    Event Where My YVR Peeps At???

    I'm going to be in Vancouver for the game on July 11th. Going to the game and was wondering who here has some season seats or is going to the game and wants to grab a beer or something? Always fun to meet up with other Esksfans members...

    Any tips on where to get seats? Haven't been there since Grey Cup in 05...

    Oh man, I'd love to come...but I'll be in Michigan! Hopefully some others will be around.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I'd be interested too - just moved to Vancouver in March and have had this game circled in my calendar for awhile now!

    I'm thinking the $25 cheap seats but have no idea what they'll be like to see the action. I guess the giant screen up top will help.

    they have the whole upper bowl cut off, so you still should be in the lower bowl.

    If you're in the cheap seats, you'll be in the end zone, so you won't see the big screen. They have smaller screens for that. I kind of enjoy being in the end zone. You see things that you'd otherwise miss, especially on kick returns.

    I was there last October for a game I can tell you their concessions are amazing and that the shark club lounge near the stadium has really good food.

    I'll be around for the game, but have a few plans in the works that are still coming together. Normally sit on the side behind the visitor's bench - around section 116 I believe. I would expect that it should be easy enough to purchase a cheaper seat and move if someone isn't averse to that sort of thing.

    The BC sports hall of fame is there at the stadium, there's a casino that's not too far, there's also a marijuana cafe like place that's not too far but if that's not your scene you can scratch that one. There's also a REALLY nice restaurant called Frankie's Italian where I had one of the best meals I've ever had in my life near the stadium (and I've had a lot of meals cause I'm a fat guy)

    Frankie's is typically my pre-game stop too!

    Recommend taking in the atmosphere just outside the stadium in advance of the game. Usually have a band out in the plaza by the Terry Fox statues.

    Awesome! Thanks for the great recommendations. The weed cafe followed by some Italian food and the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame sounds like an ideal pre-game!

    walk down Horner Street a few blocks and it's on the right corner about the 400 or 500 block. Nice folks I wound up watching some of the Sunday night football game when I was there.

    Jokes aside, Iím not sure which one heís referring to... but I believe there is still the Cannabis Culture lounge on W Hastings only 5 or so blocks from the stadium.

    I’m there every couple weeks for work so I just happened to arrange my meetings in such a way that it’s just easier to stay the night and since I’m staying. I might as well go to a game right? No sense sitting in my suite all night.

    If y’all want another option just to mix things up a bit, you can pre-game in the False Creek/redeveloped Olympic Village area & then take the boat across False Creek to BC Place. It’s only $3.50 per person & super fast. It stops on the back side BC Place, but it’s easy enough to walk around to the front & check out their version of tailgating before the game starts.

    There are also lots of food options in Yaletown depending on how much of a foodie you are & it’s a literal 5-minute walk to either the front side or back side depending on which way you go.

    Flights and hotel are booked... Just have to get a ticket now. Like I said, it's been a few years since I was there - is there a lot of walk up traffic? Should I get a ticket ahead of time or can I get something decent walking up?

    You could take a look on Ticketmaster seat map view to see what’s still available & then decide.

    I will definitely be wandering around before the game! Look for an Esks away jersey. #17 PLANDOWSKI. Just yell "hey Boydo!!" and I'll turn around...
