Yo!

For those of you traveling to Texas for the game make sure you tell your credit card company that you are going. Texas is a state that is so full of fraud that my bank won't allow my card to be used down there unless I notify them of the dates I'll be there.

I wanna make sure you guys have the funds to buy Leif and I a beer with your cards.

So my plan to tell the bartenders "the big fella with the crazy beard is buying" is a sinking ship?

What you do is steal someone's hotel key every so often, then hand it to a fattie waitress and tell them to come up at like 2 AM. It's a must really.

UPDATE ON TICKETS.

The guy who was going to facilitate a group purchase for us is not comfortable with the number of folks/tickets involved and is unlikely to go through with the arrangement we discussed earlier.

It isn't surprising, really. It's rather understandable. We have gathered a size able group here and without one individual willing to front payment for 20-40 tickets, it would be a real pain in the ass.

So for us it's back to the drawing board....I've all but given up on the Texans ticket office providing us any assistance. I will call the Seahawks office and see if they can suggest anything.

I'm assuming in a month or so, if nothing else, we can all just hop on stubhub and grab tickets individually in specifically targeted areas/sections. ((For example: stubHub currently has 59 tickets in endzone section 618 ranging in prices starting at $85 with a block of 14 in one row))

Keep your eyes open and any suggestions-bring them here. Also, if anybody just wises up and goes off the res and grabs tickets let us know where.

Possible very good news forthcoming. I will probably start a new thread for game tickets and request that the mods sticky it as this is going to take some work on my behalf to organize the interest and facilitate the payment for all of this.

Essentially:

I spoke with a Texans ticket rep who said for a group our size (20-40) he can get us a block of tickets together in the 600 level between the 40yardlines.

The price would be $211 per ticket (may include service fees-I have to clarify)

And includes game ticket and our own reserved table in a hospitality room called the Churrascos Club which has:

Our single game hospitality includes your ticket to the game and access to the Churrascos Club:
· Beer, wine, liquor, mimosas, and Coca-Cola products (open bar)
· A pre-game unlimited buffet of delectable choices catered by Churrascos Restaurant
· Meet and greet of the Houston Texans Cheerleaders and NFL Alumni
· Complimentary Game day programs



How many of you would be interested in this??

I need to gauge interest in this. It's either going to be this or every man for himself, I think.

FYI: Churrascos is an awesome Mexican restaurant with multiple locations in the area. Great TexMex food.

the tickets look a little steep there, since they are in the rafters, but if you are talking all you can eat tex mex and free beer for two hrs. I can make up for it. Id be down for that!

So, been looking around at potential Saturday night gathering spots...

Twin Peaks?

http://www.twinpeaksrestaurant.com/about/

We can setup a back room for some privacy and personal service. Once I get the room lined-out, we get Rock to use his powers for good and see if we can get a player or two to hang with us until curfew.

Thoughts?

Yeah that's a pretty good deal. I can drink $100 worth of stadium beer without blinking an eye (Professional Squid), so that's a value!

I can back my brother down south up on this one. Twin peaks has much better food than hooters and at least here in Dallas the talent of the waitstaff is quite a bit better too.

OK guys, I panicked and went off the res. I just purchased 2 tickets on Ticket Exchange. Section 605 Row T. The very top row, last seat before the roof. I want to be able to stand all game if I got a hankerin' and not have anyone hollerin' at me to sit down. $120 bucks a pop plus fees. $288 total. Sorry BFS for bailing on the proposed package but I'd still like to attend any get togethers you all set up Sat night or before the game.

Don't worry about it, man. Not at all. We may all end up going that route. It's hard to herd cats and we all have other things going on during the summer.

Based on response (and lack of response) as well as the daunting task of ordering and collecting payments, yours may be the way to go.

Thanks for reporting back. That is helpful.

Really would like to go but can not commit yet. Can anybody tell me the traffic situation thru Fort Worth and
Houston on a Friday or Saturday early? ie. is it easy to drive straight there or will my A.D.D. land me in Pensacola?

It's a piece of cake. Get through DFW and heading south on 45 into Houston. Take the 610 loop west and follow it out around the city to the south and then a little bit east until you see the stadium on your left, and exit.

There are numerous hotels along the north/south stretch of 610 around Westheimer that will put you within 10 minutes of Reliant. Traffic is really no problem on a Saturday morning.

In fact, anyone driving in from the north with a little extra time on that Friday night, or that Saturday morning, can call me as they pass through Conroe. My shop is located about 8 miles west of I-45 on FM 1488. You're welcome to stop in for a pit-stop or crash on the couch if need be. Just PM for contact details. :thirishdrinkers:

OK guys, I panicked and went off the res. I just purchased 2 tickets on Ticket Exchange. Section 605 Row T. The very top row, last seat before the roof. I want to be able to stand all game if I got a hankerin' and not have anyone hollerin' at me to sit down. $120 bucks a pop plus fees. $288 total. Sorry BFS for bailing on the proposed package but I'd still like to attend any get togethers you all set up Sat night or before the game.


