Decided to make the trip to Tampa Bay/Chiefs game in Tampa on Oct 14th, which happens to be on my 30th Birthday. This will be my 1st time in Tampa. We are going to spend the weekend in Tampa, what is there to do there as far as entertainment? Any other CPers going?

So I'm looking to go to this game here. I've been looking online and have found what I would guess are some decent prices (I don't know; I've never been to a professional game). Anyway, the ticket prices aren't a big deal, but I'm annoyed by the $30 service and $15 delivery fees tacked on by these online ticket sellers. There seem to be a shit ton of seats available and the Chiefs/Bucs is not a marquee matchup so I feel like it will stay that way. It just seems stupid to pay more than face value for tickets and then pay an additional $45 on top of that.

My question to those of you that have experience in the matter is: should I stop being a little bitch and just take those stupid extra fees or should I try my luck at buying tickets on gameday at the stadium? Are ticket prices generally cheaper at that point or more expensive? If they are more expensive, are they still competitive with the online ticket prices after all the additional fees or much more/much less?

Plenty of beautiful women, I'd say the most I've seen. Hard rock casino is something to check out. Might be a little chili for beach season but st Pete beach is awesome. Ybor city it's kid of like a New Orleans feel. SOHO is college life. Channel side is a good place to go on a Friday night. Anyway those are some places to start. Have a blast!

Okay Chief fans its time to finalize the tailgating logistics. Here is where our Tampa group is going to tailgate. So far Planeteers attending (BRC, Cosmic Pal, DAKCAPman, KC Native)

Lots open 3.5 hours before tailgating. We will tailgate in parking lot 1. It's a first come first serve lot. We will meet in the Parking lot at Champps, We can then drive over together and park/tailgate together. We will meet at 8:45 am in the parking lot. We will leave at 9:00 am for the short drive to the stadium to get in line for lot 1.

There is one guy saying on our groups site that he has a ticket to sell and will be at the tailgate.

10-13-2012, 03:32 PM
Ok, thanks. I'll help him out if I can but was wanting to see what other tickets were available before I commit.

I don't mind paying for good seats. It's my first NFL game and the Chiefs are my favorite team. The problem is, my friend said he might go and wasn't trying to spend more than $50 on a ticket (cheap ass). I can understand as the Chiefs aren't his team and the Bucs aren't exactly a huge entertainment draw. At any rate, I'll have to wait and see if he's even going to go, then find out what price he's willing to pay, and I'll have to go from there.

I didn't know that you are built like a tiny little ballerina.

If the game was in Miami, I would have driven up for it. I was down in Key West and Marathon, trying to drink all the beer down there. Note to self, don't do that the night before heading out deep sea fishing in rank seas, it makes for a long day.

I was out and about today. Thought about this thread and the comments in this thread about why Tampa doesn't sell out games. Here's the problem. People are having a pinic by the water, going fishing and taking their boat out on the water.

Not to be picky, but if you are going to show a beach pic from Tampa, you can surely do better than some ol' dude fishing couldn't you?
