go through one, and then another, in a 5-step, 5-month process before you’re done: • In September prior to the January festival, you register online. • In October, around Columbus Day, you receive an email with your personal “timeslot” when you can log into the Sundance website to select your ticket package. • Later in October, you log in and make a commitment to how much money you will spend (ranging from a few hundred bucks to over a thousand) for your tickets. • In December, after the Festival has released the names of the films being shown, you’ll get another email notification of another timeslot in January. • In early January, you log in during your timeslot and make your film selection online. Whew.
Buyers aren’t guaranteed availability of anything, from 10-movie packages to all-access passes, to scoring tickets to your favorite indie director’s latest flick. And, the pecking order for “timeslots” is randomized by a computer.
Make friends with a local. Local residents have their own ticketing options, so if you are on good terms with your uncle in Park City and he isn’t using all his tickets, maybe he’ll share his with you.
Volunteer. If you have more time than money, think about volunteering. An immense logistical infrastructure at Sundance is aided by a smiling army of some 1,800 volunteers, from college kids to retirees, some of whom are rewarded access to films. Twice as many wanna-be volunteers apply as are accepted. Start early; applications are due mid-August.
If you go with a friend(s), consider buying a combination of cheap and amazing seats: this way, you can split the cost and trade off time in the great seat. E.g., you could trade time in seats in Promenade vs Courtside, or between stadiums (in Ashe vs a reserved seat in Armstrong or Grandstand). I do this every year with my best friends.
The direct phone number to the U.S. Open Box Office is 718-760-6363.
201US Open Event Guide. If someone you really want to see will play on Grandstand or Armstrong, get to the grounds as early as you can so you can be among the first in line when the gates open at 9:30am then speed-walk to those stadiums and grab the best seat you can. (that now have bleachers seating over 1,000 people) for close sightings of the superstars including Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Rafa, Serena Williams. View the practice schedule to see when/where players are practicing (you can also see it on the official US Open Everywhere App).