Don't worry about it, man. Not at all. We may all end up going that route. It's hard to herd cats and we all have other things going on during the summer.

Based on response (and lack of response) as well as the daunting task of ordering and collecting payments, yours may be the way to go.

Thanks for reporting back. That is helpful.


Do you have an idea of when you will/won't know?

Give me until next Wednesday AT LATEST. I am going to try to get in contact with the Texans ticket rep I have been working with tomorrow. If not, then Monday. I want to get clarification from him on a couple issues.

I want assurances of where, soecifically, our seats would be and what the method of payment would be and exactly what numbers we would need and payment process and time.

I might be hosed here... My lease is up Oct 1 and this place has gone in the crapper so fast with the new management and explosion of screaming kids right outside my door from 4-10pm (I live above the pool). I might try and break out of my lease early depending on cost or dragging it out extra month. should have an idea by the weekend.

Yo!

For those of you traveling to Texas for the game make sure you tell your credit card company that you are going. Texas is a state that is so full of fraud that my bank won't allow my card to be used down there unless I notify them of the dates I'll be there.

I wanna make sure you guys have the funds to buy Leif and I a beer with your cards.


Wow, you bought that story from the bank.

Sounds like they know your personal history.

And why is your bank the only one I have ever heard doing this?

Virtually any bank allows credit cards to be used worldwide.

Do they also not allow you to use the card in Mexico or other countries?

OK, so I just had a conversation with my landlord (and ticket-benefactor) before he jumped in his Corvette to head to the airport for a week in the Virgin Islands... (bastage)

A Texans season ticket holder who has a tailgating spot closest to the stadium doors, he always has several overflowing coolers, awesome barbeque, and bloody-marys galore, going on before the game. Not the loudest or drunkest group (or the one with the most scantily-clad guests), but he's got the DirecTV dish set-up and a big-screen going on under the tent. A nice showing of adults, supporting their team with drink in hand, and very respectful opposing-teams fans. For those not aware, Texans tailgating is epic on all levels.

So here's the deal:
He's going to bring out an extra party tent so we can have a gathering spot for our group before the game starts in prime real estate. The food will need to be worked out and he said we will need to get a pass to occupy a neighboring spot to theirs, but he is totally on-board to helping us out with a little tailgating action for this relatively-special occasion. He said that what we're are doing is cool as hell and is willing to help us out with anything we need.

So, what do y'all think?

I think this is Most Definitely the way to go. The pre-game buffet/group tickets through the Texans seems like it would be a ton of hassle to get enough people on board and payments processed and so forth. This feels much more organic and manageable (as well as being a gracious and hospitable offer from you and your friend.)

It would mean that as far as game tickets go everybody would be on their own, bit that is probably the most realistic approach, anyway.

Lets do this.

I'm with BFS, sounds f'n awesome! Your neighbor is a saint, by the way, and deserves a ton of love for going out of his way like that. Everyone can chip in for food, which I'm sure won't be a problem or a hassle to the fine people that are embarking on this journey. The tent could be the official home base for the 2013 .Net Roadhawkin' (registered trademark of bestfightstory) Pregame Shindig. Does this mean we should just buy tickets for ourselves to the game, and then just meet up on Fri/Sat Night and meetup to tailgate before the game? Either way, this sounds like it's shaping up to be an awesome time.

The tailgate sounds like a blast and I would love to partake in that party.
Regarding seating, I agree the easy part is all men for themselves but I would like to sit with some hip folks dressed in blue. I am sure there will be brokers selling seats in groups of 4-8 so maybe some of us could keep an eye out for any of that action as it may appear.
My flight out departs at 5:30 Sunday night and it looks like I will have to adjust that for a later departure.

LD,

Bush or Hobby airport?

If Bush INTNTL, I might make that adjustment, just for safety sake. If it goes to OT, you'll never make it. Hobby is closer and not nearly as hard to get to check-in, but still pushing it.

Definitely. I have been watching with an eye for three things. Cost, Location, Quantity. When I find something I like I will buy a few and let others know where the tickets are available online. It would be really cool if we get get into a similar section/area.

Another thought I had is it would be extremely cool if we could all get First Row of any section throughout the stadium and hang multiple 12 flags all over the place.

Somebody in this thread already purchased seats and posted their location. As others do the same, I will make a consolidated list so that we can get an idea where we are representing and at what cost.

I have to believe the prices on StubHub will come down SOME prior to September. They are awfully expensive right now for a non-conference non-primetime game.

I agree about pricing possibly coming down as time rolls on. No need for a seller to offer a low price right now. However if both team are 3-0 heading into the game, you may want to check current refi rates to score the tix.
Thanks Houston about which airport. I have to check but I think I am flying in/out from Bush.
