If I'm going to eat downtown, I'm not eating at any of these places. I'm going to grab a bite somewhere else before I head somewhere to watch a game (Unless it's Oscar's). With that being said, the OG Good City Location makes a pretty solid burger. I'd say that's probably your safest bet if all's the same. The Punch Bowl Social aesthetic is such that anything you get is going to be woefully overpriced for what you're getting. Can't really speak on the Mecca, though would mostly assume you're getting pretty average bar fare there.

Thanks. Appreciate the info. With the game starting at 11 I don't really want to go eat somewhere before that and then watch the game somewhere else. Since I'm going to the home opener it would be convenient to just be down by FF. As I said in my original post I've eaten at a lot of places near the FF, I just thought maybe I'd try one of the 3 new one's I haven't eaten at yet.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Only eaten at Mecca once and had a burger, it's expensive, but, good food and worth it to experience that place.

Thank you, a good burger is always a solid option. I eat healthy most of the time but not on game days :)

Mecca > Punch Bowl

(sample size of one meal at each place)

The Mecca was absolutely slammed for the Badgers/Northwestern game. Great atmosphere. Good food. You may want to get there early for a prime Bucky/OUS viewing experience.

Appreciate it

Oh man I don't know that I could disagree with you any more than I do. I'll agree it's overpriced but compared to Miller Park, Camp Randall, Lambeau, etc I think Fiserv has the most diverse options and the best tasting options


Lambeau has to have some of the worst dining options in the NFL, which is bananas considering the market here. I can’t believe people get food during the game. FF absolutely blows it out of the water.

You don't have to go very far for some quality eats. Birch and Butcher's right up the road serving brunch without a wait and it's fantastic (just hit the top 30, big space, easy to get a table, they do simple really really well). You've got Point East a few blocks away from that. Elsa's on park, the options at Saint Kate (I know you have kids, Proof Pizza might be the play). Uncle Wolfies (probably too trendy at current, long waits) and View MKE (went into Wolf Peach and is better imo) up the hill.

A bit all over the place, but I've got a group I dine with, we've got a spreadsheet, restaurants excite me.

I noticed that this year's tickets say "Screenshots are not valid". Has anyone had an issue with that yet?

Man, I just realized that we only get 41 home games. No wonder season tickets didn't go up more this year. I feel like they should have to disclose that or do something to make it up to season ticket holders.This is the little stuff that the Bucks do that piss me off as a season ticket holder.

Edit: I'm an idiot. :crazy: :banghead:

However, I have had it being a season ticket holder.

Ticketmaster has a new barcode that doesn’t work as a screenshot. It refreshes a new barcode every few seconds so your tickets can’t be stolen. It’s actually pretty neat. I went to the Packers vs. Broncos game a few weeks ago and had to do it. My Ticketmaster account refers to them as “Safetix”. I assume that’s the system the Bucks are going to use as well.

I had that with Packer tickets as well. But I have Bucks tickets for the opener Saturday and the tix don't appear to have that. It looks like the barcode is static. So maybe they're implementing it at some point in the future.

I'm fine it, but I've had issues connecting to their WiFi when I'm there and I'd hate to be in line, having issues connecting, and holding up the rest of the line

Ahh yeah, it’s probably coming later in the season.

The articles I read said that they were starting with only the NFL and a few major touring acts. Wouldn't expect it for Bucks games until the 20-21 season I'd think. Seems like a slower rollout.

I was reading that the 49ers are implementing unlimited food and non alcoholic beverages for all (you don't have a choice) season ticket holders for next season. It's NOT transferable if the ticket is sold. It's also limited to about 15 food items. Plus they are increasing season ticket prices by 13%.

IMHO not a good idea to force your season ticket holders to pay more for, while unlimited, is mostly lousy food.

I'm using this as the general bitch about season tickets thread. I can't believe how hard it is to accept and send tickets. I have a pack I split with my friend and we have about 30 trades we need to make. I can't bulk selection send or accept tickets, so if he sends me 20 games, I have to click through multiple screens for each one. It is also impossible to see a full listing of what you paid and what you were charged, nor how many tickets you have to each game in list mode.

I feel that is a general thing with the NBA where they have things look cool with pictures and videos, but in reality all I want is quick access to clear information I need, whether it box scores, rosters, schedules, etc. BUT LOOK AT THIS 3 AND CELEBRATION BY DDV! taking up half the screen :x Style over substance. Rant over.
