Or planning on getting them? My friend who bought them with me last year said he'll only renew with me if they get Davis
Bought mine last week, although I'm a new season ticket holder, not a renewal. Hopefully the Bobcats get the #1 pick and Anthony Davis brings out some nice crowds next season!
Do any of you guys ever partake in those "Cats 365" events? They sounded like fun based on the brief explanation my account exec gave me, but I was a little unclear what they were exactly, whether they were free, etc.
The ticket trade-in program also sounds like a great perk! Should come in handy when I have extra buddies in town to see their favorite teams. Looks like they had quite a few good eligible games last season.
Any other perks you guys find yourself using from time to time?
Cats 365 is free as far as I can tell, but they literally just started it.
I'd love to tell you some perks but that depends on where you're sitting.
I might upgrade in subsequent seasons (especially if the team starts winning), but these should do for a new Charlottonian... Charlottean... Charlottan... Charlotte resident (I'll have to figure that out before I move).
Do you guys ever do any tailgating, or do I have to hit up a Panthers game for that?
There isn't much tailgating per se, but the local restaurants uptown are pretty active before the games. I'd recommend Brixx and anything in Epicentre.
Most of the perks are for lower level seats, especially club seats. But for uppers, there's still the cats 365 stuff, which I think is streamlined versions of a lot of previous perks. But you should get a food discout and a team store discount, I think?
Thanks for the info guys!
I read an arena review online that listed places like Ri Ra Irish Pub, BlackFinn Saloon, & Brixx as great places to grab some grub & a drink before the game. Hard to say which will become my regular pre-game spot until I check them out in person though.
I've also heard good things about Dilworth Neighborhood Grille, but that doesn't look to be walking distance from the arena.
The Cats365 stuff is free to my knowledge as well. They sent out a survey asking what kind of events you prefered, i.e. a night out, family-oriented events, business networking. I got a call the other day about the UFC event at Strike City Saturday night and I remember a really nice barbecue they had one afternoon last off-season. It looks to be a way to stay connected to the Bobcats and enjoy events other than basketball with other STH's.
Epicentre is the way to go before the games, I say. Plenty to choose from and a stone's throw away from the arena.
