Just priceline a room if you dont have a place. Thats what I did for my trip down to Tampa last week. Worked out great.

hotwire.com has a room in the arena district at a 4 star hotel for 69 dollars. didn't say what hotel, you just have to kinda jump in blind. I booked the room for 86 dollars total and it ended up being the hyatt about 6 -7 blocks away from the arena. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Also does anyone else know what else there is to do for a day in columbus outside of pre and post game libations?

I've used priceline for Columbus rooms 3 times, and I've ended up with the Hyatt Capitol Square, the Westin, and this hotel I'm in in December, all for under $80 each. When there's no OSU game in town the hotels are super empty.

Its a great hotel, my favorite in Columbus. Has a good sports themed bar-restaurant open late off the lobby with pretty good food and drafts. Its about a 15 minute walk to the arena but cabs are plentiful and will set you back under $10 each way. I was hoping I'd get this hotel when I did priceline for this trip but it didn't happen.

I have some Sky Terrace Standing Room Only tickets for $20 each. The Sky Terrace will most likely be about 90% Penguin fans.

Is everyone still planning on going to Mozaik? I heard the "R-Bar" was the place to be on game nights...

I go out to Columbus often and typically catch the Pens games on TV there.

Pretty cheap to drink and this place will be packed before and after the game with Pens fans.

Mozaik is a pretty lame (in my opinion) wanna be dance club. Not really my cup of tea...

The R-Bar however is awesome. Every Jackets game is shown on the TVs, and they're proud to boast that if you want to see the Buckeyes play during a Jackets game that you should go somewhere else. It's pretty much the only place that has legitimately embraced hockey as opposed to the other 'professional' sports team in the city. Every television is tuned to a game or NHL Network and the bar is set up to serve 360 degrees around a mockup of the Nationwide jumbotron.

There's even a penalty box booth and Red Wings logos in the urinals.

Thats where I am at as well. You should of put in a lower amount to start. Someone try starting at $40 or $45 and see if they accept it. They accepted $50 from me for Dec 4th.

I started at $40 and they rejected it. The cheapest I got was $50.

I know someone who tried $45 on price-line and no hotel took it. Guess $50 is the cheapest. Hyatt on capitol have a bar?

Dang, this weekend just opened up last week after being blacked out all summer. If anyone has two tickets that they decide they don't want to use, let this LGPer know, please.
