    I understand that quite a few will be going to this game and I thought it would be good to get a thread together for travel, accommodation, tickets and meeting places.

    I've booked into Hotel VQ for Saturday and Sunday night ($121) and return flights from Frontier ($172 each)

    I waited for the single game tickets and half price tickets but unless you want nose bleeds at $39 or club level (Donk Central) for $300, expect to pay $160 - $230 for field level tickets.

    I'm on vacation and will not get to see another game until London 2012 so I don't mind paying $200+ for a good view but I appreciate that other peoples budgets might not be the same.

    Hotel VQ runs a shuttle bus to and from Downtown which includes the Wynkoop brew pub -
    http://www.wynkoop.com/ - so no problems with transport, especially after sampling copius quantities of beer!

    Hotel VQ is within sight of Invesco.

    Does anyone need a single ticket other than Pointy? You can buy in even but not odd numbers so we need someone to add to make it four.

    Wynkoop Brewery Sat. night for some dinner and good beer. Jeremy aka chefbolt works there. There should be a few bolt fans in attendance. Lot M for the Charger tailgate on Sunday. Look for the Charger flag on the 25 foot pole. Josef who lives in Denver hosts it every year. Had 100+ Charger fans the last couple of years. Donko fans hate it that we are there in big numbers. Ha Ha!

    Mr. and Mrs. RTL will be there. Leaving SD Sat afternoon and staying until Monday. NO plans yet other than the game, so we'll try to make it to any meetups if possible.

    Mike, this will be 7 years straight my wife and I are going up to Denver. Just so you will know, Hotel VQ is not very good. I know Bolt fans that have stayed there with bad reviews. Try to find something downtown or close to it if you can.

    OK. Just trying to help. Any of the hotels by the airport are a good deal. You might need a car though. Carrentals.com has good prices. Check hotels.com or expedia.com for the hotel.

    I'll be there on Sunday. Going to hit up the Wynkoop for lunch before the game, then take the light rail into the stadium. From the looks of it on Google Maps, the station is right across the street from the Wynkoop.

    Jeremy who works at Wynkoop has got us set up at 8 p.m. Saturday night. Come mingle with other Bolt fans and watch a little college ball. Their food is also very unique and good.

    I'll be at Wynkoop with a large group on Sunday Morning for the early games. But not planning on going out on Saturday. We are having all our guests over for dinner (all friends I had season tickets with before I moved to Denver)

    I want to eat at a great steakhouse when I'm there Sat. Any suggestions? Buckhorn Exchange comes up alot on google searches so I'm leaning that way.

    Why not go to Elway's Steakhouse with your Charger gear on. How's that for a statement.

    That's one of the Denver games I went to. But I was at Wynkoop after the game, not before, but still saw a lot of bolt jerseys there. Good times, except for the outcome, but Wynkoop makes some fine brews.
