The Toughest Ticket in Town: Seeing The Flyers With My Dad at the Perennially Sold Out Spectrum

Sep 10, 2019 No Comments by

by Barry R. For a young teen in Philadelphia in the 1974-1975 timeframe, there was no greater love than the Broad Street Bullies: Bobby Clarke, Bernie Parent, Bill Barber, Rick MacLeish, Dave Schultz, et al. They dominated the NHL with brawn, offensive firepower, and amazing goaltending, and every kid I knew loved them. They would […]

Rock of Ages – Glee meets Metal

May 13, 2016 No Comments by

What a great surprise this show was. It is completely like Glee meets Metal, or the other way around. The way they use the metal songs of the 80’s, particularly, the ballads was genius. Seeing Dee Snider brought back memories of growing up in Long Island and seeing Twister sister at Speaks in Island Park. […]

Got my Chuck E. Cheese on!

Feb 15, 2016 No Comments

by Charly P. Chuck E. Cheese was fun. I played a lot of games, I got a lot of prizes. One of them was edible. It was a lolipop – a big long swirly – I call it “The Swirl”. I went with my 3 cousins, one of them is annoying but I can’t say […]

US Soccer loses to Honduras

Jan 08, 2016 No Comments

by John Santos The ticket was from (you guessed it) the January match.  Unfortunately for US fans, the US lost 3-1.  It’s also notable as it was the first match I had ever attended in person in which the US lost.  It was even worse for my brother as it was only the second ever […]

Monday Night Football @ the New York Jet Game

Jan 03, 2016 No Comments

Monday Night Football at the Jet Game. I’d like to think of myself as a “glass half full” type of guy. But, growing up in Queens, and being genetically programmed to be a Met and Jet fan has turned me more into a “dribble glass” kinda guy.

Christmas Traditions The Nutcracker

Dec 22, 2015 No Comments

by Emma D Every year since I was two or three years old I would go with my parents, grandmother, and aunt to see the same production of The Nutcracker. It was the most spectacular thing, and that was what Christmas meant to me with the magic and ballet. It was a tradition that continued […]

Nov 26, 2015 No Comments

By Matt Peter If Ranger tickets weren’t $200, you heard me, $200 a pop for pedestrian seats, this day would have never happened. But when you are trying to get 5 tickets for a Ranger-Flyer game at the Garden the day after Thanksgiving in New York, you better have an extra arm to sell or […]

Nov 26, 2015 No Comments

by Paul Dugan An Arlo Guthrie concert is an experience and no matter how many you see, it’s always different. I’ve seen him four times the most recent this past weekend at the Colonial Theatre in Keene NH. The Colonial is a great place to see a show, with just 888 seats it’s a very […]

Terror Behind the Walls!

Oct 27, 2015 No Comments

Eastern State Penitentiary Terror Behind the Walls! Supposedly it’s one of the best in the country. It was definitely creepy, and the costumed characters outside the penitentiary walls were the best. They were walking around in character, taking tickets, and just scaring people when they weren’t expecting it. In general, I don’t like to be […]
