    Due to a last minute cancellation my 2 tickets from USSoccer are available at $18 per plus fed ex charges for Friday Delivery. I believe the rest of the ESC/NJB crew are taken care so respond back (with delivery address) before 5pm EDT.

    not close at all...
    here's a map just so that you can see what I'm talking about...

    transportation options:
    Taxi (safe taxi) ask at the hotel lobby for the number

    there's actually a holiday Inn in Calzada de tlalpan... PRETTY CLOSE to the stadium... i'd strongly recommend you to check this one better

    hey K_13 .... the Holiday Inn in Tlalpan is not a good option, the near area is not so friendly at all ... ( portales ) really a problematic area !! , from Holiday Inn of Zocalo the best option is ride the metro in Zocalo station and go over Line 2 or Blue until Tasqueña , switch to ligth rail until reach Azteca station , u will be in front of ... only u need to cross a small bridge walking and you will have the Azteca in front of you !! , to the guy who want some bar with German and Belgium beers, beside the King´s pub ( ralley a great option ) , Celtic´s and Irish Pub , over Insurgentes Av . there is another one ( Wicked Pub ) also a great option !!

    I just noticed a tiny little detail. In the Zona Rosa, the hotel where I and others are staying at is around the corner from the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum and two blocks from ....
    check this
    Plaza Jorge Washington.

    I didn't know his name was Jorge....

    I think I know where I will party if we win....:)

    Just did some research into picking up tickets before getting to the stadium. We should be able to pick them up right at the Airport!

    Libreria Gandhi: Terminal 2. Ticketmaster outlet. Scroll down on the link:

    http://www.gandhi.com.mx/index.cfm/id/f:corporativo-sucursales/seleccion/0

    Shoot, looks like I'll be flying into Terminal 1. If anyone tries this, please let me know if the store is before or after the security check.

    Just a quick heads-up: Be sure to inform your bank/credit card company that you will be traveling to Mexico City. If you don't there is a high probability your cards will get blocked if you try to use them. MC is considered high-risk for fraudulent activity.

    I've seen that store. Thats outside security. take the tram from terminal one over to two. I think that it's in the bottom floor (arrivals) but could be wrong. still, it is outside.
