Office Hours Reminder

Since there are a couple big games this weekend, here is a reminder of our office hours at both office locations.

Our Minneapolis office hours are Monday - Friday from 9am-6pm, Saturday 9am-1pm and Sundays 10am-noon if there is a Viking game.

Our St. Paul office hours are Monday - Friday from 9am-6pm unless there is a Wild game, in which case we are open until game time. For weekend Wild games, we are open 2 hours prior to gametime, until the game starts.

Wild vs. Canadiens -Tonight!

If you're thinking about getting Wild hockey tickets for tonight's game against the Montreal Canadiens, you still have a little time. Surprisingly, we still have a few tickets left and starting at just $39, that's a deal you can't beat. Don't forget, we also have an office right by the Xcel in St. Paul, so if you can't make it to Minneapolis, stop by our St. Paul office to get your tickets! That location will be open until game time tonight. GO WILD!!

Gophers Football vs. Northwestern

So, I've been wondering why our Gopher football tickets have been selling so quickly for this one certain game. Then I finally just realized it's Homecoming all week for the U of M students! If you plan on going to the homecoming game against Northwestern this Saturday, and you haven't got your tickets yet, you'd better get them now as they seriously may be gone by then! Oh, and it starts at 11 so don't stay out too late trick-or-treating! :)

Wild Tickets Almost Gone!

As we get further into hockey season, we're beginning to see an unusual trend in ticket sales. We're already almost sold out for the games on October 23rd and 25th! It's a little strange that we're selling so fast this early into the season, but it's also very encouraging. We normally don't start picking up in Wild sales until after Thanksgiving. Maybe it's a sign that Minnesota Wild tickets will be a very hot commodity in the ticket market this year! GO WILD!!

FREE Lunch Fridays!

One of the many perks about working at Ticket King Minneapolis, is getting free lunch every Friday! One of our favorite places to order from is Punch Pizza. It's actually grown on me since I've worked here, probably because they force me to eat it every single week. Okay, so maybe they don't.. But they like to give me crap because I didn't want it one day! Of course that was before I knew about the Greco salad, which seems to be the favorite of most of us. At least it's pretty healthy. Not that Mary or Kirsten need to worry about that. I swear those two could eat all day long and never gain an ounce. Luckily for us all, it was free- Thanks Michael & Brian!

Jackson Browne Tickets Sold Out!

For several decades now, Jackson Browne has been selling out shows nationwide. It seems like his popularity has grown a lot over the years. Maybe his fan base is increasing due to his deep-thinking, peaceful and romantic flair? Or maybe it's a combination of his style and his dedication to his career that has made him so popular. Whatever the reason, our Orpheum Theatre tickets for his concert went fast here at Ticket King. Looks like another sold out show for Jackson Browne! If you attended, let me know how it went!

Love In The Air?

So, just in case you don't know who Phil is yet... You better ask Nicole!! The cutest thing happened today- Just as we were giving Nicole our daily dose of Phil-related questions, some guy (no, not Phil) with a special delivery appeared at the front door. I think we all knew what it was and who they were for before the guy said it, but take a guess...

Flowers for Nicole from....... Phil!!

AWWWWW!! I still don't know which was better- The timing of the delivery, or the look on her face when she saw them. I think the rest of us got almost as excited about the surprise as she did. There was also a cute little teddy bear attached to them with a sweet message from her little minion. Maybe he wants to be HER teddy bear? Awwww... Isn't that just the cutest thing you've ever heard?!

That was the highlight of the day here at Ticket King :D

We also got to hear about the spectacular blind date Kirsten went on last night!! Ok, actually it sounded pretty short (shh... so was he)... but not too sweet. After hearing about all the fun he had in high school, the poor girl tried to avoid an akward ending to the night by simply yelling "Bye!" and running to her car after dinner. Haha! I wonder how often this happens... And who sends spanish text messages- hours after the date, when they're wasted anyways??? Unfortunately the poor guy was no Phil so he didn't make it past date #1. Better luck next time Kirsten!!
