There's a new 'game' in town here.....
The NBA Hornets are now playing in New Orleans. The home games have become a see-and-be-seen event!
Lots of good looking girls....LOTS.....go to these games. You single guys, and ladies, out there should make it a point to go to a game while you're here in town. Trust me on this one....
This week the Hornets hosted the Los Angeles Lakers in front of 18,500 fans in the N.O. Arena. The atmosphere was electric and enjoyable. Everyone was dressed sharp and socializing as much as they were watching the game!
Tickets can be had for as little as $7.00/game (waaay up and in VERY limited quantity) or up to $225.00/game for court-side, Jack Nicholson-type seats right on the court.
This week I saw Dustin Hoffman, John Cusak and Lenny Kravitz at the Hornets/Lakers game. Tonight the Hornets face off againts the Chicago Bulls at 7:30pm.
The Arena is located about 5 minutes from the French Quarter. A $5.00 cab ride or a 15 minute walk from most of the hotels in the area.
Everyone's very excited about having this new team in town.
There's tickets available to almost every game. The ticket office is on the 1st floor of the Arena right next to the Superdome.
Try to get tickets in the "lower-bowl" for the best seats. Those can range from $110/seat to $48/seat.
The games usually end before 10:30 pm and start around 7:30pm. So you have time to eat dinner before and still go out afterwards!
Enjoy your visit to New Orleans....And, Mardi Gras is right around the corner, ya'll......
