Dallas Stars v St Louis Blues
We bought tickets on StubHub the night before the game. We waited at the StubHub office in Dallas to pick them up. The tickets were late by a few minutes. The tickets cost 34 each, plus 20 in service charges, totalling about 90. The tickets were 99 each at the gate.

Before the game, I also visited the JFK assassination site which is slightly south of the American Airlines Center on the same street.

Immediately before the game we hung out in front of the arena and at the attached Chilis restaurant. Great restaurant. The restaurant and event had games out front, like NHL 09 for PS3, remote cars, air hockey and target shooting. We got 10 in free credits at Chilis. Unfortunately, we had already eaten at Chilis. Also infront were two large moving screens (20 feet tall) playing highlights and ads.

The arena is spectacular. The seats were great and included a free program, which unknowingly we had already purchased. The roaming beer vendor had a bock beer (I think it was Steiner Bock). Very good!

The game was great. Chris Mason stoned the Stars and Marty Turco played subpar, including an assist on the first Blues goal.

My son really enjoyed the game. It was a 55 dollar cab ride each way to and from the campground in Arlington.
