I used Craig's List for the last game and while it ended up just being a broker site, everything worked really well and I thought the value was good, too. (125, fees included, for 5 in the lower bowl, vs. Rockets).
for those more in the know than I, what is the best place for tix or are they all about the same?
They are all pretty much the same from what I've seen. You might get lucky and find some cheaper on one site than another, but I don't ever recall one being consistently cheaper than the other. I'd like to compare the fees for each site (stubhub, ticketexcahnge, random broker sites), because I remember some being way higher than others, just can't remember which ones.
Makes sense. I bet they all end up costing about the same. the broker I linked to from Craigslist had just under a 5 dollar per ticket charge (or set of charges) that made 5 "20 dollar" tickets cost a total of 124 and change. That seemed reasonable to me.
