To avoid any confusion, those of us doing the Rochester thing can coordinate here. So far, to my understanding we have MODO, LTS, Cereal, Taro and myself with more tickets available. Plenty of time to join us. I have a preference for pre game but am so easy that I can do anything. When are you arriving in Rochester, MODO? Do we have time for more than one stop? No obligations to hang out if you just want a ticket, folks. Like before. Is all good.

I actually spoke with Mrs. iT the other day about this and she reached out today to a friend in the Amerks. I speculated that Ullmark would be pumped to have a fan from home in town. I then started to wonder. Do you actually know him? I have a vague memory of a post about Linus being from your hometown?

I'm trying to get the word through. No promises. They're pretty cool about fan participation so even if we let them know when we get there they'd be likely to make mention.

Also I'm very limited as to how I can "hook peeps up". I'm just a little F'n worm on a big F'n hook(kudos to you if you know what movie that's from). And mostly it will be all Mrs iT's doing.

We should start making more concrete plans.  Mods, could you please pin this..?

 

...

 

We should definitely plan to get to the arena by 6pm for the pre-game happy hour.  Live band ( https://www.neilvandorn.com/this Friday) plus as many $2 Genny's as your stomach can handle in 60 minutes :devil:

 

As for me, I can gather for pre-game tomfoolery at any time.  Would 4 or 4:30pm work?

 

...

 

I may have a few friends/family also trying to get to this game, so I may sneak away for a period or two, or for a beer or three.  We'll see how it plays out.

I'm going to try and break away from work at 3pm.  So I can meet up where ever we would like at that point.  If it's early enough Dino BBQ offers the right choices too because it won't be too crowded and then we can walk.

 

I'm game to meet anywhere however.  So if someone has a desire lay it out there.

Lets go with dinos then, sounds perfect!

So to my understanding so far it's MODO, LTS, Cereal, Taro, sodbuster and the iTs. If any of you want to bring your partners I have enough tickets. I'd planned on taking the whole day off but I missed a day and a half sick in bed so I'm going to do a partial day. Unless there's a rain out then it's all day off. I'll meet you guys anywhere. 4pm sounds good. I'll do earlier if I get done early. Sounds like Brewhouse, Dinosaur or Exchange are the feasible options. Brewhouse isn't walking distance but is a short drive. I have an extended cab truck so I could drive a few of us over to the arena if need be. I usually get to the arena by six mostly for the free parking. The $2 drafts are a bonus. I need to get there early enough to redeem the vouchers anyway. MODO, Mrs. iT had a return email from her contact. He's working hard on it but may not have an answer until Friday. I'll pm you tonight or tomorrow about this. Anyone else wants to join in? Thanks to the mods for the pin!
Dino wins! MODO needs to fill his belly with ribs while he's here!

I plan on being home from work by 3 tomorrow, so 4 sounds perfect.

Not sure when they will start taking reservations but I know they won't honor it unless the entire party is there. 

 

So, let's get a count and set a start time of 4pm for the table?  I'd request bar area that way we can just mingle around for anyone who might not be there at that time?  Or we could just lock down the bar itself since we're not a huge group?

 

I'm still hoping to be there around 3-3:30pm. So chime in if you want catch up a bit earlier.

I agree that we should call it an even 4pm and make a reservation.

 

I think we're at six confirmed for 4pm, plus Taro...?

Right now I should be able to make Dinosaur. It's not 100%, but it should work; I'll let you know early afternoon (like, right after lunch) if I can't get there that early. I am 100% in for the game.

I'll plan on bringing a fistful of vouchers with me tomorrow just in case. To be honest, this may be my last year as a season ticket holder for a while. I can't even give away my unused tickets. What is left after this game will be available for any of the remaining season. They're not good for post season though, oh wait, you mean they're not making the playoffs? They're in the bottom of the league you say? Hmmm and not for a lack of talent? I'll still go to a lot of games but they raised my seat prices and with the poop sandwich I got this year I'll stick with a game by game system.

That sucks... it makes it tough to be a season ticket holder for that level of output.

I am going to try to be there before 4pm.  I may have a call I have to be on sometime between 3 and 4pm, but I'm shooting for being at Dino BBQ between 3 and 4 as well.

MODO,

 

I think the current crew (iT +1, LTS, sodbuster, Taro, Cereal, MODO; possibly Wildcard and AndrewAmerk) is all in the Rochester area.

 

I'm guessing you don't have a rental car?  Maybe you can lure a Buffalo-area poster to Rochester for the evening (using phat panny's)?

 

Or, I'd suggest renting a car for <24 hours.  Using www.carrentals.com -- I see that you can rent an economy car from Hertz at 538 Pearl St. in Buffalo for just $24/day (so like from 12pm today til 12pm tomorrow).

 

Hope that helps!  See y'all later.

Hmm.  I guess you were looking at Adirondack Trailways?

 

If you insist on taking the bus, I have found that Megabus may work for you!  Departing Buffalo at 12:20pm!  Departing Rochester at 1:55am.  $32 total after fees:

 

Journey: Buffalo, NY, Downtown Terminal to Rochester, NY, East Broad Street (Between Chestnut St and Broadway St)
Date: Friday March 24, 2017
Leaving: 12:20 PM
Arriving: 2:15 PM
Price: $15.00

Journey: Rochester, NY, East Broad Street (Between Chestnut St and Broadway St) to Buffalo, NY, Downtown Terminal
Date: Saturday March 25, 2017
Leaving: 1:55 AM
Arriving: 3:45 AM
Price: $15.00
 

EDIT: It looks like that would work great.  By the way, the bus stop in Buffalo appears to be close-ish to you, and the bus stop in Rochester is very close to the arena... don't think you'll get mugged there at 1:55am :)

Nice, man!  You can walk to Dinosaur BBQ or Blue Cross Arena (or any of the places below) really easily from where the bus will drop you off.  (Also you should have wifi on the bus, by the way!)

 

You'll have a couple hours to kill.  Things you could check out, all within walking distance:

 

Strong Museum, just south.  "Museum of play" -- It's got like old toys and stuff.

 

Poke your head into Eastman Theatre (enter at Gibbs and E Main St.).

 

Spot Coffee is near there on East Ave, as well as Victoire - decent food, Belgian beers.  (What has become of Milestones these days?)

 

Further east on East Avenue, you'll have Little Theatre on the left, and all the East/Alexander bars.  This is where you'll find the sophisticated Rochester nightlife (tongue in cheek), open til 2am.  Old Toad is a good, British pub-style.  Daily Refresher, Ox and Stone, City Grill, Murphy's Law....

 

Roc Brewing is also a sweet little brewery!  It is on Union Street, very close to your bus stop.  Could be a great choice for when you arrive, before Dinosaur BBQ?  (Actually it opens at 3pm.  Man, maybe I'd join you!  Haha.)

 

Lastly, Marshall St Bar and Grill.  I may end up there after the Amerks game, as they'll have the USA-Honduras soccer game on at 10:30pm.

If i were able to get into Buffalo I would help you out but I am stuck.

 

We need to drag a Buffalo person to Rochester for the evening.  Post it in the other thread and maybe get a bite?  Might be too late now if you are already getting on the bus though!

 

I have a call from 3-3:30 or so.  I will be at Dino BBQ not too long after that!  Certainly game for after the game as well.
