2011 Trips

Postby Hawkeye on Sun Jun 05, 2011 8:08 pm

Going to the St Kilda vs West Coast match in July at Etihad stadium. Haven't been to this venue before in the past. I was wondering if its best to buy tickets beforehand or just rock up to the game? I like to be elevated, so don't want the boundary seats if you know what I mean. Any suggestions? cheers in advance

Tickets go on sale on the Monday two weeks before the game. I usually get them then so you get to choose where you want to sit and there is enough time for them to be mailed to you back in WA.

You can get them on the night, the lines don't take long. Plus usually you watch the game in your own seats for the first quarter then move to where ever you want after that. At Etihad it doesn't really matter though, they are great seats where ever you sit. Even standing room behind the lower level is a great place to watch the game.

I am going to the same game but luckily have succoured some seats in the Medallion Club, don't have any idea where the seats are though.

Reserved seats for ALL our Melbourne games have been on sale since before the season started. Etihad through Ticketmaster and MCG through TIcketek. They each divert to the other if you try the wrong anyway.

For St Kilda v Eagles.
There is only limited Level Two seats behind the goals in Aisle 27. They are around $57 each.
Level one seats are around the 50m arc in Aisle 44 and are $45.

Heading down to Melbourne this weekend with a few of the lads from footy to run a muck.

Going to catch the Hawks Cats game and the Queens Birthday game... Should be sloptacular!

No , have been for some time. It's only the General admission that they wait until two weeks before so they can tell what blocks to release. Also things like AFL members they wait for the same reason. I bought alot of tickets for non Eagles games back in March /April

It's one of the reasons they will never shift a game from Etihad to the MCG e en if it becomes a huge game.

Can anyone reccomend any cafes/places that do a good breakfast in the CBD area??

Went on some website with breakfast reviews but all the places on there were all fancy crap and all im after is just a decent serving of good ol bacon and eggs, sausages and hash browns....

I know there are heaps throughout the city area but does anyone have any favourites you care to reccomend!

If you like a greasy hangover buster breakfast then Swanston St Walk does a great breakfast. Spruikers out the front will drag you in.

I was in Melbourne for the Carlton vs Eagles game. It was my first trip and i loved it, its the 2nd best city in the world behind Perth.

We had breaky at a few places but by far the best was the AIX Cafe Creperie Salon. I didnt have bacon and eggs but the food there is great and they make a great coffee.

I have to recommend Hardware lane (runs between londsdale street and little bourke street). There are heaps of restaurants all have got the spruikers out the front to lure you in. The one stand out was POP restaurant. The food was brilliant and by far the best food we had on our whole trip, and sooooo cheap for what you get. We managed to negotiate 2 free drinks each and a free tapas tasting plate.

Cant wait to get back there next year.

When in Melbourne for the footy I go to the plaza at the Sofitel Hotel and ANZ towers on Collins St near Spring St.

Went there every day for breakfast :lol: ..... Love this place as everytime i go over have always gone there for lunch/tea but was put off by having breakfast there as one time i went there for breaky..... the sausage wasn't too flash. But went there every day for breakfast and got "The Big One" ( eggs, bacon, hash brown, tomatoes, extra bacon ..... as didnt get sausage and glass of OJ) all for $10..... the guys that work there are good guys too and up for a yarn and a laugh..... besides from having breaky and quite a few tea's at Swanston ..... went to Lygon St and went to my fav restuarant there Papa Gino's.

Everyone i speak to have like me said when they go to Lygon St they have a fav restuarant and its always Papa Gino's. Also went to an Italian restuarants out of the city somewhat called Sofia ..... will try and post pics up in next few days.... meals there are amazing!

I am another that does Breakfast at the Swanston St Walk and Dinner at Papa Gino's. My only complaint about Papa Gino's is the Chicken Parmigiana is far too big for me to fit in an entree of Ravioli Carbonara beforehand.

Been going to Papa Gino's since the night WCE won the Grand Final in 1992 and they gave a free bottle of wine to all WCE supporters.
