    MAGIC PARKING SPOTS

    I know there’s a few, and they’re sometimes hard to come by, but does anyone want to share any secret parking tips for trying to get to the bars in the Arena District? There are garages everywhere, but who wants to pay when you can park for free.

    I typically try to park over on Goodale at the meters since they’re off at 6PM, but that’s not always too easy, especially if there’s an event or hockey game at the Arena.

    Any other good cheap/free spots out there? 8)

    i used to park over off goodale too. until i started working at carlile, then i started parking right behind there. But I have seen towtrucks back there before. So you gotta be careful.

    Goodale…make sure you get there early…9:50-10:15PM for a fairly good space.

    on NON weekend nights (Thurs-Sat) when they charge something outrageous like 20.00, you can park right behind Spice Bar for free.

    The garage under Arena Crossing is $3 even on the weekends. It’s a secure lot complete with cameras. Totally worth the $3.

    that’s funny, this thread also appeared on my left column “what’s happening” feed… but as a 2006 thread, not as a “just upped by dredd” thread.

    re: nightlife in AD… hmm… avoid like the plague. unless espionage/om/sneak/deadmau5 are playing at spice. :wink:

    Yep. It’s some sort of software glitch that we haven’t pinned down yet. We’re moving forward with a new content management system very soon, as this one is full of holes that aren’t worth the time patching.

    If you give it a good 30-60 seconds, the glitch goes away.

    Shmack, can you confirm this camera thing? :shock: I guess after enough residents bitched and complained about our cars getting broken in to and vadalized they FINALLY did something about it. I paid an arm and a leg to park in there, it was NOT part of our rent so it was amazing to me that with all the money that company was seeing they wouldn’t patrol it better. Damn, 2 years later and I still get worked up about it :cry:

    I think the cameras have been there for several years. But good luck getting any use out of them if you need them. I think Nationwide actually owns the footage.

    They recently took steps to secure the resident only level from pedestrian traffic. That should be more effective than cameras. But I’ve never heard about problems with break-ins or vandalism.

    And Standard Parking sucks, yes. Decidedly.

    ^^^ thanks XLD. suuuuuuhhmmer, you KNOW i don’t even make it down past the lobby level! : o) and by “secure the resident only level,” XLD means they installed these garage door things.
