    If you are already going to this game please put your name down below. Are you driving, flying, Amtrak, bus? Do you have a place to stay? We're trying to get a headcount of how many people from Boston are going.

    You can purchase tickets here.

    There is a cheap Motel 6 across from the stadium that goes for about $60 a night.

    I'm heading down on Friday, May 28th, coming back on Sunday the 30th. Staying at Guest Quarters downtown (got the deal through Hotwire), taking the Amtrak Acela there and back. Plan to wear my Boston Chapter t-shirt on Friday night to whatever party there is.

    This isn't really a viewing part related post but that will be coming soon anyway.

    So it looks like there will only be two send off games before the squad leaves for South Africa and both of those games are being played in the northeast. Are you going? Do you want to go but have made plans yet or purchased tickets? Not to worry because we have got you taken care of.

    AO Boston is organizing a bus trip to the Hartford game and we’ve been allotted additional tickets to both games in Hartford and Philadelphia.

    The Brass Bonanza Bus
    is running from the Phoenix Landing in Central Square to Rentschler Field in Hartford. The cost of the bus is only $25 and includes food & drink on the bus. Deposits of $10 or full payments of $25 can be made at the bar or via pay pal through Garrett at garrett.quinn.3000@gmail.com Tickets in the supporters section are $34 (includes fees for handling, PayPal charges, etc.) and can be purchased via PayPal through Garrett. You should arrive at the Phoenix Landing no later than the 3pm if you want to get a good seat on the bus. It is very likely the bus will return after the T stops running so please plan accordingly; on street parking is available in the area and there will be ample cabs available. Be smart and don’t drink & drive.

    If you’re going to Hartford the night before the game there will be a pub crawl starting at Vaughn’s Public House at 7:00pm. It’s located at 59 Pratt Street, Hartford, CT. (860-882-1560) The pub crawl will include the following drinking establishments: Vaughn’s Public House, Koji, Asylum Café, Mayor Mike’s Restaurant, and Pigs Eye Pub. For the media whores ESPN will be filming the pub crawl.

    Day of game will start at Vaughn’s and a shuttle bus from the bar to the stadium/tailgate will be available. More details on this will be available soon.
    Hotel & airfare deals are available for this game.

    If you’re flying to Hartford for some strange reason a discount on Continental Airlines is available for paid members of AO. Please contact us to obtain the code for the discount.
    A hotel discount is available at the Residence Inn by Marriot in Downtown Hartford at 942 Main St, (860-524-5550) Group discount rate of $149/night through code: AMOAMOD It is within easy walking distance of several restaurants and bars. Shuttle will likely be available by game day but just in case the stadium is only a 10 minute drive from the hotel.

    Thanks to AO Hartford for all the hard work.
    Go Whalers.

    A bus is not running to Philly for this game but we do have a limited number of tickets available for this game. Tickets are $28 each and there is a $7 fee per order. Contact Garrett for information on tickets.

    Night before and day of game activities have been organized by AO Philly and will take place at McFadden’s Ballpark Pub at Citizens Bank Park. The pub is a massive establishment and can hold up to 1,800 people. It is within short walking distance of Lincoln Financial Field. Food & drink specials are in place for AO members so wear your gear so you can get the various discounts in place. There are no plans for an organized tailgate at this time.

    The Continental Airlines discount is not available for this game because it is Memorial Day Weekend.

    If, for whatever, reason you’re on our email list and you live in NYC or DC there are buses running from both places to Philly for the game. Contact AO DC or AO NYC for details.

    THE DEADLINE FOR TICKETS IS MAY 7, 2010, 11:59PM

    Are you guys planning anything in terms of Viewing Parties for the Turkey game? I was thinking CBS Scene would be a good venue for those who can't make it down to Philly but would like to go to the Revs game in addition to a viewing. I know you Boston guys have worked with them in the past...
