View Full Version : Tips for a first-timer?

Aug 13th, 2010, 12:26 AM
Hi everyone,
I just bought a ticket for Friday's 11:00 session. I will drive early in the morning from Chicago to hopefully make it on time! I don't think I have ever been to Cincinnati, and I am going to search for a cheap place to sleep tomorrow night so I can do some exploring on Saturday. Any tips for things to do in or around the city? Any nice stops between Chicago and Cincy- cool ice cream shops, nice state parks, anything at all? Also, I have never been to the venue: any tips or words of warning (like don't bring water bottles, don't bring in food, don't buy the overpriced burgers or something)?

I bought a ticket in the 300 section (I think it is 332). Is it possible or easy or advisable to try to go down for a better seat?

Thanks a bunch for any input!

Day Session is easy to sneak down to. I got a Terrace seat and I snuck down to the front row. Night Session is more difficult.
