    Just called customer service and reserved my tickets. Who went last year? Was it worth the drive up to Buffalo(i'm 2hrs away).

    excited about the lockerroom thing. It said exhibit...is it the actual lockerroom or just a fake one? Just wondering.

    no i understand! you should definitely come man. i know id end up going no matter what as well haha! last year we pretty much knew the pick when we were on our way to the field house because the von miller rumor to denver had been pretty much confirmed. so we were pumped when we saw marcell on the phone on tv!

    it's def worth doing it at least ocne even if you live 2 hours away. I made the trip the year where the party was on the field (not the fieldhouse) and it was when the first round of the draft was still on a saturday. It was amazing minus the part where the bills drafted maybin.

    Just got my tickets today for them. Kinda exciting. First envelope I've received with tickets from the Bills in it. Very cool. I don't care if it is for the Draft Party or if it's for a game. All the tickets I've ever bought before were off somebody else.


    I'm like a little kid on christmas morning. My wife actually hid them and when I got home from work and asked what was in the mall she said nothing important then had them inside my laptop knowing I would sit down on the couch and open my laptop to come on the boards.

    never been, but I know during game day beverages aren't allowed in the field house... is this also the case for the draft event?

    Very cool man. I too will be going to the Draft Party, I called to reserve my tickets on Tuesday when the ticket office opened back up from the long weekend and I'm expecting them in the mail within a few days. This will also be my first season as a season ticket holder and I'm really looking forward to the experience! Love to see others that share the same enthusiasm.

    I go every year and I drive from Syracuse to do so. But I also use this as an excuse to get out of town for a few days and hang out in Buffalo with a few of my friends and hit up a few of our favorite bars and restaurants. It is a neat experience.

    Do I need to be there at 6:00 to see the locker room? How bad are the line ups? I've got a couple of tickets but I'm trying to figure out if I need to head out early (hour away).

    Cheers

    I believe the locker room is majority of the night. I've toured it a few times at 8ish. The lines to get in the lockerroom come and go. Sometimes it's a bit of a line, other times there is no line. It's all about timing.

    I'm looking forward to it, it's my 3rd straight draft party. Last year they had Dareus stop by.
