Yesterday, we went to see the Boston Celtics play against the San Antonio Spurs at the TD Banknorth Garden, or the ?Boston Garden? for those that live in the Boston Area. It was a fun game to watch and we were disappointed that the Celtics lost.
Here are some notes about yesterday?s game:
Driving to the Game
We were stuck in a little bit of traffic on Storrow Drive, this was due to a lane closure near the back bay. Next time I?ll listen to the traffic report. Memorial Drive would have been a better option.
If you are planning to park at the Boston Garden plan to arrive early. It cost $25 to park at the Garden and you have to pay before you get to your car. There are paying stations near the elevator doors.
Be on the lookout for non-traditional parking spots. We were able to park next to the 4th floor elevator, which didn?t look like a parking spot, but the parking attendant told us it was.
There are two elevators that take you down to the parking garage. Just be aware of what elevator you used when you come up to the main floor.
We decided to eat lunch at the stadium instead of going to the game. There?s a lot of good places to eat on the main level of the Boston Garden, but since our seat were in the Balcony, I thought it would be best to wait till we got up there. This was a good idea since the lines weren?t that long.
The ProShop on the ground floor was very busy and it was very difficult to walk around. We had a hard time looking for shirts and other Celtics memorabilia. On the main floor inside the Garden was a Fan Club store and it was pretty empty about 30 minutes before game time. We were able to find a shirt at a reasonable price.
Enjoy the game!
Leaving the Game
We decided to leave the game early to beat the traffic. We left with 5 minutes on the game clock and this was a great decision! We encountered zero traffic getting out of the parking garage.
