Day Trip to Columbus Recap

One of our free appetizers!
On Friday, I went to Columbus Ohio to see the Pittsburgh Penguins take on the Blue Jackets. I went on a bus with my aunt and uncle, along with my uncle's nephew. We left at 12:00 and arrived at Easton Town Center at 3:30ish. Easton Town Center is absolutely incredible! It is an outdoor shopping center with over 150 stores and 35 restaurants. After spending a very short time there, I already want to go back and shop until I drop!

We ate at a restaurant called Bar Louie. Our tour guide had given us a coupon book and Bar Louie had a coupon for a free appetizer with the purchase on an entree. So, we showed our waitress the coupons and she said that we could do it! Win! So we ended up getting 4 appetizers that totaled around $50. My buffalo chicken flat bread was half off for Happy Hour, so my bill only came to $5.50. So, it was a cheap dinner stop.

The view from the seats!
 Next, it was time to head to Nationwide Arena. Our seats were up high, so we could see the action well. We were there to watch pregame warm ups, and enjoy the pregame atmosphere. Overall it was a great game, the goal tending was superb, and the Penguins won!

Overall it was a great day! However, we had some "irresponsible adults" who decided that the trip would be more fun when they were sloshed. So that made the ride home interesting. That was my only complaint.

Me at the very end of a long and exciting day!
Have you ever taken a bus trip to see your favorite team play in another city? I'd love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and let me know!
