Are you a sucker like me who missed out on Opening Day tickets and now find yourself forced to buy tickets off of the secondary market? Doesn't it suck? I mean, most of the people at the game aren't even going for their love of the Brewers. They're going to drink. Most of them won't even make it in for the first inning. Hell, I know some people are going just because they heard the Packers are going to be there. What the hell is that all about? In many ways Opening Day is a lot like New Year's Eve aka amateur night. People like us go to bars year round, but all the people who don't come out on New Year's Eve and act like idiots. WOOOO! The calendar year has changed by one! We are all one step closer to death! YAY! Who gives a crap? Act like an adult. (Says the guy who did a keg stand in his boxers.) Still, Opening Day holds a certain allure and I don't want to miss it. It's a fun time when the Brewers play their first game at home and I've been for the past few years. I want to go again.
So, the secondary market it is. For pretty much every game for the rest of the season I can end up going to the game for less than face value, but for this one I have to pay over market value for tickets. What to do?
Miller Park Drunk has partnered with TiqIQ for the 2011 season to help you find the best deals. TiqIQ puts all of the secondary markets (ebay, TicketNow, Stubhub, etc) and puts them on one site, sorting them by price so that you can find the best deal for the game you want to go to. Want to go to Opening Day? As of now tickets are starting at $50/each and the prices are only going down. The average ticket price is down from last week and should continue until gameday. Or if you want to skip Opening Day and head to Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday's games tickets are currently averaging only $25/each or about 22% below face value. It's not just a link dump, it actually tells you where the deals are. That's what I like about it.
The reason we decided to partner with TiqIQ is because we use them ourselves. I would never recommend something I didn't use myself. Buying tickets from the Brewers is nice for a walk up, but most of the time we can find better tickets and better deals by checking out TiqIQ. Last season we sat behind home plate, ten rows up for under $30. You can't beat that.
We'll do our best not to bombard you with advertising during the season and will only do a single post about tickets before each home series. We will also clearly tag each post with [ad] so that you know what you are getting into, but we really think you should check this service out. If you want to go to the game just look here instead of going to Stubhub or ebay first. You'll get the same results, it'll be faster and it'll be easier. You'll get what you want, it'll help us and everyone will win. We've got the widget setup below for the first ten home games of the season and if you were thinking of going to one of those just have a look and see what there is to offer. If you want to go to one after that click the link up top that says "Brewers tickets". It's that easy. Thank you.
