There really is not much taking place in Chicagoland or Milwaukee today. Your best bet is to attend the AHL game at Allstate Arena between the Chicago Wolves and the Rockford IceHogs.
Other than that you could watch the Northwestern women’s basketball team host Illinois at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Not much is taking place in Chicagoland tonight. If you have to attend a game, I would recommend either the UIC Flames (1:00 pm tip off) or Loyola Ramblers (3:00 pm tip off) men’s basketball games.
Another option is to attend the DePaul women’s basketball game at 7:00 pm tonight. McGrath Arena is in a great area of Chicago and will give you a lot of pre-game or post-game dining options.
Chicago, Chicago Bulls, NBA, Portland Trail Blazers »
When you go to as many sporting events as I do, you eventually get to a point where you say – “there has to be some sort of degree or diploma for all the dumb stuff I know.” Northwestern does actually have a Masters Degree in Sports Administration. Of course, I am being tongue in cheek here; it is actually a good program. But I cannot help but make fun of myself – at commencement while others were handing in Masters Theses entitled “The Photosynthetic Properties of the Midwestern Fern,” …
Your best bet tonight is to attend the Chicago Bulls game versus the Portland Trail Blazers. Since the Bulls are playing Portland, tickets should be available and cheap outside of the United Center tonight.
Last time I saw a Northwestern and Iowa match up was this past football season in Iowa City. I will not indulge with all the details but, of course, Northwestern won to thwart Iowa’s perfect season. At that time, I carpooled to Iowa City with some hard-core, self-identified “corn-fed” fans. My greatest feat that day was not getting a ticket for face value or free beer from tailgates but getting into the car with my Iowa friends for our ride back home to Chicago.
Fast forward to tonight, when Northwestern hosted …
Lots of college basketball taking place in Chicago tonight. Your best bet is to attend the Iowa at Northwestern game at Welsh-Ryan Arena which starts at 6 pm – tickets should be cheap outside of the arena.
If you are in Milwaukee the Admirals (AHL) are hosting the Rockford IceHogs at the Bradley Center at 7 pm.
The Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls are both home tonight. Both games should be easy and cheap to get into. The “get in” price for tonight’s Bulls game is currently $10 and $8 for the Bucks game on StubHub – but only use StubHub as a guide since their pricey add on fees more than doubles the cost of your ticket.
Last week I bought seats for Bulls games in section 103 for $30 and section 104 for $40 on Madison Ave. outside of the United Center. Currently, …
Are you looking for a sporting event to attend in Chicago or Milwaukee today? If you want to make the trip to Milwaukee your best bet is WWE presents Smackdown at the Bradley Center. Tickets are available so you should be able to get tickets for cheap outside of the arena.
If you are staying in Chicago then you may want to consider the DePaul women’s basketball game at McGrath Arena. McGrath Arena is located in the heart of Lincoln Park with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from before …
Chicago, Chicago Bulls, NBA, Philadelphia 76ers »
It was a Saturday night and I had nothing going on. So, of course, I chose to attend the Chicago Bulls game versus the Philadelphia 76ers.
I did not have a ticket ahead of time so I planned to buy one outside of the United Center. I was hoping to buy a ticket similar to the one I did on Tuesday night but for a cheaper price.
Once again I was able to park on Washington Blvd. in between Wood St. and Wolcott Ave. for free. It is only a short two …
Evanston, Indiana Women's Basketball, Northwestern Women's Basketball, Women's College Basketball »
Once again Nicole needed to be on campus tonight. With the Northwestern women’s basketball team playing at home I decided to make the trip to Evanston. I dropped Nicole off at the Sociology department and drove up to Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Tonight may have been the first time I have paid full price (only $7) for a Northwestern women’s basketball game. In the past, the women’s games have always seemed to have some special that allowed you to buy a discounted ticket.
The women pulled off something the men could not …
